Children I have had a look at this link. It seems to work for some and not for others. If you can't access this video please don't worry and concentrate on the activity below!

Now consider the UK:

LO: To examine similarities and differences between Christian, Islamic and Hindu prayer


Today we are going to look at three prayers:


Here is an example of the Gayatri Mantra from YouTube. You could use the first three minutes.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlnHON3tAXo


Here is an example from YouTube of the First Surah, the Opener, used in Islamic Prayer 



Here is an example from YouTube of the Christian Lord’s Prayer (this is a

classical version), https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzTHDZh35Vs


Things to think about:

What do they mean? Are they similar or different? 

Look for similarities and differences – what do all three prayers say about God? What do they ask? 


What do the prayers actually ask for? 

Which prayer do you like the most and why? 


You could talk to a parent/carer, sibling or friend about this work, or you could make a list of similarities and differences.
