Pray for Schools Fortnight

 12th – 26th May 2019

The vision of Pray for Schools fortnight is to bring together people to pray for schools in their area.

The vision of Pray for Schools fortnight is to bring together people from local churches and others involved in education – parents, students, teachers, governors, staff and volunteers – to pray strategically for schools in their area and those involved in them.

For Pray For Schools Fortnight this year we have again worked with Thy Kingdom Come

Lord, teach us to pray!

Even though our God is awesome, holy and almighty we can still to come right into His presence – when we come in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!

Prayer has to be one of the most amazing gifts God gives us – what an incredible privilege it is to talk with Him about the issues on our hearts. And know He hears and answers!

The Lord’s Prayer – we know it so well! Recited it by heart since we were small. Seen books about it, heard so many sermons!

And yet, these ageless words still come across as living and active so that’s why we’ve chosen them for this year’s Pray for Schools Fortnight.
