Prayer in Our Classrooms

The Bible makes it clear we are to pray often. In fact, 1 Thessalonians 5:16–18 says: "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."

At Community Christian School, prayer is an integral part of our day. Each classroom teacher starts the morning by leading students in prayer and encouraging them to offer up their own prayer requests and praise reports. Prayer is not limited to mornings though, and if a situation arises during the school day and a teacher feels it is appropriate for the class to stop and pray again, they will.

Christian parents know that prayer must become a habit. Along with parents, our CCS teachers are role models for students, and encourage them to talk to God openly and honestly. A Christian environment in the home, church and school ensures we are giving our children the best chance of becoming true disciples of Christ.
