Tying Knots: Prayer Activity

You'll need:

  • enough short lengths of string or wool for one per person


Give everyone a piece of string.

Ask people to think about their worries or concerns, and to make a knot in the string (not too tight!) for every worry on their mind. If they wish, they can share their worry or concern with the group.

Now get them to take a good look at the piece of string. 

Finally, ask everyone to untie each knot in their string, giving their worries to God as they do so.
