Global family prayer resources
We are all part of one big global family. No matter where in the world we live, whether we are rich or poor, we are all brothers and sisters. We are all connected and we are all loved by God.
Use these activities to reflect on and pray for our global family throughout the world.
Family prayer jar
Find an empty clean jar and decorate it with tissue paper, card or pens. On separate slips of paper write the names of all the people in your family, immediate and extended.
Also create some slips for our global brothers and sisters. These could be the names of people you remember from CAFOD appeals, or they could be more general intentions. For example, "All people who are poor", "all people who are hungry", "all people who are sick" etc.
Put all the names into the jar and then, at family prayer times, you can each pull out a name and say a prayer for the person or people listed.
