It’s good to pray. Jesus says, ‘ask and it will be given you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you’ (Matthew 7v7). Moses set up a tent of meeting where he would meet with the Lord on behalf of the people.
At Sir Thomas Boteler Church of England High School, we have set up our own tents of meeting, where we can gather together to pray for our year 11s as they prepare for their exams.
Great things happen when we join together in prayer! From Monday April 22nd through to Friday May 24th every pupil will visit our prayer space, which has been set up in our Peace Garden. There are five prayer stations, Hopes and Dreams, Casting cares on Jesus, Seeing through God’s eyes, Stained Glass prayers and Twitter prayers.
At each station pupils have the opportunity to reflect on the love of God and to pray for those taking exams and preparing to leave school. Year 11 students are invited to visit the stations before they begin their exams so that they may read the prayers being said on their behalf and spend time in prayer themselves to the Lord Jesus.
