Join is a prayer week for Scottish schools (Mon 14-Fri 18 November), incorporating European Pray Day for Schools on Tuesday 15th November 2016.
Join us to pray! Here's how:
Our Adult Prayer Sheet gives suggested topics to pray for during the school week, from a national to a local level. For individual use, this can be given out at church, or passed round those who are interested in praying at home for schools.
Our Join & Pray Day Poster can be used to advertise a prayer gathering that week in school or in church. It is blank for your own details to be added. If you are meeting with adults to pray, the Prayer Group Topic Sheet can be copied and handed out. It provides room to add in local information and the prayer needs of your local schools.
We also want to encourage young people to pray for their school! The Christian Pupil Prayer Sheet is aimed at young people who are confident in prayer; it gives a suggestion of what to pray for each day and a challenge to keep on praying after Join week is over. The SU Group Join Prayer Sheet is suitable for use in SU Groups and is aimed at young people who are unused to praying; the handout provides them with a written prayer they might like to say each day.
Finally – if you would like to engage young people in praying more creatively at an SU Group or in church, then check out our Pupil Prayer Stations 2016. There are five different interactive prayer activities which need little preparation!
