"It is as if the space has tapped into a vein of spirituality in our pupils that none of us, themselves included, knew they had. Even pupils who exhibit challenging behaviour in some lessons have been calm as soon as they walk into the space. Pupils who were already Christian seem relieved that their classmates now understand how faith helps them through their daily lives."Head of RE, Pakefield High School (Suffolk)

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 students 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 students 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 students write!
