What does prayer mean to you?

Explore different ideas and share them with others in this entertaining and thought-provoking game for 2–8 players

Play time – about 20 minutes

Jennifer Kavanagh (Originator) is a Quaker writer, retreat leader and associate tutor at Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre. She is also the creator of Journey Home game.

The idea for this game came from the need for something different for a workshop session on prayer. It has been played by a variety of ecumenical groups at away days and more informal gatherings, including by people who say they “don’t do prayer”!

Individual cards can also be used as tools for personal reflection.

£1 per game is given to Woodbrooke.

“It was such a great way to get a sense of where everyone was coming from – and also I think very helpful for us to hear ourselves saying aloud why certain words spoke to us, and why certain others not. More often we have a silent internal conversation, so it was a very good way of opening out.” Trish

“It was wonderful to have your game at our event today. It certainly led to a lot of deep sharing and the activities in the afternoon when we were told to ‘play’ certainly seem to have been influenced by the game in the morning.” Julia
