This activity is part of a series based on The Beatitudes, a series of sayings of Jesus found in the Bible. (Matthew 5:1-12)
Sometimes people do and say things that cause others to suffer, whether they realise it or not. Compassion is about having concern for those that are suffering, and it often leads to action… helping, offering support, caring.
This activity encourages pupils to consider those who are suffering because of their circumstances or sickness, and to express their thoughts or prayers.
Prayer space hosts will need to be aware that some pupils may use this activity to reflect on their own suffering, and therefore may need support.
