A gathering prayer for children

Lord God, we thank you for the super people around us.

Lord God, we thank you for the super people around us. Help us to imitate them, and grow to be the people you want us to be. Amen. (Taken from roots on the web).

This week, I would like you to think about your family. We are all incredibly lucky to have a family who support us, and are there for us no matter what. Many people, however, do not have this. They have been alone during the coronavirus, and over the coming months, they will still be alone.

While we eat christmas dinner, with family, people will be alone. While we sit with family on a night, plenty of people will be alone.

So, I would like you to write a couple of compliments for each member of your family, and give them to them. This can make their day, and also show you are grateful for them.

A gathering prayer for children

We can’t learn to read or write without books and pens.

Your first task is as you read this prayer, come up with appropriate actions for each sentence.

Dear Lord,
we can’t learn to read or write
without books and pens.
We can’t learn to dance
without a teacher.
We can’t learn football
without a coach.
We can’t learn to love
without someone
showing us the way.
Jesus, thank you so much
for always being there,
whatever we are doing. Amen. (Prayer taken from roots on the web)

This week, I would like you to think about those without a home or a family in the current climate, so are less fortunate than we are. We are very lucky to be able to wake up in a comfy bed, to a caring family, have food and water every day, and live in a home. Not everybody has it this easy, and as it gets colder, these people start to suffer even more. To make it worse, covid is making it harder for them to get any food, or shelter without putting themselves and others at risk.

Due to this, I would like you all to think about things you are grateful for, and try to write a short prayer to say thank you for these things you have. An example could be,
Thank you God for my friends and family.
Thank you God for my food and water.
Thank you God for my comfy bed and shelter.

A gathering prayer for children

Dear God,
we have many goals in our life:
to pass our exams,
get a good job,
be like our favourite celebrity,
have nice things.
But we know that
having you in our lives
is the only true goal.
Help us to see our lives as you do.
Amen. (Prayer taken from roots on the web)

This week, as covid 19 continues, I would like us to think about the Bible reading Philippians 3: 13-14. If you have a Bible near you, please read this reading before we continue. If not, the reading says about struggling for what is ahead. Because of this, I would like you to think about things you could be struggling with at the minute, and how you can resolve that problem. This could simply be struggling to keep your bedroom tidy, or something harder such as struggling with a topic at school.

How can you fix or resolve this problem? Will it require someone else to help you to solve it?

Young church – Sunday 27th September

A gathering prayer for children

Lord Jesus, you were always so interested
in the lives of those around you.
Please help us to learn to be willing
to share ourselves with others;
to accept their differences
with love for them in our hearts.
Amen. ( Prayer taken from roots)

This week, I would like you all to think about what you could do to help someone this week. Due to the current climate of the world, some people are finding things a lot harder than usual.

God is always there to help and guide us through our life, however what can you do this week to help or guide someone else? This could be as simple as smiling at someone, helping a family member with someone, or ringing someone just to check up on them.

What can you do to make someone else smile this week?

This week, as the new local lock down starts, I would like everyone to have a think about those who need praying for.

Firstly, think about those who are closest to you. Your family, who you are in isolation with, but also your wider family who you can’t always see at the minute.

Then, think about those who have a role in society. So this could be police, teachers, anyone else in authority.

Next, think about our leaders. Those deciding what can be done to keep us all safe, playing a big role in society today.

Now, think about those who are weak. This can be those who are alone, or who have COVID. It can also be people who have to work to keep people safe, or cant work to keep them self safe.

Finally, think about yourself. What have you done through lock down, and what else can you do with the rest of the lock down period.
