Love Our Schools

Love Our Schools is an initiative of Pray For Schools

Love Our Schools #loveourschools

4th to 18th February 2024

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 encourage Christians up and down the country to join together to ‘Love our schools!’

Prayer groups and individuals can 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 you further – to ‘Bless our schools’ in practical ways in the coming weeks and months! Join in the “Love our schools” initiative and use #loveourschools

“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 previous artwork kindly supplied by Heather Parker Instagram: heatheyme

2020 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”

These resources are also available in Welsh

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.
