“We are very pleased with the prayer space in our school. It worked out real depth, and shows who we are as a school. We’re always looking for opportunities to help the students to think about the meaning of life and the prayer space helps to form their identity. It’s an important consideration that I make everyday as manager: What suits this school at this time? The prayer space fits well within the task we have in the areas of socialization, personal development and civic education of our students. The prayer space was way more than just a quiet room. Often you see that those spaces are empty and not in use. But this time it was really alive."Bas Bastiaanse, School Director (Netherlands)

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 pupils a simple way to identify and express- to be honest about - how they feel. Pupils 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, pupils 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.
