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
When people asked Jesus what was the greatest commandment he answered them by saying: "Love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength and love your neighbor as yourself."
Let's focus on that today:
How can we love God with every part of us? Well it starts by praying to God every single day. We all know that it takes time to form a good habit. So today, I want to encourage you during the season of Lent to start and end your day with God.
How can you do that? Well my friends, as soon as you open your eyes in the morning, before you get out of bed and do ANYTHING, thank God.
Start your day by saying, "Good morning God. Thank you for the gift of today." How simple is that!! Then when you crawl into your bed tonight, thank God again.
It's as simple as saying, "Thank you God for today…for the food I ate, for the chance to go do school/work, for my good health. Help me to relax now, Lord, and to have a good sleep. I love you. Amen."
Let's try and get into the good habit of starting and ending every single day with God.
And so we continue to pray as a family here at –SCHOOL NAME--:
Help me Jesus, to make time to pray as soon as I open my eyes in the morning and just before I close my eyes at night to sleep.
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
