We share life with people around us by talking to them about things that matter to us, and to them. In the same way, we share life with God by talking to him about things that matter to us and to him. Even though we can't see God we can talk to him through prayer.
(extract from What every Child Should Know About Prayer by Nancy Guthrie)
At Mellor St Mary we actively encourage children and staff to use prayer in their every day lives. It might be to say thank you, to say sorry, pray for others or to praise - whatever the reason God wants us to talk to him.
We have been working with Rhema and her friends from the PAIS team to set up and use prayer stations around school. 'LOVE' has been the focus for the different stations positioned around school and our children have really enjoyed sharing their thoughts, wishes and prayers based on our core value.
