A Prayer For the WOrld
Make an earth! Using anything you like you could paper mache a ballon and paint it, or draw an earth, even use something like clay or play dough.
When you have made your earth think about all the good things in the world and thank God for them. Ask God to help people look after his world. You may also want to ask God to help those who struggle with lack of safety, food and shelter.
A prayer you may like to use:
God we thank you for all the good things you give us (you may want to say here the things you are thankful for) Help us to share well so that no one goes without. Amen
