A Lent prayer and meditation for children

Hold your thumb and thank God for your friends, neighbours and for those who you love. Think of the people by name.


Hold your second finger.  Thank God for your teachers and parents by name and Fr Richard.


Hold your middle finger. Pray for our Church and Chapel and for those who attend.   For the Queen and the Royal family.


Hold your fourth finger.  Pray for anyone you know who is sick or lonely.  For children and elderly people everywhere.  For nurses and doctors.


Hold your little finger.  Pray for yourselves.  Thank God for all the good things you have in your life and ask his help for all the things that worry you that you find difficult.
