“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)

This activity encourages pupils to think about things that are happening around the world; perhaps things they've seen or heard about in the news, or about family or friends who live in different countries who they don't often get to see. 

Encourage the pupils to turn on one of the battery tea-lights, and then place it on the country that they've chosen. If they want to, they can say a silent prayer for God's light to shine where there is the darkness in the world.
