The Prayer Experiment Notebook

When you think of praying, do you see yourself closing your eyes and putting your hands together? It's good, but there are also many, many other ways to pray! Miranda Threlfall-Holmes shares exciting new ways to pray with her colourful prayer experiment notebook.

Chock-full of ideas from paper chains to sandpaper prayers to Minecraft church, with plenty of space for notes and reflections, the prayer experiment notebook is bound to get even the most reluctant prayers involved.

Today we’re sharing just one idea. The ‘God is Great’ collage.

The Experiment

Using colour and pictures can help us to think about God in a way that is beyond words.

Create a ‘God is great’ collage to help you thank God for how amazing he is and for all the things he has made.

YOU WILL NEED:

  A big piece of paper and lots of collage materials.

 

  1. 1. Lay your big piece of paper on a flat surface. Use your collection of art materials - these could include coloured and patterned paper, glitter, stickers, buttons, foil, sequins, tissue paper, wool, felt-tip pens, pictures from magazines or printed out from the computer, together with glue and scissors - to make a collage about how great God is. Cover the whole piece of paper if you can. Stick things on or draw straight on to the paper.

  2. 2. Here are some ideas to help you think of what you might want to do:
    Draw pictures of what you think God might look like.
    Write and colour words to describe God
    Cut out pictures of things from creation that you love, such as trees, animals or birds
    Use colours and patterns that make you think of God

  3. 3. When you have finished, find somewhere to hand your collage that will mean you can see if every day. 

    4. As an alternative way of doing this, you could try making a digital slideshow or collage on the computer, then print it out or show it to friends and family.
