Now, this is an exercise for helping your small group to prayer aloud in front of others. It also helps your members recognize and start thanking God for things we might otherwise take for granted.
Start out by explaining the rules. You might say, we are going to conduct Popcorn Praise. It’s quite simple. Using the alphabet, we will give praise to God or offer thanks to God for something beginning with each letter of the alphabet.
Start with the letter “A”. have the group say as many praise statements that begin with the letter “A” as they can. There is no limit, just keep going until there is a long pause. Once the group exhausts the “A” statements, move to the letter “B” and so on until you finish the whole alphabet.
It might start out slow, but as the group hears and is encouraged by the statements, the pace will pick up. It’s fun.
