Prayer

Think

  • What is she doing?
  • Where is she?
  • What is in the background?
  • What might she be praying about?

Solve

There are approximately 7.4 billion people in the world. Of these, 2.2 billion are Christian, 1.6 billion are Muslim, 1.1 million are Hindu, 488 million are Buddhist, 28 million are Sikh and 17 million Jewish. Calculate the fraction of the world population that each religion represents. Can you simplify each fraction?

Fact: Julian of Norwich (1342-1412) was an anchoress. In the middle ages, anchorites and anchoresses were deeply religious people, similar to hermits but lived in towns and cities. They were confined to cells where they would devote their lives to prayer. They would also offer advice to people who came to seek it.

Question: What can you find out about the life of monks and nuns during the Middle Ages? What is life like as a monk or nun today?

Respond

Describe a time in your life when you or someone you know has prayed. Who did you/they pray to? What did you pray for? Was it a prayer asking for something for yourself, for someone else, or was it a prayer of thanks?

Discuss

Why do people pray? How does it help them? Does it help others?

Reimagine
