Thy Kingdom Come

Every school a prayed-for school

The Free Churches Group has been an active partner with Pray for Schools for many years.

The Steering Group of Pray for Schools met earlier in March to pray for and plan for how to engage even more churches in praying for our schools.

Does your church pray for the local schools?

It's not too late...!

It's the final couple of days of Pray for Schools Fortnight - many churches, groups and individuals have been praying for their local schools… and so as the fortnight of prayer comes to an end on 24th May, in partnership with Thy Kingdom Come, we give thanks to God for all his mercies and grace, having a sense of gratitude for all the churches, groups and individuals who have been actively praying for their schools. May the schools, pupils, teachers and support staff feel the power of God's love surrounding and upholding them all…

** Perhaps this will inspire you to regularly pray for schools in your area? Why not ask your minister or visiting preacher to include praying for schools each Sunday? 

** A date for your diary! Pray Day for Schools 2018 will be on 20th November!

** Why not register your church or group for a prayer event? Get involved and let your schools know you care and are actively praying for them…

From Colossians 4:2-3 - "Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ…"


Every school, a prayed for school? Is yours?

Join us as we continue to pray for schools, as part of Pray for Schools Fortnight.

Living God,

We ask that many more Christians will be prompted to pray regularly for the children, teenagers and staff in their local schools.

Please bless the ministry of Pray for Schools, which encourages and resources such individuals and groups.

In Jesus' name, we pray. 


The Free Churches Group are active members of the Pray for Schools Steering Group.

Pray for Schools Fortnight- 10th-24th May 2018 with Thy Kingdom Come - be inspired by Holy Scripture: from Colossians 4: 2-3 - "Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ…"


Latest News on 'Thy Kingdom Come' - Let The Light Shine

Let the light shine

Friday May 5th will see the launch of Let the Light Shine. This campaign is to encourage people to get on board with Thy Kingdom Come.

The aim is to get people to make their ‘Pledge2Pray’ – and let their friends know by posting a photo of themselves with a candle or other light, as we seek to light up the world with prayer. We’re encouraging everyone to take part, so be creative and have fun!

Once you pledge to pray on the website, you’ll be supported with daily prayers and videos throughout the eleven days of Thy Kingdom Come.

Share your own image of a light, and Pledge2Pray
