Prayer Resources – Week 1

Welcome back! Hopefully you all had an awesome Easter break and had chance to relax and celebrate the most important time of the year! Don’t forget however that we are STILL in Eastertide so it’s still time to celebrate and be happy – even if we’ve come back to school!

This term is a really big term for lots of the members of our community. Our Year 11’s have their last few weeks before study leave and then exams, and our Year 13’s will be finishing The Becket School forever! We need to make sure that we keep all those people feeling under pressure and facing challenging times in our prayers.

This week’s ‘Word of the Week’ is “Follow”. In our scripture stories in mass this weekend we hear about the apostles as they start to spread the good news. They are following Jesus’ commands and telling the whole world what they have witnessed. In these few years after Jesus’ death and resurrection Christianity exploded in the middle east and started to spread and an astonishing rate. It was down to those early followers and their strength, courage and determination that we have the Church in the world today.

Maybe this week is a chance to think about what and who we follow. What do we do to show that we follow a cause or a fashion and what sacrifices do we make to carry on being a follower? Think to about how you follow your faith – what difference does it make to your life? Take some time to reflect on what it means to be a follower of Jesus and what that can inspire and motivate us to do for others.

_89211496_de47This whole term is about Right and Wrong It’s going to look at issues around law and order and about our Justice system. Its going to look at why you can do some things and why you can’t do others and most importantly what that means for you!

This week use the Key Process of “Breaking News” to debate a story from the Easter Holidays. A council in Stoke decided to start charging Parkrun to use their park and it’s sparked a national debate about who’s in the wrong – what do you think?!

Lord, help us to listen to our conscience and be guided by our faith to understand what’s right and wrong. Amen.
