Today's resource is a mindful colouring activity - why not take some time to pray for the world by colouring in each of the countries on this World Map?
You might want to find out the names of the countries you do not know, write them around the edge and draw a line from the country to its name.
Then you could choose a country each day to pray for as a family, and take it in turns, or work together, to colour them in one by one.

Did you know: there are 66 books in the Bible (Old and New Testaments together) ? The names of 16 are hidden in the paragraph below. How many you can find? HAVE FUN!
"I once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible. A certain luke kept people looking so hard for facts, and for others, it was a revelation. Some were in a jam, especially since the names of the books were not capitalized. But the truth finally struck home to numbers of our readers. To others it was a job. We want it to be a most fascinating little moment for you. Yes, there will be some really easy ones to spot. Others may require judges to help find them. I will quickly admit it usually takes the preacher to find one of them, and there will be loud lamentations when it is found. A little lady says she brews a cup of tea so she can concentrate better. See how you will compete. Relax now, for there really are sixteen books of the Bible in this paragraph".
