P. 1
starting the school year
Designing our own place for God
things to do ahead of time
◾ Print out the prayer service so everyone can follow along.
◾ Explain that students will create their own prayer space. It will be a place where your group gathers throughout the year to re ect and pray.
Many teachers create classroom prayer centers from their personal collections of religious items. (See Appendix [page 130] for more information about
prayer centers.) So why not give your students a hand in their creation too?
In this two-part service, students ask the Holy Spirit for inspiration, and then they celebrate in prayer. The services themselves are simple. The real work is in the planning. The rewards? Your students are deeply involved and personally invested in your classroom prayer space. Does group prayer get any better than that?
