"A prayer space gives students time for reflection in our busy curriculum. Allowing students to interact with the prayer space fills a genuine need for students to reflect on some of the big issues affecting their lives as well as considering their spiritual views on Christianity. This was a very valuable experience for the school for both staff and students."Pauline Walker (Head teacher)

Who are you? How do you feel about the person standing in the mirror in front of you? What do you like about her/him? What do you dislike? What do you think other people see and think when they look at you? The answers to these questions shape our self-image. This activity encourages pupils to ask these same questions, and to consider the possibility that they have been made by a God who loves them just the way they are.

This prayer activity works best when it isn't crowded and noisy, when pupils have time to pause awhile and consider the positive words and quotes around the mirror. When someone's self-image has been damaged, it takes time for love and comfort and words of affirmation to soak in.
