"A great way to work through this wonderful Psalm as the young people engage with the text, think about personal applications and have a bit of competitive fun!"

Psalm 139 escap room
Psalm 139 Wide.jpg

How precious to me are your thoughts,God!
   How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them,
   they would outnumber the grains of sand.

Psalm 139.17-18

Psalm 139 is one of the best loved Psalms in the Bible.

Take your youth or small group through this Psalm in a series of nine escape room challenges, written to make them as easy to set up as possible. 

The Escape Room was written with 11- to 18-year-old youth and students in mind, but can be used with older children or adults. The instructions include a few sentences on each of nine parts of Psalm 139.

Everything else you need, you will probably have already e.g. string.

I'd love your feedback, and if you want to submit your time, we could get a leaderboard going!

You can download for free one of the challenges for this Escape Room so you can try before you buy. It's only £5.

See a sample challenge here.
