"The prayer space brought the whole school community together - a shared experience for all. It was a time to be still, to reflect on our many blessings and to consider issues affecting others both locally and across the world. I highly recommend that other schools adopt a prayer space time of their own. You won't be disappointed!"Jane Crouch (Head teacher, Oxford)

Feelings are strange things. Sometimes it's hard to identify how we feel, and even harder to understand why we feel the way we feel. 

However, learning to identify and express how (and why) we feel is an important part of being fully human, and it also helps us to connect and communicate with others. Many believe that it helps people to pray too. 

This activity offers students a simple way to identify and express- to be honest about - how they feel. Students are invited to choose one or more of the 'Feeling Blob Cards' that they relate to and then use the Scrabble letters to try and express it in a word/s. 

If they want to, students can use this activity as a way to talk with God about how they feel. 

This prayer activity was created by Laura Wild, chaplain at St Hild's Academy in Hartlepool.
