The Teenage Prayer Experiment Notebook
This book is based on a blog run by Revd Miranda Threlfall-Holmes and her teenage son, Noah, www.TeenagePrayerExperiment.blogspot.co.uk. Miranda and Noah developed the blog and book as they could find nothing on the market to introduce teenagers to different ways of praying.
Each chapter of the book introduces a prayer practice, e.g using labyrinths, Lego Bible modelling, prayer beads, prayer walking.
It also includes comments by teenagers who have tried it out and plenty of space for the young person to record their own thoughts.
Each experiment is divided into 4 parts:
- An introduction to the prayer idea being suggested and the context of the tradition
- The experiment - how to do it and what you need
- Space for notes on how it went/ what you thought
- Notes from other teens who have tried out the experiment and their thoughts about it
Packed full of experiments in prayer this is a resource to get stuck into and try for yourself.
