The Slot Prayer

windowInvite the group to spend a few minutes with one of the 'centring down' exercises (see Index). Then read through the following, slowly, with pauses of a few minutes where indicated.

Imagine that you are at work, or at school, or at college, or about the home - or wherever you spend your working day.

Think of yourself at your desk, or sink, or whatever!

PAUSE

Then in your imagination:

STOP what you are doing for just a moment

PAUSE

LOOK at the things to hand and the people around you
- the things are created by God
- and the people are created in God's image

PAUSE

OFFER them all, along with yourself as you are, to God
- God accepts all that we are
- and all that we offer

PAUSE

THEN continue, as a prayer, what you have to do
- work can also be part of prayer
- it all depends upon what we are prepared to offer

You could print this exercise and do this on your own while actually in the situation.
