A short prayer for Remembrance Sunday
Pick an eco-system that is close to your heart and pray with positive intention for that place. Perhaps focus your prayer on a plant, an animal or what this place means to you – and thank God for his wisom and grace in creation for this. Pray to ask how you can make a difference to help the niche you’re focusing on – and in doing so, you can help to be a positive force of change.
Each individual has their own battles and challenges, and is known and loved by God. Pray simple prayers of blessing over the lives of those around you and make people watching a prayer activity.

There’s a need for clear communication when we need help – be that in sickness or adversity. We and those that we care for all need help at some time or another at some time in our lives and we need to be able to communicate our need with those around us.
In order to grow to be strong and healthy seeds need good soil, feeding and watering. In the same way children need comfort and love in order to develop into the people God made them to be. As we plant seeds we pray that children will have all they need to grow well.

Considering prayer: make it a personal conversation, seeing God as father. After all, a father figure is someone to trust; a father will support us in what we need. Have you thought of how you pray? God knows what is in our hearts and minds – there is no wrong way to pray!
Are there specific things you want to persist in asking for? Is there something you look at several times a day like a mirror, window, computer screen or phone? Write a note and stick it where you’ll see it most as a reminder to pray.
