  •   Don’t forget that you can still access lots more resources on the ‘prayer at home tab’ when you’re at home.

 

 

Knowledge is one thing, but unless we understand it we can’t use it to make the world a better place. Understanding helps us take our knowledge and apply it to our lives. Think this week about how you could be more understanding. How could you empathise and really understand what your friends are thinking or feeling? It often involves making an effort and really listening.
How can you better understand the consequences of your decisions and actions this week?

Click on the different tabs below to explore this week’s prayer resources. We hope you enjoy them and have a great week!

Being understanding of other people and their beliefs and perspectives is tough but it is something that we are called by God to do as each person is valued and created by God.

Think about one of the pieces of advice that you can focus on and take forward to help you in your relationships. What piece of advice do you think is best? Comments below 🙂

By following this advice we are following the Word of God:

Proverbs 2:2-5 Good News Translation (GNT)

Listen to what is wise and try to understand it. Yes, beg for knowledge; plead for insight. Look for it as hard as you would for silver or some hidden treasure. If you do, you will know what it means to fear the Lord and you will succeed in learning about God.

Making Sense of it All: The New Normal

What do you want your new normal to look like? What will you change in your life as a result of recent events? Comments below 🙂

 

Romans 12:2 ESV 

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

John 16:33

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

Put your reading skills to the test and see if you can understand what is written in the paragraph below:

Understanding doesn’t mean that we have to have knowledge about everything and to have it laid out in front of us. Instead it is about being able to form a picture of what we need to know from the information we do have.

How often do you work things out from just a small amount of information?

Do you sometimes jump to conclusions or can you work things out correctly?

Do you trust your instincts?

Understanding is the next step in our faith because, guided by the Holy Spirit we can take our faith and, with the knowledge we have through the scriptures and Church teachings we can gain understanding.

Are there things that you would like to understand better? Post your ideas in the box below so we can explore these through Chaplaincy.
