"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)

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.
