There are many ways to pray. Many use lighting candles as a way to mark or symbolize their prayer. Here is another option – weaving prayers on paper through a loom.
Materials: 1 1/2″ or 2″ ribbon, glue dots (better than tape), scissors
Materials: strips of paper
Cut up strips of paper for each participant.
I’ve used this activity in a variety of ways:
- I’ve used it with lectio divina – where the scripture is read three times and participants are invited to write down a word or phrase that stand out to them.
- I’ve used it as a way for people to write down their prayers for others and the world.
- I’ve used this incorporated with a theme – having them write down their thoughts and reflection.
Invite them to weave their strip of paper through the ribbon prayer loom.
