All Saints’ – In school resources – Prayer

CLICK HERE FOR NEW NOTICES

We are now in Lent, a period of time when we reflect and repent. There are three pillars of Lent, and one of those pillars is Prayer! Over the next few weeks we will explore all three pillars, but prayer is a particularly poignant one for us to begin with. Prayer is sometimes something that we throw in last minute, or only engage with when we need something, but it shouldn’t be. It is a time for us to connect with God, to spend some time in His holy presence and to reflect on where He has given us guidance in our lives. Use the resources below to develop your prayer life this week.

Remember to comment in the comments box below and let us know what you want to see on the prayer resources 🙂

St Augustine is an incredibly well known Saint, a man who dedicated a large part of his life to God and to prayer. He is famously attributed to having said “To sing is to pray twice” and was a big believer in prayer through music. But as is often the case, his life wasn’t always so devout and faithful. The video below tells us all about his life and how he eventually found God. Once you’ve watched the video, say the prayer below.

This is a prayer that St Augustine himself wrote:

Breathe in me O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy. Act in me O Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy. Draw my heart O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy. Strengthen me O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy.
