Rethinking youth ministry has a good post on Artful Prayers with some good suggestions for bringing a bit of creativity to prayer time. My favourite is:

Tinfoil prayers – Pass out a sheet of aluminum foil to each person. Invite them to take time in silence to craft the foil into the shape of something they want to offer up in prayer. They could create an object, an initial of a person’s name, or even something abstract. When finished, students can choose whether or not to share about their prayer request represented by their foil creations and then all foil prayers are placed in the midst of the group for a closing prayer.

  1. I thought Nick was by far the best part of the day. I agree that it’s about time for some more theological and reflection on our work. I didn’t pick up the book though so I’ll have to go get a copy!
