Join our praying supporters to see the vision of Spinnaker Trust come to pass and for the goodness of God to be in all that we do.

Prayer for the team

As a team and as individuals we value your prayers as we seek to enhance Christian education in primary schools. We aim to provide high quality Christian input, following the curriculum set by the school's locally agreed syllabus. We appreciate prayer that we continue to get the content right, and can develop relationships built with schools and staff over many years.

Prayer for provision of people and finance

We are in constant demand from schools wanting to receive visits from Spinnaker. To meet these requests, we are always on the lookout for quality people to work with us in schools. Whether they are voluntary or paid, a growing team requires growing financial resources. Please pray that the needs are met with people and finances.

Prayer for your local schools

praying hands

Children, parents, teachers and support staff are all involved in making schools the places where our future is shaped. From many directions those in schools face pressure - whether it is to learn or to teach; to keep records or to balance the books, the pressure is there. Even if you know nothing about your local school, or the challenges they face, pray for them. You may like to see our adapted version of the Lord's prayer below – many have found this inspirational when praying for schools work

The Lord's Prayer (adapted)

You are Our Father in heavenYou are so great that we cry hallowed be your name

We long to see Your Kingdom come in our schools.

We ask that your will be done, on earth in classrooms and school halls, just as in heaven.

We ask for your resources, please give us today our daily breadequip us to feed the hearts and minds of this generation. 

Forgive us our sins, for the times we have looked away and not seen the need.

May we teach children about Your forgiveness as we forgive those who sin against us.

We ask that you would lead us not into temptation of complacency,

where we ignore the opportunities we have to engage with this generation.

We understand it is too easy to show a poor example, but deliver us from evil so that we will show them Your grace,

and share hope for their future. Because, our vision is for the kingdom,

and we ask they might see that the power and the glory are Yours.

We ask that in our lifetime, a revival amongst this generation will be a reality, both for now and for ever. Amen.
