Week A

Stage 4

Daily Prayer

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Loving Father, I gather in Your presence.

I invite stillness into my heart.

May I breathe in Your peace and breathe out all stress and worry.

Holy Spirit, speak to me through this time in prayer so that the ear of my heart may understand God’s will.

Cherish and Challenge:

Cherish: When have I felt believed in and supported? Who has stood by me in times of difficulty?

Challenge: Where can I see God believing in and supporting me through those moments and those people? Am I aware of how He supports me unconditionally through my experiences and the people in my relationships?


God of reckless love,

When I was Your foe, still Your love fought for me. For this I thank you God.

When I felt no worth, You paid it all for me. For this I thank you God.

There is no shadow You wont light up coming after me. For this I thank you God.

There is no mountain You won't climb up, coming after me. For this I thank you God.

There is no wall You won't kick down, no lie You won't tear down coming after me. For this I thank you God.

For Your overwhelming, never ending, reckless love I thank you God.

We pray this in the name of love, Jesus Christ,

Questions to support my thinking

Activity too hard?

If you are not sure about these activities, use YouTube to find other Dreamtime stories so you can better understand the Indigenous mode of storytelling. Think about stories you may know from your own childhood and whether there are aspects of those stories which are very specific to your cultural heritage.

Activity too easy?

If you found this interesting, use a less well-known Dreamtime story about creation which you have not heard before. You can also listen to Aunty Beryl Carmichael explain why Dreamtime stories are of such significance to the Aboriginal culture at https://dreamtime.net.au/dreaming/story-list/.
