Instructions

Prayer Labyrinth is an ancient form of prayer used by a variety of cultures. It is a place to walk and pray. Prayer Labyrinth contains a single walking path that leads to the center, and then back out again. The Prayer Labyrinth is like a journey through which we walk towards God’s Love – the center point – and then back again to our world to share the Love of God we discovered through this prayer with others.

  • Walk the labyrinth path individually or with a friend.
  • Start walking in the labyrinth. Stop near ‘The Great Commission’ prayer space, and do the activity.
  • When you reach the centre of the labyrinth, stop and live the ‘Be Still’ prayer space.
  • Start your way out. On your way, you are invited to do the ‘Play Dough Homework’ prayer space.

Playdough Homework

This prayer space allows one to reflect on someone they love while forming a playdough heart, which will be given to this person. This person will also be given a playdough ball to do the same.

Easter: The Great Commission

During this prayer space one thinks about how with God’s help the world can become a better place.

Be Still: Gazebo

In the space just be. Be at peace in a place where one becomes aware of God.
