“The children loved having the prayer space in school. Every child I spoke to was positive and said how calm and relaxed the room made them feel. The children felt like it was a safe place, and spoke about a peace that being inside the prayer spaces gave them. One child said it made them feel confident that they could bring anything to God, and another said how it helped them to remember that they could pray in any way, anywhere.”Jake Bateson (Head of RE, Birmingham)

This short series of prayer activities will help students to reflect on and engage with the Christmas story in a fresh way.

Stories are more than entertainment. Good stories invite us to join in. These prayer activities invite students to participate and engage in the Christmas story as it unfolds, to consider the thoughts and feelings of some of the principle characters, and to reflect on their own thoughts and feelings as well.

Good stories enable us to see our own life-story in new ways. These prayer activities invite students to reflect on the events and relationships in their lives, and encourages them to express their thoughts and feelings, ask questions, and if they want to, try praying.

Five ideas for reflection and prayer are included in this short series, exploring;
+ Gabriel and Mary - Hope and Dreams
+ Jesus, born in a manger - Saying Sorry
+ Shepherds on a hill - World Map
+ Wise men's star - Asking for Guidance
+ Gifts for Jesus - Being Thankful
