Prayer Resources – Week 2

This week’s ‘Word of the Week’ is “disciple”. It follows on nicely from last week’s theme and of course is inspired by what we are hearing in our scripture at Church at the moment. We are hearing the stories of the early church – the first disciples and how they set up the same church we are part of today. Despite being nearly 2000 years ago the lessons, challenges and actions of those first disciples can tell us so much about following Jesus today.

It’s also no coincidence that the word discipline comes from disciple. We often think of discipline as being told off but actually it’s about the choices we make in our lives. You need self discipline to learn a musical instrument or get good at a sport – discipline is actually about how we choose to be as people, not just about the rules we have to follow.

All those people taking exams have to be disciplined at the moment and be committed to doing what they need to do and we can support them in that. Remember to keep them in your prayers this week! Also if you are in Year 11 or Year 13 remember you can start coming down this week to film your leavers video! Don’t miss out!

Discipline is an incredibly powerful thing. It’s what lead the disciples to change the world because they – with a bit of help from the Holy Spirit – faced all sorts of challenges and obstacles and fear and spread the Good News. We’ve all got challenges ahead – how are you going to chose to face them?

Make a list of the challenges that people in your form face and put them up in your classroom.

Don’t put names on it – keep it anonymous – it just keep it there as a reminder of what we’re all facing at the moment. That way we can be understanding and supportive as we meet those challenges face on!

Lord, help us to understand the challenges others face and to find the strength to move forward. Amen.
