Pray for Schools Fortnight 2016

                                                  Pray for Schools Fortnight 
                                      May 8th - 22nd 2016

Every school a prayed for school! That is the vision of Pray for Schools - to mobilise Christians to support their school communities through prayer. Young people spend the majority of their waking hours in school - far more than in church or at home. We know schools have a huge impact of the attitudes, ideas and thinking of young people, about themselves, the world, and God. Knowing people are praying for you makes such a difference. By praying for your local school, you demonstrate God's heart for your community in a really tangible way. 

The vision of Pray for Schools fortnight is to bring together people from local churches and others involved in education - parents, students,teachers, governors, staff and volunteers - to pray strategically for schools in their area and those involved in them. This year's theme is  Freedom. 2 Corinthians 3: 17 "For the Lord is Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is their is freedom!" 

How Can I Pray?
  • Pray for the school(s) attended by the children and young people in your family
  • Pray for the school(s) the children in your church go to
  • If you know any teachers, pray for them  and the schools they work in
  • Pray for the school closest to where you live, or closest to your church
  • Pray for your own school, or the school(s) you went to when you were younger
Things to Pray for
  • Opportunities for the pupils to hear and respond to the Gospel
  • Biblical values to be honoured and upheld in all areas of school life
  • Practical issues affecting the school
  • Needs of those working within the school and families connected to it
  • Wider education issues
