"The good provision for pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is seen within the wide range of experiences offered. During the inspection, pupils were observed taking up the opportunities offered by the prayer room, run by members of the local church. There is a great deal of evidence of the wide range of cultural experiences enjoyed by all pupils."OFSTED Inspector (Oxfordshire)

Very few people could identify every nation's flag. Most of us can remember a few of them, and we have no idea about the rest. In a similar way, we know a little about a few nations, but nothing about the rest. This activity encourages young people to think about nations who are taking part in the Olympics and other sporting events, and to pray for for them.

There are other prayer activities in our library which focus on learning about, and praying for, the nations and the peoples of the world. Many of these nations and peoples have less opportunities and less access to basic health care, jobs, homes and education. These activities encourage prayerful compassion, and sometimes even action, amongst the students.

This activity does not need to be attached to the Olympic Games, or to any sporting event. It works best when accompanied by world maps, globes and Atlases for the students to look at and locate nations.
