During this learning time, all participants will be invited to think of and name someone they know who is feeling unwell. While developing a sense of empathy the participants will be asked to describe how they might be feeling if they had to be instead of that sick person. This will, in turn, lead them to think of ways they can support that person, one of which would be that of praying for him/her own needs at this particular moment.

Equipment: Band-aid or plasters , toys, biros or coloured markers

 How would you be feeling?

 What do you think you would really wish for, apart from      getting well back soon?

6. With the help of an adult, get a fabric plaster and write on it the name of this person who at the moment is feeling sick.

7. Now, hold the fabric plaster with the name of the person written on it dearly in your hands.

8. Close your eyes and say a prayer in your heart for this person. While praying that this person will get better soon, you can also pray to God to give this person something else which you think he/she might wish for.
Example:- Dear God I pray for ____________________  I ask you not only to heal _________________but please I ask you also to show him/her that she/he is loved.

9. Now you can stick the fabric plaster with one of your favourite toys so that it will remind you:

b)  to call or visit and spend quality time with him/her.
c)  to pray for the wishes and the needs of this person
