The content of a curriculum for prayer education is being developed from a political-theological perspective. One of the dimensions of this content is concerned with the five images of God: God as near, coming, biased, powerless and reconciling. Empirical research on the basis of this curriculum shows that the participants, after the treatment, have a significant increase in knowledge of and insight in these five images of God. The affective results vary for the different participants in this curriculum about prayer. This variety is being discussed in terms of the formation, conversion, accentuation, regression and neutralization of attitudes.
