“Lord, teach us how to pray.”

In my prison ministry, I work with mentally handicapped men who have gotten into serious trouble with the law but can’t be in the penal system. Working on the meaning of words in the most basic of prayers can be a true challenge.

Enter the Daughters of St. Mary of Providence. At this year’s Ignite Men’s Conference in Syracuse, they displayed a simple, interactive board to help teach children the “difficult” words in Our Lord’s Prayer.

If you look closely, I’ve turned over the wooden tile for “trespass”. The flip side says ” sin”. Whow!

Thank you Daughters of St. Mary of Providence for showing me a technique that will certainly work with the men in my prison ministry.
