Most recently, my students finished a simple project in which they created visual Our Father slide-shows. Once they are finished, we use student visual prayers to begin class. It has produced a deeper insight into the meaning behind each word of the prayer. This was only done after weeks of careful study and discussion on the meaning of the payer.
The Religion Teacher, a blog that I regularly read, recently posed another great prayer method.
As Christians we are programmed to pray with our hands usually held together tightly. The five finger prayer method is a great way for children to literally pray with their hands and fingers. You can pray this prayer together with your kids in class or have them pray it at home in their personal prayer time or with their families.
