Creator of all people,

Help us to understand that everybody is different. Let us realise that nobody sees things in the same way. Guide us so that we can respect these differences, Lord.

People in this world have many different religions.

You want us to learn from other people’s beliefs, not despise them, or feel we should exclude people because they do not think the same things that we do.

We should treat people who are different from us with respect.

Help us to do this, Lord.

Thank you for making us all different:

Different languages,

Different religions,

Different appearances,

Different ideas.

You have made us unique, but we should not be enemies because of this.

Just because we are different, this does not mean we should be separate.

Help us to be one global family, Lord.

Amen.

(Y6)

We thank you lord that there are so many differences in the world.

Help us to understand the different religions in the world and help us not to mock or make fun of people because of their beliefs.

Everyone is different and we should accept that.

If people were the same then the world would be boring and everyone would be the same.

Please help me to appreciate those who are different.

Help me to understand everyone and help me to learn about different religions.

Please help those who fight just because people don’t like other religions.

Help us to unite as a family and stop fighting.

Amen

(Y6)

God our Father, creator of religions.

Help us to love and respect others,

To learn from others and also things around us.

Make us aware of variety and cultures,

Help us to respect that.

Open our lives to the objects around us.

We thank you for all the different places:

The London eye, tombs and Big Ben.

Make us realise that we are one global family.

We can learn from celebrations happening around the world,

Let us understand that.

We can learn from different foods,

Let us experience it.

We can also learn from the world,

Let us explore it.

Dear Mary,

In the Blessed month of May, I pray to you.

Thank you for diversity of differences and for variety.

Thank you for different religions, and making every one unique.

Thank you for different people, and every one being special in their own way.

Please help me to respect these different people more.

To treat the people different from me with kindness and truth.

And to always treat them with respect:

No matter what faith or religion they are.

Amen

(Y6)

Dear Lord

Creator of a loving global family,

Come help me to be respectful person to others.

Creator of a loving global family,

Thank you for making us all different and not the same.

Creator of a loving global family,

Help me to show respect and politeness to others and call us to live in peace.

Also thank you for making us with different personalities and different religions.

Please guide us through a peaceful and caring life as I experience different cultures.

Amen

Dear Almighty Creator,

Help us not to be overwhelmed by the powerful fear that embraces us of being different. Guide us so that everyone can live life to the fullest of being different and how we can learn from that.

Thank you for the love and respect you have given us to understand that everyone is different. Thank you for making us different so that we can enjoy our lives and to have an adventure.

Help us to acknowledge and understand our differences so that we can help and learn from each other. Help us to show our true personalities and not to be insecure about how we look or how we dress. At the end of it all we should be ourselves whatever the cost.

Amen

(Y6)

Father in Heaven,

Thank you for the beautiful diverse world that you have given us,

Because without different people we would never learn respect.

Help us to see the world as one family all created in your image.

Let us see through people’s appearance because being a good person comes from the inside.

May we respect the beliefs of other people and treat them fairly.

No one is the same because we all have unique talents, but no one is different because we all deserve respect.

Amen

(Y6)

Dear God,

Thank you for making people passionate and caring about their religion. Also, thank you for giving us a choice of religion and making it fun to learn about different religions and for our religion and strong Catholic faith. We are sorry for times when we are disrespectful about other religions. Help us to make friends with people from other religions so that no-one feels left out.

Amen
