Who’s on the Phone?


My sister-in-law telephoned me. May not sound unusual to you but the only time she ever calls me is on my birthday. That’s not today.

She called because she’s a teacher in a school in the Cayman Islands and they did something she thought I’d want to hear about.

They set up a room for prayer.

She remembered me talking about such things and thought I’d be interested in hearing what they did. There were creative stations with bright colours, twinkling lights, drawings and prayers done creatively.

And the most amazing thing…the children were quiet and even reverential. This is not how her class behaves, EVER! But they came into the room, spent time in prayer and she couldn’t believe the prayers. They were praying for their families, their friends and for hurts and pain in their own lives.  They were so open to talk to God and express their feelings.  She couldn’t believe the way the children had behaved and prayed. Over and over, she kept saying she’d never seen anything like it

I asked, “Did someone at the school get the idea from 24-7 Prayer?”

“No”, she’d never heard of that.

“Oh wait,” she looked at a note she had. “It came from something called Prayer Spaces in Schools”. [ahha! from 24-7 Prayer International]

I encouraged her to talk with her coworkers about how effective the prayer room had been so they might do it again. And I hoped that she had prayed as well. 

Can I just say, when someone excitedly tells me, a convinced 24-7 prayer advocate, about 24-7 prayer events it’s a very cool thing.

HT Prayer Spaces in Schools! Well done. http://www.prayerspacesinschools.com/
