Active & Interactive Prayers: Newspaper prayers

Contributed by: Charlie Baker, Diocese of Auckland

Collect a few local and national newspapers throughout the week and bring them along to youth group.

Invite your youth to look through the papers. Ask them to read through and look for issues or articles that stir them up inside. Does anything they read make them feel angry? Sad? Happy?

Get them to cut out the article that responded to most. Then invite them to share the issue briefly with the group, and pray together about it.
