"An educational community is enriched when individual differences are respected and welcomed... and I think that prayer spaces are an important contribution to that within the life of a school."Rach Warwick (Make Lunch, Youthscape)

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

Stories are more than entertainment. Good stories invite us to join in. These prayer activities invite pupils to participate and engage in the Easter story as it unfolds, to consider Jesus' thoughts and feelings, 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 pupils 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.

Nine ideas for reflection and prayer are included in this series, exploring;
+ Palm Sunday - Joy
+ The Last Supper - Friendship
+ Gethsemane - Big Questions
+ Carrying the Cross - Worries
+ Simon's Help - Helping Others
+ The Cross: "Forgive Them Father" - Forgiveness
+ The Cross - Saying Sorry
+ The Resurrection - Hopes & Dreams
+ The Great Commission - Making the World a Better Place
