It s a prayer Jesus taught his disciples when they asked Him how to pray and it begins with a name for God: Father. Activity: Who cares for you? In groups, discuss and mind map the people in our lives who look after us and care for us. What qualities do they have? What do they do for us to show us that they love / care for us? e.g. parents, carers, grandparents, other family members, doctors, nurses, teachers, etc. Caring, friendly, affectionate, patient, role model, etc. Love us, forgive us, care for us, look out for us, protect us, help us feel better, are available for us, make time for us, listen to us, guide us, teach us, etc.) Share with the rest of the class.
