Thoughts for the Week, from the Chaplain

Week Beginning 11 November 2019

This week's theme: Remembrance

 

Can a mother forget her child? So I will not forget you says the Lord, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands.
Isaiah 49:15 &16

Do you know that God cannot forget you? How does that make you feel? What might the “engrave on the palms of my hands” be referring to? Why is that important?

All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he’ll never let you be pushed past your limit; he’ll always be there to help you. 1 Corinthians 10:13

Will you be pushed to your limit today? If it happens, where will you go for help? Why not remember to ask God to be there for you.

Prayer for this week

It is when we are still that we know.
It is when we listen that we hear.
It is when we remember that we see your light, O God.
From your Stillness we come.
With your Sound all life quivers with being.
From You the light of this moment shines.
Grant us to remember you at the heart of each moment.
Grant us to remember.
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
