Action: Assessing your perceived perception of yourself with Gods view of you.
This is a station i first used for a teen 24/7 prayer room. I realise image is a big concern for teenagers and wanted to challenge perceptions and reinforce Gods love for each teenager as they are. I have since seen this station work in amazing ways the most memorable walking in to a prayer room and observing a small group of body builders weeping and praying over each other realising that they are more than their looks.
Idea: Look in to a mirror and assess how you see yourself, then read what God thinks about you. Work through any differences.
Items needed: Large Mirror/s, Bibles (If I am doing a evangelistic prayer room I will print out the passage), Work Sheet.
Psalm 139 (N.I.V Translation)
1 LORD, you have examined me
and know all about me.
2 You know when I sit down and when I get up.
You know my thoughts before I think them.
3 You know where I go and where I lie down.
You know thoroughly everything I do.
4 LORD, even before I say a word,
you already know it.
5 You are all around me—in front and in back—
and have put your hand on me.
6 Your knowledge is amazing to me;
it is more than I can understand.
7 Where can I go to get away from your Spirit?
Where can I run from you?
8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there.
If I lie down in the grave, you are there.
9 If I rise with the sun in the east
and settle in the west beyond the sea,
10 even there you would guide me.
With your right hand you would hold me.
11 I could say, “The darkness will hide me.
Let the light around me turn into night.”
12 But even the darkness is not dark to you.
The night is as light as the day;
darkness and light are the same to you.
13 You made my whole being;
you formed me in my mother’s body.
14 I praise you because you made me in an amazing and wonderful way.
What you have done is wonderful.
I know this very well.
15 You saw my bones being formed
as I took shape in my mother’s body.
When I was put together there,
16 you saw my body as it was formed.
All the days planned for me
were written in your book
before I was one day old.
17 God, your thoughts are precious to me.
They are so many!
18 If I could count them,
they would be more than all the grains of sand.
When I wake up,
I am still with you.
