Week Beginning 16th March 2020
This week's theme :Saint & Service
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others. 1 Peter 4:10
Saints are ordinary people who help others, what can you do to help those around you? What gifts do you have that can benefit those around you? Are you willing to serve others, to help everyone no matter their background, status, creed, ethnicity, gender?
Honour one another above yourselves. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Romans 12:9b,13
How hospitable are you? How willing are you to share with others even when you don’t have much? Why is that? Do you view others above yourself? Why/why not? Do you need to change your attitude to a more saintly one?
|Prayer for this week||Additional Prayer for difficult times||The School Prayer|
Allow me to give of myself, to give of my talents and of my goods, to give of my time and of my energy, to give of my heart and of my soul just as your Saints did.
Help me understand the needs of others, never criticizing, never demeaning, never scolding, never condemning.
You have been so gracious to me, always loving, always forgiving, always restoring, never gloating over my defeats, even when I have been so wrong.
Lord God please keep a condemning spirit away from my heart, my mind and my speech.
Keep us, good Lord,
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
Prayers and resources booklet for this difficult time and a message from Julie Bowen, School Chaplain
Please take care of yourselves and your families, keep an eye out for neighbours and as we are unable to visit the phone is a valuable tool for contact especially with the elderly.
The following is an old Irish blessing which I am praying for you all at this time:
Love and blessings to you all,
May the road rise up to meet you.
