The Lords Prayer is a set of common words used across the world to pray to God, learn more about him and grow in our faith. As I started to run more and more workshops I recognised that the prayer offered a great opportunity to draw the group together at the beginning and end of a session using movement.
Over a period of time I began to build a set of choreography that could be used along the side the words, which could act as an icebreaker at the beginning of workshops. Moving and saying Gods word together.
Since then, many people have asked if there was a copy of the movements so they could take it back to their church and their group to share. Since sharing is central to what I do, I finally got round to making an instructional video. Use the movements as a starting point and add your own flavour or feeling to what is already there. Each of us pray differently and each of us move differently, so the movements are not necessarily one size fits all. They are however accessible to all ages and abilities and can be adapted as necessary.
We’d love to hear if you do this in your group, and how you get on, so make sure you let us know!
