The word of the week is Relationships!

This week we celebrate a number of special Holy men and women. Each of them had a special relationship with God. St Teresa of Avila often had a difficult relationship with God and found a way to connect through prayer. She didn’t find it easy though and it reminds us that any relationship we have takes time, effort and work, especially our relationship with God.

What are the most important relationships in your life? How is your relationship with God?

Click on the different tabs below to explore this week’s prayer resources. We hope you have a great week!

Remember to comment in the comments box below and let us know how you get on in your form groups 🙂

Let us start our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

How will you improve your relationship with God this week?

How is your relationship with God? Have you been taking time to spend in prayer and fellowship with the Lord?

Don’t wait unto a crisis hits to call upon the name of the Lord. But rather, in good times as well as bad times, let us glorify His name!

The Bible says:

“So do not fear, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Isaiah 41:10

Let us pray:

Almighty God, I pray that I will be taken into a deeper, more meaningful relationship with You, where I will grow in faith and hear the still small voice within my soul. Help me to be attentive to Your call, that will cause me to walk in Your righteousness. Open the eyes of my heart. May I see the many blessings you bestow on me, especially the very small ones that I sometimes take for granted.

Amen

 

We end our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

We hope you have a great Monday!

Let us start our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

 

Today All Saints’ School invite us to read and reflect on the poem below…

Can one or two students please read the following poem to the rest of the class:

 

One night I dreamed I was walking

along the beach with the Lord.

Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.

In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.

Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,

other times there was one only.

This bothered me because I noticed that

during the low periods of my life,

When I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat I could only see one set of footprints,

so I said to the Lord, ‘You promised me Lord that if I followed you, you would walk with me always.

But I noticed that during the most trying periods

of my life there have only been one set of prints in the sand.

Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?’

The Lord replied, ‘The years when you have seen only one set of

Footprints, my child, is when I carried you.’

(Mary Stevenson)

As modern Christians reading this poem, we can easily apply it to all the challenges of daily life. In the 4th stanza, the Father says “My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you.”

How does the poem make you feel?

This is a poem of hope, no matter what we are going through or where we are at with our relationship with God, God will always love and support us.

Who do we always rely on for love and support? How do we show love in return?

 

Dear Lord,

I am sorry for the times when I forget about your friendship.

Help me learn and grow in knowing your love.

Thank you for never judging me and always being there for me.

Amen

 

We end our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

Happy Black History Month!

We start our prayer by making the sign of the cross.

As we reflect on the theme of relationships this week, it is very prevalent that during the month of October we reflect on, acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of black people, in our own community and in the wider world.

Below we invite you to watch a lovely reflection on Black History Month from the students at Trinity school…

HOUSE COMPETITION

Dear Lord,

Thank you for gift of diversity that enriches our lives and communities.

May we appreciate, learn lessons from and celebrate black people and may we thrive to live in a world that is understanding, equal and inclusive.

Amen
