Item description for Junior High Prayer Services by Themes and Seasons by Gwen Costello...
Overview If you had to choose just one virtue or quality for your junior high class, what would it be? For Gwen Costello it would be Love - the most basic virtue of all - which involves caring, listening, respecting affirming and cooperating; these are the themes of the first fourteen prayer services in this book. Junior High Prayer Services offer students (grades 6 to 8) opportunities to reflect, prayer and respond to one another and to God. Each prayer services addresses problems and concerns that directly affect young people today, but always in the contest of growing in mutual respect and love for themselves and others. Some of the themes are: God made us good; we are what we are; the power of our words; seeing what is beautiful; and much more. These services can be used at any time of the year. The second part of the book contains seasonal prayer services for Advent, Lent, and Easter (including one that can be used for a communal celebration of the sacrament of reconciliation.) Each of these flexible 21 prayer services includes an opening prayer, Scripture reading, guided meditation, group response, silent personal prayer, and group closing prayer. They are easily adapted to different needs and situations. In addition, the book opens with brief sections that offer background information about prayer in general, as well as suggestions, tips techniques, and activities to enhance your class prayer times. Junior High Prayer Services will help your students become comfortable with themselves, reflect on their attitudes toward one another, and respond to their Christian call to follow Jesus who shows them the way to God. An invaluable resource for religion teachers, youth ministers, retreat leaders - everyone who works with young people.
