Ministry Intro

Schools Prayer Movements’ encourages parents, guardians and teachers to pray effectively for the life of their children's school.  The aim is to mobilise a prayer group in every school in Namibia, actively influencing the future of the nation.  CCC globally has prioritised prayer and building prayer movements.  Since Therese Conradie helped set up ‘Mothers Who Care’ (which later changed to the ‘Schools Prayer Network’ and is now ‘Schools Prayer Movements’) many parents of pupils over the years have prayed for their schools, teachers and learners.  This has been a catalyst for not only prayer, but to bring teachers to acknowledging God as their true dependence when times inevitably get tough.  

  Why Do We Want to Pray?

·         There are great needs in the schools… whether it is among the children and our desire for them not to be influenced by bad company, broken homes, depression, abuse, or among the staff, or the schools system etc.

·         We want to make a difference through praying… not because of who we are, but because of who we pray to.  Our faith is in God, not in our prayers.

·         We are commanded to pray… 1 Thessalonians 5:17 “Pray continually”, Philippians 4:6 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

·         God listens to our prayers... 1 Peter 3:12a “For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and His ears are attentive to their prayer.”

  • God is greater than any problem… 1 John 4:4 “The One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”

  What Do We Pray For?

·         Children and staff to receive Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord.

·         Christians in the school to stand boldly in their faith.

·         Biblical principles and standard to be reflected in the school.

·         For ourselves that we would be a positive, supportive influence in the school.

·         Any needs within the school that we know about.

  What We Do

Obviously our main priority is to pray for the school, staff, parents and guardians but prayer groups sometimes put their prayers into action by serving the community in other ways.  Some groups have led communion for the teaching staff.  Some groups have baked cakes to sustain the staff during the longer days when there are lots of extra mural activities.  Some schools have a ‘Prayer Requests’ box that anyone can add to for the group to pray through confidentially.  Some receive regular prayer requests from the head teacher and teachers, and when a school prayer group builds a strong relationship with the head and teaching staff, then a great dynamic of prayer cover can be established for that school. 

  How to Start a Prayer Group

·         Find another person / people to pray with.

·         Pray for others to join you.

·         Inform the Principal.  Assure them that you are there to support and that you will maintain confidentiality.

·         Meet regularly.

·         Pray…. don’t talk!

·         Pray using Scripture… this helps us to keep our focus on God rather than the problems.

·         Pray believing!
