Prayers for Manchester and all those affected

Our response through prayer, as a School


KS1 met separately in their own classes and KS2 together in the hall this morning, for a moment to reflect on yesterday's incident in Manchester.


The children were already aware of the incident so a response through prayer was given.  Childlike and without going into any details.  You may find the prayer pasted below useful, especially if you wish to join us as a wider School family.  We paused after each line to allow our own silent prayers to be said.    

Mr Hargreaves.


Father God,


We pause as we remember all the people who have been affected by the incident in Manchester last night.


We have no answers but so many questions.


We pray for the families and friends of all who have lost someone.  We pray for the people in hospital who are injured.  Help doctors and nurses to find the right medicine and treatment to make them better.

We pray for the people who were at the concert and may be feeling scared or shocked today.


Father God – comfort them, heal them and strengthen them.


Give us all the courage to stand up against people who want to cause terror.  Give us the courage to be people of peace, people of God and people who want to make our world a place of joy.
