We believe whole heartedly in the value and power of prayer and appreciate you supporting us and your local schools in this way.

There is a selection of ideas below to guide you in your prayers:

We praise and thank God for...

  • The wonderful opportunities we have had in schools and with our partner churches to share the Good News of Jesus’ birth and celebrate Christmas. We were able to lead ‘It’s Jesus!’ worship assemblies at many schools, as well as take part in interactive Christmas Journeys, Christingle Services and School visits to churches.
  • For the provision of the finances and support needed this year for Spinnaker to continue.
  • For our Team of School’s workers who have risen to all the challenges they faced with grace and commitment to seeing the work of Spinnaker continue.

We would please ask you to pray for...

  • That our Team will be inspired and envisioned as they begin the new term and new year in schools.
  • For our creative and writing team as they start work on a brand-new set of resources, that they will be inspired by the Holy Spirit to develop exactly what is needed for children in 2024 to 2026. 
  • Schools and all who work in them – Governors, Heads, Teachers, Pupils, Admin & Support Staff, Children with Additional Needs and Vulnerable Children. From many directions those in schools face pressure. Please pray that God would pour out blessings upon whole school communities so that everyone grows in the knowledge of His truth, love, wisdom and peace.

Praying for your local schools...

We are grateful to our partners Pray for Schools for their constant encouragement and inspirational ideas.
