"I have pondered about why the Prayer Space is so popular with all the different age groups, I think that the students are aware that it such a gift for them, that they are being given time to slow up and find their own space. And finally it is the God thing, we create this space and allow time for God to enter our lives."Rev'd Susan Crothers-Robertson (Chaplain, Brisbane, Australia)

In Jerusalem there is a wall, called the Wailing Wall, where thousands of people push their paper prayers into tiny cracks every day. After the UK riots in 2011, prayer walls appeared in lots of cities - people wanted to express their hopes, fears, gratitude and requests to God. This activity provides an open space for pupils to write or draw their prayers and add it to a 'prayer wall'.

There are lots of alternative ways to set up a 'Prayer Wall'-style prayer activity. Pupils could write or draw their prayers onto sheets of lining paper that have been pinned onto walls, making it more of a graffiti-style prayer wall. Or, instead of a wall, students could attach their prayers to some kind of prayer tree. With post-it notes, you can use almost any object or location and turn it into a 'Prayer Wall'.
