The Harting School Prayer
In October 2021, two children from each of our classes worked closely with Rev Harriet Neale-Stevens in writing a new school prayer.
This project saw the children looking deeply at the meaning behind each of the values taught in school and reflecting on why they are important to both the children and local community in Harting.
After taking the time to reflect and discuss their ideas, the children were very proud to share the new prayer with the school.
This prayer is used during the week as part of our collective worship and invites all members of the school community to reflect on how we can demonstrate the values in all that we do.
Harting Church of England Primary School
Lord Jesus Christ,
we thank you for the gift of life and love,
for the birds that sing
and the nature all around us;
give us respect for others and humble hearts.
When someone says sorry,
we are thankful for the gift of forgiveness;
when we are down,
our friends bring us up again;
may we have compassion for each other.
Help us to have endurance when things are hard
and hope in all we do.
Help us to trust in you
so that your peace and love
will always be in our hearts
and in our school.
