"Working together we can achieve more''
''And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and do good works.''
Every catholic school needs a prayer leader, as it believes that working together to follow Jesus' examples can produce amazing results. Too often we get busy and neglect prayer - conversation with the Lord but how can we keep prayer active throughout our lives?
What does a class prayer leader do?
LEADS THE CLASS TO ...
- PRAY. Pray for the needs of members and prospects regularly.
- SHARE. Seek, collect and share praises, prayer requests, assigning them as needed.
- ESTABLISH PRACTICE. Establish, plan and communicate consistently and focus on special times of class and individual prayer.
- WORSHIP. Work alongside with the teacher and class members to strengthen the spiritual ethos.
- PRAY FOR CHURCH. Pray for the needs of the class, church and world impact as a whole.
- TRAINING. Communicate and provide periodic training related to prayer and personal worship.
THE ROLE OF A PRAYER LEADER IS:
- to be a role model for others
- to serve the school and the community by preparing termly themes
- to support the school community in organising whole school events
- to work together as a team to carry out tasks to the best ability possible
