An extraordinary day to pray

North cariboo Christian School sets aside Nov. 27 as a day of prayer

A Prayer Wall filled with expressions of thanksgiving and requests for help

Wednesday, Nov. 27 was another extraordinary day at North Cariboo Christian School. It was a day set apart to pray for students and families, for schools, the city and government, the country and for the world. Each year students from kindergarten to Grade 9 gather in the gym to enter into an intimate conversation with their loving Heavenly Father.

“We set up a number of unique prayer stations around the gym which help students engage with God in creative ways, such as through dance, writing letters, drawing and even tasting and smelling that God is good! The kids love it and come in expecting to learn and experience something new about their Heavenly Father,” Angela Zieske, Vigil organizer and board chair at NCCS said.

“At the heart of all good relationships is communication. Prayer is simply talking to God and expecting He will talk to us. We believe God is listening and wanting to connect with each one of us in a personal way. God has opened the door for us to come boldly before Him and ask for what we need through His Son Jesus Christ, so we come.”

Jesus called the children to him and said, Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Luke 18:15-17.

Throughout the year at NCCS, children are given the opportunity to build a living relationship with their Heavenly Father through faith in Jesus Christ.

An ordinary day becomes an extraordinary day when you just add prayer!
