Learn to pray (Christianity)

Learn to pray is a resource on the Church of England’s website designed for those interested in praying but are unsure about what to do. It explains what prayer is and suggests some ways in which it can happen in a straightforward way.

Classroom suggestions:


a) Ask students to suggest what they understand prayer is and how people pray. They can draw on their own experience of being present when prayers are said - e.g. school assemblies, or going to a family wedding or funeral.

b) Ask students to read through the suggestions given on the site for praying meaningfully and comment on how similar/different the ideas are to their own ideas in a) above.
