Thoughts for the Week, from the Chaplain

Week Beginning 16 April 2018

This week's theme: Relationships

“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.  Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.” Ephesians 4:2-3 ​

Which part of getting on with other people do you find the hardest? Is it worth making the effort? Which are your strongest relationships and why?

True friends love through everything, and families stick together in all kinds of trouble. Proverbs 17:17

Can you think of a difficult time in the past year when your friends and family really supported you?  Is there someone who needs your support now? Do you have any strategies for sticking with people through thick and thin?

Prayer for this week

Dear God, thank you for the gift of family and friends that you have given me. I have no one to turn to but You, Lord. You alone can understand the hearts of Your people as You have created each and every one of us. Only You can heal relationships and bring together the hearts of family and friends. Help us forgive one another of the mistakes we have done to each other and bring us back together.
Fill each one of us with your love and understanding so we can move forward together. 

Amen

 

 

 

The School Prayer

Eternal God,
Help us through our duty to you
To love our neighbour,
To care for others,
To do our best for and in school,
To work for the common good of our community,
And to care for ourselves as we serve you.

Amen
