Pray for the village and thank God:
That we will all become members of a community working together. This is not about bringing people into the church, but sharing the gifts and grace that God has given each of us with each other, to God's glory. It is about sharing love and forgiveness.
Pray and give thanks for the school:-
That its pupils and staff, that they may learn and play together and show God's Grace and mercy in their work. That the students will mature and learn to the very best of their ability and that the teachers and aids be blessed with wisdom, skill and strength to help the children as they learn.
For any new staff that they will be gifted by God to be the very best teachers for our children.
Pray for the School Governors. May they have God's wisdom and strength for the difficult tasks they face.

Pray for the Church as the lead has been stolen from the roof and so the main church is barred from all but church staff for the foreseeable future.

May God grant us grace, strength and guidance as to how best to proceed under the circumstances.
