Praying through our senses

Hear Taize chants or worship songs as you meditate.

Hold stones or glass beads to symbolise a hard problem; place it near a cross. 

Repeat hymns as prayers (without music), spoken or silent.

CandlesScented tea lights placed in front of a newspaper (to pray for those in the news), an empty photo frame (to pray for individual people) and a photo of your church (to pray for concerns).

Drink fruit juices which have been re-labelled joy, peace, love or patience, and as you drink ask God for that gift of the Spirit.
