“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)

People of most faiths believe that God sometimes speaks through the words and actions of particular people (whether they believe in God or not). These people are usually called 'prophets'. This activity encourages pupils to imagine what God might say to the world, their nation, their town, even their school or family and friends.

This prayer activity can be presented in a variety of ways, depending on the setting and the season, e.g. a letter from God, a Christmas card from God, a love letter from God. Some pupils find it hard to switch from expressing their own prayers to considering what God (whether they believe in God or not) might want to say. This activity works best, therefore, with a team member nearby to clarify the purpose and the instructions.

You will be amazed at some of the things that the pupils write!
