Education has changed. Students today are facing so many challenges, which means we as teachers can’t simply focus on presenting the curriculum. We have to help students understand that they’re cared for and that their success is not just academic.

I love how Keep Watch makes us feel really supported and cared for. When we ask them to, they will listen to us and pray for us individually. Not only do we feel encouraged, we feel heard, and that is especially important to teachers.

I’ve witnessed the difference between when prayer wasn’t present in our building and now when it is. It’s undeniable.

This Has Done Wonders

For Our Staff

Cherie Mourlam

I’ve been in education for more than 30 years, including seven years as an assistant superintendent of a large, public school system.

School administrators have so many concerns: student behaviors, mental health, medical needs, state testing mandates, staff morale and then of course the big one — safety.

It’s an incredible amount of pressure and it affects everybody. I’m grateful we have Keep Watch because I have seen first-hand the changes that happened in our school system. It’s done wonders for our staff.

I appreciate how Keep Watch conducts the prayer walks outside school hours, in a way that is not intrusive or offensive. They are quiet and discreet, but the result is so, so great.

CHERIE: We’ve seen tremendous attitude change, as well as cultural change, within our schools.

FAQ

Why should I welcome a Keep Watch prayer walk?

We regularly hear how grateful administrators are for the weekly prayer walks. Tremendous value is added to each school community. Staff teams experience unity and a sense of peace in their classrooms. Student behavior improves and difficult issues many times are resolved.

We have even heard reports from principals of unexplained academic progress that could only be attributed to the implementation of prayer walks.

What is expected of me?

The commitment from an administrator is simply to grant permission for a small group of people to pray in the halls. We provide the volunteers and communicate with the staff member you designate on any additional details.

Of course you would be more than welcome to join the prayer walk as your schedule permits but there is no expectation for you to do so.

Will your volunteers interfere with the school staff?

Keep Watch volunteers are trained to pray quietly through the halls. However, they are available to briefly encourage teachers or to pray in a classroom if invited to do so.

Can our staff participate in the prayer walk?

Absolutely! Many of our prayer walks do include school staff. Teachers may choose to invite a Keep Watch volunteer into their classroom to pray for the specific needs of the class.

Do school staff need to be certified to participate in a prayer walk?

Certification for school employees is not required, but is strongly encouraged. Vision and training events create excitement and momentum for staff who then leave feeling equipped, encouraged and supported.
