Elementary:

We open our prayer, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

We hear in Matthew's Gospel (6:19-23) "Where your treasure is, your heart will be also"

Think of what you treasure… what you hold close to your heart that you just "love!". What or who is valuable to you?

Do you treasure: games, movie stars, clothes, looking good, music, friends, family, yourself? The list goes on and on of the many things that pull at our hearts.

Do you treasure and look for God?

Let us pray:

Lord God open our eyes, ears, minds and hearts to see you and treasure you in our lives. And Lord, send us good friends to treasure as we journey through summer life.

We pray in Jesus' name

Amen.

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.​


High School:

We open our prayer, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

We hear in Matthew's Gospel (6:19-23) "Where your treasure is, your heart will be also"

Think of what you treasure… what you hold close to your heart?

Do you treasure: games, movie stars, clothes, looking good, music, friends, family, yourself and the list goes on and on of things that vie for our hearts and attention.  Matthew's Gospel reminds us that where we put our energy is part of who we become and it's a question of balance.

If we treasure food to the exclusion of all else – that can be unhealthy …

If we treasure friends to the point of losing ourselves to have friends, that can be unhealthy …

If we treasure partying to the exclusion of other responsibilities, that can be unhealthy…

And so on … you already know this….

Likewise, if we treasure peoples, things and stuff to the exclusion of God, how could we ever hope to find him?

Let us pray:

Lord God open our eyes, ears, minds and hearts to see you in our lives. Jesus, help us become balanced people, physically, emotionally and spiritually

And Lord send us life-giving companions on this journey.

We pray in Jesus' name,

Amen.

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
