“The children loved having the prayer space in school. Every child I spoke to was positive and said how calm and relaxed the room made them feel. The children felt like it was a safe place, and spoke about a peace that being inside the prayer spaces gave them. One child said it made them feel confident that they could bring anything to God, and another said how it helped them to remember that they could pray in any way, anywhere.”Jake Bateson (Head of RE, Birmingham)

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.
