Praying for Schools

We produce a termly Prayer Diary encouraging people to pray for Sheffield schools. If you would like to join our mailing list to receive the Prayer Diaries and newsletters, please email us.

Fiona and the CaSS trustees and others meet to pray each month (term time) for Sheffield schools. We meet at 10am on a Tuesday or Wednesday. You are very welcome to join us. Please email for venue/dates.

CaSS hosts a Pray Day for Schools in November. Download our PrayDay guide with lots of inspiration for schools-related prayers.

Fiona recently wrote an article for the World Prayer Centre magazine, emphasising the need for God's kingdom to come in schools, and encouraging us to commit to praying for that. You can read it here.

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement which the Archbishop of Canterbury is inviting people around the world to join. The wave of prayer will start in May and run for 10 days between the Christian festivals of Ascension and Pentecost (25th May-4th June).

The Wall is a project to build a landmark of 1 million bricks, each brick representing an answered prayer. The Wall will be built alongside a motorway giving it maximum exposure. This could be useful to look at if you are doing a lesson on prayer. You could look at Jews praying at Western Wall alongside this.

This downloadable poster of the Lord's Prayer is a lovely resource to put up on a wall, or frame for a gift. In a classroom, you could cut it up into 6 pieces and ask children to put it back into the right order.

The vision of Pray for Schools is to mobilise Christians to support their school communities through prayer. Their website offers great resources and ideas, including these prayers for schools. Good for school prayer groups.

Make a real commitment to support your local schools through regular prayer. Pray for Schools have produced a short video to highlight the need and to encourage Christians to support schools through prayer.  You can watch it here:


This prayer activity from Prayer Spaces in Schools encourages students to think about their local community, to reflect on what they think and feel about it, and then to pray for people and places where there is need.

A prayer for exam stress from the Church of England:

Keep reminding me of the bigger picture over the next few weeks,
Keep me in your hands when all other hands disappear,
For I am convinced that neither entry requirements nor exam results,
neither anticipation nor doubts, neither success nor failure, nor any expectations,
neither last minute fears nor anxieties, nor anything else in life, will be able to separate
us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Please, don't let me forget it!
