The Beautiful Game?

This week I have been putting together some prayer stations for a local 24/7 prayer week. The theme I have been given is praise and worship but in particular relation to the beauty of God. I've not done anything like this before and it seemed all my stations were becoming very Cath Kidston and ver definitely girly... So I went online to find some more male-influenced ideas and found it very hard to find anything! No wonder there are not many men in our churches, we just don't cater for them! has anyone got any ideas for less girly prayer stations? And please don't tell me they don't have to be stereotypical, I do know, this is just the way it all worked out... Anyway this is what I came up with, what do you think? Bit contrived maybe? would appreciate advice... :)

Football: The beautiful game?

Football is sometimes referred to as ‘the beautiful game’, when players move in symmetry with each other, pass to one another as if they are of one mind, or control the ball seeming to defy gravity. When we move in symmetry with Gods will, we are moving in His beauty, as part of His bigger plan. Can you see yourself as part of Gods bigger plan? What opportunities has He given to you, what doors have opened as part of the bigger plan? Thank Him for those opportunities. Or are you a lone player on the field? Do you feel lost? Ask God to reveal his plans for you as part of his ‘beautiful game’.

My husband is a football nut and this would please him greatly. Perhaps with a ball to throw around as well and you might even keep him entertained for the full hour!

Ach! I can't stand watching football. I certainly hope God's plans don't resemble it. ;)
