Thoughts for the Week, from the Chaplain

Week Beginning 18 Sept 2017

This week's theme: Bible Poetry

For you make me glad by your deeds, Lord; I sing for joy at what your hands have done. How great are your works, Lord, how profound your thoughts!

Psalm 92 :4 & 5

What do you think are God’s great works and why?
Humans are considered the crown of all creation why might that be?
Do you ever write poetry? If so how can it help you? How can it help others? If not why not try to express yourself in this way.

 

The Lord has filled my heart with joy;    I feel very strong in the Lord. I can stand firm against my enemies;    I am glad because you have helped me!

1 Samuel 2:1

What things do you need help with?
When do you feel strong? 
Who helps you when you are feeling vulnerable? How do you stand firm against those who try to hurt you?

Our prayer for the week

Dear God,

Let me be content with who I am, what I have and where you are leading me.

Help me to have a mindset of confidence, courage and thankfulness all day long.

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
