The listening sheep

Prayer Spaces at Home and an Prayer to always follow God

Have you ever been to a big store and while you fixed your sight on something you got lost? Sometimes we lose track in life. When we start to give attention to things that attract us instead of choosing and doing what is right, we lose track. Jesus tells us that just as the sheep recognize their shepherd’s voice so must we recognize his call.  

  • Take some time to think of when you were lost, and Jesus was calling you to follow him again and do what is right.  Jesus calls us through our friends, through those who take care of us and even in our hearts.
  • On a finger puppet sheep, write your name and cut around it.  Do not forget to cut out two small circles for your fingers to fit in.
  • While you place your fingers in the sheep finger-puppet, pray Jesus to help you listen to his voice and follow him.
