GOING BACK TO BASICS WITH THE LORD’S PRAYER.  If you put yourself first when you pray, here's how to get your priorities back in order.  By Julia Attaway. My kids are back to school, and I find I’m going back to basics, myself. I’ve only recently realized that despite all the thousands of times I have prayed the Lord’s Prayer, I’ve never thought about it as a model for the priorities in my petitions. It would be a completely different prayer if the lines were re-ordered according to my natural inclinations. For one thing, it would start off with the “gimme”–the daily bread (though probably adjusted to a monthly shipment). Then it would loop through the convenience issues (please get rid of what’s tempting me so that my life is easier) before arriving at the request to forgive me. Finally, I’d tack on a “Thy will be done” or a “thanks.” Needless to say, this is entirely backwards.  When Jesus said, “This, then, is how you should pray” (Matthew 6:9) His priorities for me were:

1)  Make God’s name holy and acknowledge Him as the creator of the universe.

2)  Place His kingdom and His will first in my life, ahead of my desires and plans.

3)  Ask for what I need today. Think in terms of manna and trust. 

4)  Ask Him to forgive me in direct proportion to the forgiveness I have offered to others.

5)  Ask Him to spare me from tests and temptations, and to preserve my soul from evil.

Using the Lord’s Prayer as a blueprint for how to pray has an interesting but predictable effect: The theme of my petitions becomes more centered on God than on me. Which is as it should be.

A BACK TO SCHOOL PRAYER FOR OUR CHILDREN.

As children head back to school after summer vacation, some are excited while others probably wish summer would never end. But just as we once did, they will reconnect with friends and make new ones. They will learn and grow throughout this new school year. Childhood, though brief, is an important season in life—making powerful memories that live forever.  Parents and grandparents have a huge opportunity and responsibility to nurture the bodies, minds and spirits of our children. The Scripture teaches us that children and grandchildren are a blessing from God. In the Bible, when the mother brought her young ones to Jesus, He blessed them and explained to the disciples that they must become like children to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. All God’s little ones are precious in His eyes, and we must take extra precautions to keep these little ones safe.    These are also challenging times for kids as they go back to school. With all that is happening in the world, their safety is not guaranteed. We have seen more than our share of school shootings, and with social media, bullying is taking place now more than ever. Kids face social, academic and physical pressures at school and home.  We must watch over the children in our care or in our communities with prayer. We must think of ways to help them be the best they can be and to teach them how to become loving, caring and purpose-driven adults. We must always pray for their well-being, safety and personal success. We must teach them about God, faith, caring for others and becoming stewards of our planet. This is a huge job, but we don’t have to do it alone—we have God, our churches and communities who can help us bless these children. Lord, bless our children as they return to school and teach ushow to guide themin their social and spiritual development.   – By Pablo Diaz.

FEEDBACK ON MEETING 1ST AUG. organised after the stabbing of the young man in Tenby Court 23rd July: the format (group discussion) was to enable people to express their concerns, to talk to other residents as well as local police, local youth services, and people  from projects  supporting young people. This meant that both the stabbing and the later shooting of the same young man on 31st, and all that has been going on here, was not addressed directly. You can view a short video about the meeting on Stella Creasy’s FB page. Watch this space as we will be taking further concrete steps in this community.

UNABLE TO MAKE IT TO MASS? The church offers a service called Mass Link.  At 6pm Sunday Mass, via Skype, we call people who want to listen to the Mass and broadcast the Mass to them over their phones. This service is available for anyone who can't make it to Mass if you are ill or housebound.  If you would like this service, please give your number to the Parish Office and we will ring you every Sunday at 6pm to listen in!
