“We are very pleased with the prayer space in our school. It worked out real depth, and shows who we are as a school. We’re always looking for opportunities to help the students to think about the meaning of life and the prayer space helps to form their identity. It’s an important consideration that I make everyday as manager: What suits this school at this time? The prayer space fits well within the task we have in the areas of socialization, personal development and civic education of our students. The prayer space was way more than just a quiet room. Often you see that those spaces are empty and not in use. But this time it was really alive."Bas Bastiaanse, School Director (Netherlands)

Worrying about something doesn't usually make things any better, and it doesn't make the problem go away. Worrying just stops us from enjoying the good things in our lives, it makes us feel unsettled and anxious. This activity encourages pupils to think about the things that they are worried about and to try and let go of them.

There are other prayer activities in our library that focus on letting go, and particularly on letting go of worries. Think carefully about the space you have available for your prayer activities, and the pupils that will be participating, and choose the prayer activity that best suits your setting.
