Prayer and chaplaincy

Spending time in prayer before embarking on schools ministry is so important. Below are some ideas and inspiration to help you bring others together to pray.

Partner in prayer with...

Pray for schools
We partner with Pray for Schools, a network with a vision to see every school a 'prayed for' school. Discover lots of resources to help you pray for your local schools, including during Pray for Schools fortnight, Back to School Sunday, Pray Day for Schools and more.
Prayer spaces in schools
Prayer Spaces in Schools is a project of 24-7 Prayer aimed at encouraging children and young people to pray. A resource hub for the growing network of practitioners running prayer spaces or reflective spaces in schools, let's get them excited to pray in their school!

"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people."
Ephesians 6:18

Talk to your local team

We believe in the power of prayer and want to encourage you to create a culture of prayer for your schools.

From the links above, we're confident that you'll get inspired to bring together teachers, parents, students and congregations to pray for your schools. But if you need a helping hand, or have any questions around praying for schools, get in touch with your local team. They'd love to support you in this journey.

Team Praying

Pray for the work of Scripture Union

Only with God's help will we stand a chance of reaching the 95% of children and young people who have no contact with a church. A vital source of support are the prayers offered for our workers, volunteers, and the children and young people who we all come into contact with.

Discover all the ways you can support us in prayer, as well as access Bible Reading Guides and subscribe to receive our quarterly supporter and prayer magazine.
