Good morning ___school name____.
Wherever you are at the building, please stand up for Jesus and join me in the sign of our faith. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
Mother Teresa is one of the most inspiring women in the history of our Catholic church. She became a nun and devoted every day of her life to help the poor. She also taught us many things about praying.
Mother Teresa begins by explaining exactly what prayer is:
Prayer is simply having a conversation with God. Prayer begins by listening. God speaks in the silence of your hearts and we speak to God from the fullness of our hearts. I listen, God speaks. I speak, and God listens. This listening and speaking to God is what we call prayer.
Mother Teresa's words remind us that God absolutely listens to us. This Lent, let us try to put her words into practice. Although our lives are busy, let us make time and be silent each day to pause, give thanks and pray.
And so we pray…
Dear Lord, inspire our hearts to pray more this Lent. Blessed Mother Teresa, please pray for us. AMEN
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
