Christian Writing Prompts for Easter Week

Since it’s Easter, I’d like to offer some Christian writing prompts for you to use and create some exciting pieces of wordplay.

Take your pick.

1   1.  Pick a character in the Bible and describe his/her day. What are his/her struggles, joys, frustrations, etc. Write at least 500 words. Can you make a story out of this?
 
2.     Describe how a Pharisee saw Jesus standing on the steps of the temple. What did he see and hear? Use all the senses.
 
3.     You get to meet your hero from the Bible. What happens?
 
4.     Take the first line of a Psalm and write a story revolving around it.
 
5.     Write a story that revolves around “Lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!”
 
6.     Flesh out the woman from the well who met Jesus and gave Him some water. Who is she? Why did she divorce all her husbands and lived with her boyfriend? Why did the other women not like her? What was her name?
 
7.     King David meets Daniel. What happens?
 
8.     Someone gives the pastor a note while he’s preaching, what does it say?
 
9.     What is your first memory regarding Sunday School?
 
10. Write a Sunday School sermon for 5 year olds.
 
11. How did Saul feel before David played his harp and drove out the demons?
 
12. Write a short story regarding a person whom Jesus healed. What happened to them after the healing?
 
13. A bird is sitting on the wall as Jesus walks by carrying his cross. What does the bird see, hear, smell? What does he think?
 
14. Describe God’s love, but you can’t use grace, mercy, or love.
 
15. God has given you a new spiritual gift. What is it and what do you do with it?


I hope you enjoyed your choices. Have a blessed day.
