Saying Sorry to God

Invite the children to sit in a circle for a moment of quiet.

We’re telling stories about God’s best friend, Moses.

God wants to be best friends with all of us,

but sometimes we’re not a good friend to God.

Sometimes we make God sad by making other people sad.

It’s time to say sorry

for the times that we haven’t been a good friend.

Let’s sing our Sorry Song together.

Saying Sorry to God: Option 1

Spoken: Let’s put our hands on our head.

I wonder if there’s anything we’ve thought this week

that we wish we hadn’t thought? 


Lead the children in placing your hands on head, singing.

With my hands on my head,

I remember the things I’ve thought today,

I remember the things I wish I’d thought a different way.


I’m sorry, I’m sorry, Diddy Disciples 'I'm Sorry' sign

I wish I could start again. Diddy Disciples 'New Start' sign

I’m sorry, I’m sorry, 'I'm Sorry' sign twice

I wish I could start again. 'New Start' sign

Spoken: Let’s put our hands by our mouths.

I wonder if there’s anything we’ve said this week

that we wish we hadn’t said? 


With hands by mouth, singing. . .

With my hands on my mouth,

I remember the things I’ve said today,

I remember the things I wish I’d said a different way.

I’m sorry, I’m sorry, Diddy Disciples 'I'm Sorry' sign

I wish I could start again. Diddy Disciples 'New Start' sign

I’m sorry, I’m sorry, 'I'm Sorry' sign twice

I wish I could start again. 'New Start' sign

Spoken: Let’s cross our hands on our chest.

I wonder if there’s anything we’ve done this week

that we wish we hadn’t done. 


With hands crossed on chest, singing. . .

With my hands on my chest,

I remember the things I’ve done today,

I remember the things I wish I’d done a different way.

I’m sorry, I’m sorry, Diddy Disciples 'I'm Sorry' sign

I wish I could start again. Diddy Disciples 'New Start' sign

I’m sorry, I’m sorry, 'I'm Sorry' sign twice

I wish I could start again. 'New Start' sign
