Prayer Resources – Week 4

We focussed last week on the question – Who is my neighbour? The simple answer was that ‘everyone is’, but the difficult truth is that it means we have a responsibility to each any every person to show God’s love and mercy. This brings us nicely to this weeks ‘Word of the Week’ – Commitment.

Commitment is about being faithful – to our relationships, to our faith and to each other. It often requires that we give of ourselves and put other people first and this can be challenging! As we continue this Jubilee Year of Mercy, let’s think this week about how we can stay committed, stay strong and stay faithful to what and who we believe in.

Monday/Tuesday

We begin with the Sign of the Cross

It’s time for our “Word of the Week” watch the video above and check out for the notices at the bottom of the screen – don’t forget to leave your comments below!

If you’ve still not made your form door a door of Mercy yet then make a sign and put it up! As the video said – get our your planners and make a commitment to do something this week – It could be one of the 7 Acts of mercy!

Lord, help us to stick to our commitments. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross

Tuesday/Wednesday

We begin with the Sign of the Cross

We are three weeks into January. How are those new years resolutions going?!  Commitment is about seeing things through – about keeping your promises. When we look to God we see someone who keeps his promises – but can we be the same.

Watch this:

Think about the promises you make every day – do you stick to them.

How can these words above inspire you to be more faithful and committed?

Lord, help us to be more committed and keep our promises. Amen.

Thursday

Forgiveness-LargeWe begin with the Sign of the Cross

This whole term is about Networks and how we connect with those around us.

This week use the Key Process of “Put yourself on the line” to debate the following statement.

A real friend should always be forgiven no matter what they do.

Lord, help us to understand how we connect with other people and to form positive and healthy relationships. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross

Friday

We begin with the Sign of the Cross

As you know, we are going to use the Scripture from this Sunday’s Gospel to reflect on every Friday. If you are in KS 3/4 You can use your planners to to help you understand the scripture.

This year we want to bring the Word of God to life on a Friday morning to help us reflect and understand scripture a little bit better, so with the help of our school community a different person each week will read our Gospel and share what it means to them. Use your planners to help you discuss and explore the story further.

Lord, help us to listen to and follow your word. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross.
