The Wheel

This could be used at the start of a new prayer group, or a one-off prayer session, to help people get to know each other before getting down to more formal praying. The movement encourages people to truly encounter each different person.

PREPARATION

The leader draws up a list of questions - about seven.

Start with simply asking each person their name or some fairly flippant kind of question.

The next question may be to ask for a place in the Bible where Jesus or some other person is at prayer.

This could then lead to asking about group members own understanding of prayer.

Draw up five to seven questions.

METHOD

Ask everyone to stand in two circles facing one another.

The leader asks the first question. Allow a minute each way for the twosomes to give each other an answer. They should preface their answer each time with their name. Be directive about the timing so that each person has a chance to answer.

Then ask everyone to move one pace to the right so that they now have a different partner facing them.

Ask the second question and so on.

Allow time for sharing of the experience at the end.
