A friend in need.
Thank you God for my friend ……………. (name her/him)
She/He knows when I need someone to listen.
Lets me talk about my worries and struggles.
Shows me the good side when I can only see the bad.
Laughs with me, not at me.
Gives me good advice.
Lets me talk about you.
Thank you God for ……….
Please let me be a friend like that for someone else. Exodus 18:1-27

A second chance
God of new life,
be my city of refuge.
When I have done wrong,
I will come to you.
You will be my safe place in this world
until I can set things right again. Joshua, Ch 20.

Reflection – Anna Byrne DC

You do not know what you have until you lose it!
O God,
I don’t know what to do.
I feel like life will never be the same again.
There seems to be no reason to hope.
I want to hide and cry.
Hold me and comfort me.
Remind me that you’re here with me.
Help me find something to be hopeful about.
Bring me back a hope-filled life. 2 Kings 25:1-21

Life
Giver of Life let us remember that all of life is special. Help us remember the beauty of;
life, newly formed, unborn babies, wrinkled and bald,
life, old men and women, wrinkled and bald,
life, sick people, undergoing treatment, wrinkled and bald,
all of life, the old and young, the sick and the healthy, the prisoner and free
Help me, giver of life, to remember that all of them are special. Amen
Psalm 139
