Rev Hannah and the Open The Book team have really missed coming into school, but have been thinking about us all.
Rev Hannah has shared this prayer with us to think about Easter:
We thank you that you are always with us, even in this strange and difficult time.
We pray for each other- for friends we cannot be with, family in different homes, our teachers, frontline workers, people who are unwell and those who look after them. We pray in our sadness as we notice dreams and hopes that, for now, are lost.
In our homes this holiday time, when we are worried, help us to feel your peace. When things go wrong, help us to know that we can always start again. When we feel joy, may we remember it and let it fill us.
On Good Friday, when so much of our normal lives has been given up, may we be comforted as we remember that Jesus gave everything up for us.
And when we celebrate life and hope on Easter Day, may it sink into our souls and make us happy. Wherever we are, and whatever we face, may we all know God’s love and look forward to a time when we can all be together again.
