The Lord's Prayer - unspoken

Here's a resource I've been using in schools and churches and in training sessions for a few years now. I can't remember where I fist saw this but many thanks to whoever first thought it up. I've added some of my own actions to replace those I've forgotten. It's been used in schools where there are more than 50 native languages, with KS1 children who find the vocabulary difficult to access and with a number of schools who have asked for help in teaching prayer. I've used it in Sunday worship, informal church and in work with leadership groups. It brings a different dimension to a prayer that has brought security, comfort, vision and perspective for centuries. Try it out, see if it works for you, think about making up your own actions or work with a school council or worship team to create your own interpretation.
