'I asked my daughter to tell me her worries and she said 'I haven't got any mummy, I let them go on the bus'Parent (England)

We need your help.

More than a million children and young people, of all faiths and none, have already participated in a temporary prayer space in their school… but it still feels like this is just the beginning.

Every year there are more prayer spaces than in the one before, and in more nations too. The last time we checked, there had been prayer spaces in schools in 30 nations… and that was before France joined the list a couple of weeks ago.

These numbers are encouraging, of course, but it’s the stories of the impact that these prayer spaces are having on the lives of the children and young people that really matters. If you’ve ever led or helped with a prayer space in a school, you’ll know exactly what I mean. If you haven’t (yet), here are a few recent examples of pupil’s feedback:

  • “I loved this experience, it really taught me more about myself and about others.”
  • “It made me feel very relaxed and release anger and stress that I have inside.”
  • “I have liked being in here, as I can be honest and tell my truth.
  • I have had time to be myself and face up to what I have done.”
  • “It helped my friends ask God into their lives, as well as hearing God talk to me.”

Now, imagine a million comments like these.
