Thank you again to all the help and suggestions for this week theme/resources.

It was also brilliant to hear that people are starting to lead the form time Act of Worship – keep it up! If there is anything that would be useful to help you guys lead the prayer for each other then let me know by leaving a comment at the bottom of this page!

This week is all about Doing the right thing.

Monday

We start with the Sign of the Cross.

A lot has been said about a simple handshake. Patrice Evra and Luis Suarez have a long and complicated history, but when the 2 teams met recently, they put that aside to show respect for those who lost their lives in the Hillsborough disaster.

Evra Said:

“I think the most important word today was respect because it was a game between two big clubs that have both had big tragedies,” 

“That’s why, although a lot of people were talking about me shaking hands with Suarez, the story of the clubs is bigger than that. It’s why I think if I didn’t shake his hand, I didn’t respect the story of both clubs.

“In the end, this time, he shook my hand and it was more important to respect the families who lost a lot of people.”

Have you ever had to do something difficult but that you knew was the right thing to do?

Morning Prayer: Lord help us to have the courage to do the right thing, even when it’s not easy. Amen

Prayer at the end of the day:

We start with the Sign of the Cross.

Think for a moment about the things you’ve done today. Have you done something you were proud of? Something that was the right thing to do?

Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Tuesday

We start with the Sign of the Cross.

Vote with your feet! History is full of people who went out of their way to do the right thing. Put a piece of paper on each side of your form room. On one put the words agree on another put the words disagree. The answer the following questions by moving to the side of the room that answers the questions for you. Take a bit of time to hear why the different sides have chosen their answer. The idea is not to win the argument but to start to think about whether we are strong enough to stand up for what we think is the right thing to do.

Agree/Disagree?

– It’s okay to tell a joke about someone else as long as it’s a joke.

– It’s okay to talk behind someone’s back as long as they won’t find out.

Morning Prayer: Lord help us to see the right thing to do and to stand up for those people who need our help. Amen

Prayer at the end of the day

We start with the Sign of the Cross.

Think for a minute about your day. Have you seen something today that you knew wasn’t right? Did you do anything about it?

Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Wednesday

October is Black History Month, this iconic speech from Dr Martin Luther King outlines his dream for a better world. He wasn’t afraid to stand up and speak out against injustice.

What do you dream of seeing in the world? How can you make it a reality?

Morning Prayer: Lord, give us the courage to dream. Give us the courage to make those dreams a reality and to create the type of world you call us to build. Amen

Prayer at the end of the day

Think for a few moments about what you have achieved today. Then think about what you dream for tomorrow.

Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Thursday

We Start with the Sign of the Cross

Read this letter from St Paul to the Galations:

Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted.  Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfil the law of Christ.  If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves. Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else,  for each one should carry their own load.

Talk about which line you think is the most important.

Morning Prayer: Lord help us to carry each others burdens and fulfil the law of Christ. Amen

Prayer at the end of the day:

We start with the sign of the cross.

St Paul told us this morning that when we do the right thing we can be proud of ourselves. What have you done today to make you feel proud?

Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Okay it’s a bit old now, but it’s a classic and the words are as true today as they ever were.

Prayer and the end of the day:

We start with the Sign of the Cross.

Think about the things that you loved this week. Think about the choices you and other made to make those good things happen. Think about the times where you did the right thing!

Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.
