Love Our Schools
Love Our Schools is an initiative of Pray For Schools
Love Our Schools #loveourschools
All through the year hundreds of prayer groups meet together to pray because they want to support their local schools. As we look forward to the new hope that springtime brings, we thought it’d be great to encourage Christians up and down the country to join together to ‘Love our schools!’ We have Covid adapted resources and plenty of outdoor ideas. They are also available in the Welsh language.
Why not choose a date for this in February or March
Prayer groups and individuals could set aside a time of prayer for their schools, using our specially written Pray for Schools resources. And then, having prayed, perhaps God will lead us further – to ‘Bless our schools’ in practical ways in the coming weeks and months! Join in the “Love our schools” initiative and use #loveourschools
We have some new resources based on the theme ” Care for each other and the Environment”
“Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples—when they see the love you have for each other.” John 13 v 34- 35

In the past prayer groups have baked cakes or asked their church to buy chocolates or plants and flowers. One group even put together gifts of stationery for the teachers with pens and pencils and fun post-it notes. Members of the local prayer group have delivered these and let the school know they are praying for them. Do encourage your local church to get involved, obviously please following any local covid restrictions. Gifts in sealed paper bags work well. We have also encouraged those able to offer practical support to their schools and for children and young people to make a card for their teacher or be kind to those on their own.
We have some simple thank you cards using the artwork kindly supplied by Heather Parker Instagram: heatheyme

Last year’s resources were based on Ephesians 4 v 32
“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ, God forgave you”

There are many ways to love others – kindness is a great place to start. Our prayers and actions can be ways to reflect God’s love for our School Community.
