Study hall isn’t thought of as a holy place. Students might gossip, text, sleep — or, if moved, actually do schoolwork. In such environs, Jesus Christ is not typically invoked.

But one student at Pine Creek High School in Colorado Springs took a different view. Chase Windebank, a self-identified “non-denominational Christian,” thought he could use “seminar” — Pine Creek’s version of study hall — to hold a prayer meeting.

“Freshman year, me and some friends decided to use seminar, instead of talking and texting, to pray,” Windebank told The Washington Post. “Talking about stuff that matters to us and God and stuff.”
