Daily Prayers for Home
w/c 27 April 2020
This week's Gospel shows how Jesus walked with two of His disciples on the road to Emmaus on Easter Sunday. In the Gospel, we hear descriptions of all the ways Jesus shows His love, care and attention to them. Even so, it is not until near the end of the passage that the disciples actually recognise that it is Jesus - when He breaks the bread and shares it with them.
Jesus 'secretly' showed His love by walking with them, asking how they were, explaining Scripture to them, spending time with them and giving them the confidence to return to Jerusalem and tell the other disciples about meeting the risen Jesus.
This week's prayers help children to look for ways that they can be like Jesus this week and 'secretly' show their love and care to others. While we are isolated at home this is a beautiful way to be creative with our relationships, so you might like to use these prayers as a family.
Each day, children are invited to choose a particular way to 'secretly' show the love of Jesus to those they live with. Perhaps in the evening, you can share as a family the ways you think you were all showing Jesus' love to each other.
NB. The Prayer Leader can be an adult or a child.
Introduce the theme and/or reflect on the previous day's prayer activity.
Consider how Jesus secretly showed love to the disciples on the road to Emmaus and ways that we can be like Jesus.
Invite children to commit to one way they can be like Jesus, by quietly showing love to others during the day.
Optional evening slide – Use the image of a rose with flowers, thorns and buds, to reflect on the day and especially the ways you have been like a 'Secret Jesus' to one another.
