Description

Raymond Friel brings all his experience as a teacher and headteacher in Catholic schools to this new collection of prayers for teachers to use with their pupils in the course of the busy school year. The themes reflect the concerns of today’s older primary and secondary school pupil with prayers for those searching for their identity, for those dealing with the stress of exam preparation or struggling to understand their path in life.

Reviews

Willie Slavin, Networking Magazine

The final pages are just delightful examples of how schools are already responding to the prayer revival. Where else would you find evidence that the ancient practice of Lectio Divina is alive and well in both Downside School in Somerset where a sixth former can claim "in Lectio I have time to sit back and appreciate what God does in my life"; and in St Ambrose RC Primary School in Manchester where every day begins where the whole school "opens ourselves to what God wants to say to us" and children by Years 5 and 6 "...are able to articulate very sophisticated and thoughtful expressions of the Word of God". If all of this is not sufficiently enticing to make you put this book on your list of highly desired, nay, essential purchases, I can reveal that its USP has to be Lulu's letter to God and the reply that is provoked.
