Holidays

The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land  and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
Isaiah 58:11(NIV)

Creative idea, write a postcard to God

Write a postcard to God thanking him for all the happy times that you have shared with family and friends this year. Think of the places you have visited. If you haven’t been able to go away on holiday, remember all the fun that you have had in past years.

You can use the template below to print some onto white card or purchase blank postcards from The Works, Rymans or W.H. Smiths.

Prayers

We pray for our “Away From It All” holidays, for those who organise them and the people who take the holidays. Help us to find new ways to raise the funds to run the schemes in future and to reach out to families in need.

Lord God,
We pray that you will bless us and our families during these special months of summer.
May our homes be places of relaxation, joy, love and peace.
Help us to be considerate and kind,
thinking about others and helping everyone enjoy the blessings that come from you in summertime.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen

Summer Prayer

Creator of all, thank You for summer!
Thank You for the warmth of the sun and the increased daylight.
Thank You for the beauty I see all around me and for the opportunity to be outside and enjoy Your creation.
Thank You for the increased time I have to be with my friends and family, and for the more casual pace of the summer season.
Draw me closer to You this summer.
Teach me how I can pray no matter where I am or what I am doing.
Warm my soul with the awareness of Your presence, and light my path with Your Word and Counsel.
As I enjoy Your creation, create in me a pure heart and a hunger and a thirst for You. Amen.
