Week 1 - Lucy

At the end of term, we gave out ‘staff blessings’ to hundreds of school staff in our settings. Please pray that these would encourage and bless those receiving them.

Please pray for me as I slow down and pause over the Easter period. Pray for rest and fun with my family.

Thank God for two wonderful new chaplains joining our team! Please pray for them as they settle into the role. Pray that they would feel fully welcomed into our team.

Please pray for our chaplains as we train to use the ‘Starfish’ mentoring programme in our work in schools. Pray that God would bring us volunteers to support this work.

Thank God for the great relationship we have with Ridley College, where I’ve been developing school chaplaincy training. Please pray that students would apply for the course starting this September.

Week 2 - Kori

Praise God for our Easter Prayer Space, which gave children an opportunity to think and reflect. Please pray that something of that time will carry with them through the holidays.

Thank God for the two new children on the TLG coaching programme. Please pray for the forming of strong relationships between each child and their coach.

Please pray for Darren Gates as he goes into his last term as headteacher at St Matthew’s; that he’d know how valued he is and the positive impact he’s had.

Please pray for the staff and students of St Matthew’s as they go through an inevitably tricky period of changing leadership. Pray that the new Headteacher would champion chaplaincy.

Praise God for the wellbeing drop-ins that I have been able to continue this year for staff. Please pray that staff will find these beneficial and supportive.

Week 3 - TOM

Please pray for students as exams start; that they will be able to keep calm and take the pressure off themselves.

Pray for staff as we support students in and out of exams. Give us the right words to get them through this time.

We pray for West Suffolk College; may the time I have there make a difference and be of help and support in doing God’s work

We pray, for Abbeygate College, that the time I spend in the sixth form will make a difference and have a positive impact.

I would like to pray for the continued work in the two colleges and ask God to show me how I can be more supportive and more visible in both places.
