A Team Prayer and the Corporal Works of Mercy
Corporal Works of Mercy: The Corporal Works of Mercy are 7 specific ways in which we can help our "neighbors" by showing them God's love and mercy:
To feed the hungry;
To give drink to the thirsty;
To clothe the naked;
To shelter the homeless;
To visit the sick;
To visit the imprisoned; To bury the dead.
Father, we learn of Jesus healing the sick and you teach us the Corporal Works of Mercy so that we can live out the lessons of Christ in today's world. Help us to do this as a team through the ideas we have discussed and the actions we have planned. May our compassion for others help us to bring Your love into the world. Grant that we may have a fun and safe week of practice & games and bless our efforts to show your mercy and love to the world.
