Make way

Prayer Spaces at Home and a Prayer for the right path

Hi kids!

Just like St John the Baptist, the church during this Advent is calling us to ‘Prepare the way for the Lord.’ We are invited to look at ourselves and see what is blocking the path which leads us to God’s Love. We need to see which bad habits and sins are blocking our path. 

One way of clearing the path is by confessing our sins.  With a clear path it will be easier for us to see the Lord’s constant love and presence in our lives. 

The prayer space we are going to do today is called – Make Way and to do it  we need:

  • A path template template
  • small pieces of paper
  • Marker and/or biro
  • Take some time to think of the bad habits and sins which are blocking the path to God’s Love.
  • On each piece of paper write or draw the bad habits and sins. 
  • Squash the papers and place them on the path template.
  • Now, while you look at these obstacles, ask  God to help you clear up the way so that you can see and experience more of his constant presence and love in your life. 
  • Finally, while you remove the small squashed paper balls from the path you can plan to go for confession so that you will be making way for the Lord. 

Bye Bye Friends till we meet again.
