Prayer Day 2017

Each year group started their prayer time by saying this opening prayer.

Let Us Pray

As we gather together

Lord help us to concentrate on you.

As we set aside the things that distract us

Lord help us to concentrate on you.

As we leave the hustle and bustle of our classrooms

Lord help us to concentrate on you.

As we forget about ourselves

Lord help us to concentrate on you.

Each Class made a metre of prayers to share.

How many prayers can you count altogether?

During our prayer day for ‘Thy Kingdom Come’, each Year Group spent time in the hall visiting fourteen different prayer stations. We ended our time by lighting candles and reflecting silently on what we had experienced. It was a fantastic day and we loved having the opportunity to think about others and pray in different ways. We prayed for our school, the churches in Chudleigh, the local community, our country, our Queen and Government and the wider world.
