"It was an amazing morning. I have to say I've never seen anything like that. It absolutely blew me away - absolutely incredible. I kept thinking 'I wish I'd thought of that', I wish I'd thought of that, I wish I'd thought of that!"Richard Atkins (BBC reporter, Gloucester)

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 students 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. Students 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'.
