Prayer: How and Why?
Many religions believe that there is a way of talking to God. Prayers are sometimes done in ornate services, with poetic language and amazing music. But sometimes people pray because they are desperate, frightened or crushed. Prayers can be to Allah, to Jesus, to Krishna or to ‘someone, but I’m not sure who’. Religious people pray – but so do lots of agnostics and even some atheists! There are lots of stories of answered prayers from many religious people. But some prayers don’t seem to get the answer you want. We’re still waiting for world peace! This year entrants were asked to make a work of art that shows people praying, or an answer to prayer, or an unanswered prayer, or thier idea or experience of prayer, thinking about how and why people pray, and explaining thier ideas to go with the image.
