Prayer Lines


  • Pens
  • Paper
  • A slide/ piece of paper similar to this one



The congregation thinks of a short prayer individually and writes it down, slowly, on their piece of paper. On the same piece of paper they continue to write out the short prayer another nine times. It is meant to be like doing lines at school. This is not a punishment, but instead time to think about what they are praying as they write. This intercession can be adapted for children by having them say their prayer several times or writing down less times dependent upon ability.
