Prayer Spaces at Home and a Prayer to find balance

Hi Kids!!

Have you ever been working and got tired to the point that you cannot concentrate? Or else have a week with many events and end up super tired? 

Jesus invited the apostles to rest a bit because they had been going for long and were not even finding time to eat. Here Jesus teaches us that it is important to work but it is also important to rest. 

The Prayer Space we are going to do is called Rest. We only need a cushion and a carpet if you like. Just like the apostles and Jesus tried to rest, so will we. Spread the carpet and lay it on with the cushion underneath your head for comfort, and try to spend a bit of time in silence. If a thought pops up let it go, just like seeing ships from the shore. Try and stay for three minutes. You can also use the below piece to keep track of time with a couple minutes of music and a moment of silence.

Pause for a couple of minutes.

When you get back up, say a prayer to praise God for the beautiful life we have balanced with work and rest. 

Bye bye friends, until we meet again. 

How to use this space

God speaks to us in many ways, including through prayer at home. Here you will find useful background and activities to better understand how to pray, helping you to connect with God in your daily life in a meaningful way.
