Waiting on the Lord (Lent 3)

Abraham knew that God was faithful and would do what he had promised but he had to be patient and wait for God’s timing.

Many schools are now gradually reopening – it can be hard to watch some children able to return and be with their friends while others cannot. For some they may be back at school but longing for their days at school to return to normal.

Why not have the children take some time to write or draw what they would like their school life to look like. Bring what is shared to God in prayer and help them to ask for patience while they wait. You could keep the writings or drawings as a prayer focus and a reminder to trust in God. If your children do not attend school, they could also complete this activity thinking about other areas of their lives, such as church and other activities which have changed during the pandemic.
