Prayer Ideas: Fold a Prayer

Coming together with others in prayer can be a meaningful experience, as we share with one another our faith and gratitude. However, sometimes we may not feel comfortable in vocalising our prayer.

In a group, give everyone a piece of paper and ask them to write a one-line prayer request at the top of the page, When they have done this they should fold over the paper, then pass the paper to the left. Each person should now have a different piece of paper on which they can write another one-line prayer and fold it over again. The paper should be passed on several more times until five or six prayers are on the page. Then everyone should stop, unfold and read their paper. Invite everyone to spend a few moments silently offering these prayers to God.
