In this unprecedented time of church and school closures, Ten Ten is offering all schools and their families the opportunity to access FREE prayer resources for the home.
On Palm Sunday, Jesus arrived in Jerusalem riding a donkey and greeted by crowds shouting, ‘Hosanna to the Son of David!’ By Good Friday, the same crowds were calling for Him to be crucified. This ‘Holy Week’ is the final week of Lent which takes us to Easter Sunday, the most important event in the Church calendar.
This week, our prayers focus on the last supper that disciples ate with Jesus, and help children to prepare for Easter.
Welcome to the second week of your new ‘Prayer at Home’ resource!
The message of this week’s Gospel is that like Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, we too can be raised to new life through belief in God.
The prayers create space for children to reflect on their ‘new normal’ – albeit a temporary one – and understand that as Christians, we can always know a new normal because we are always offered forgiveness and a fresh start when we ask.
Welcome to your new ‘Prayer at Home’ resource!
This week's Gospel tells of a man who was born blind receiving miraculous healing after an encounter with Jesus: the story helps us to reflect on how Jesus restores both physical and spiritual sight.
The blind man who was healed came openly and honestly to Jesus, and so was able to see Jesus as He truly is, the Son of God. However, the religious leaders of the time, the Pharisees, were more concerned with their own dogma and failed to see the true Jesus.
This week's prayers help children to know that they can come to Jesus openly and honestly and share all their questions, hopes and fears. As they do this, they will be invited to recognise how Jesus is at work in every moment of their lives.
