In the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Listen as we pray for understanding and peace:
God of love,
You teach us that there is
wisdom in peacefulness;
wisdom in gentleness and balance;
wisdom in joy;
wisdom in hope;
wisdom in patience;
wisdom in truth.
Give us courage to work for peace in our school:
Between friends who are arguing;
When the lonely need a friend;
When wrongs need correcting;
When other students are being picked upon and bullied;
Loving God grant us this strength, in Jesus name we pray.
This staff appreciation week we keep in prayer all who gift themselves to us through service in our schools.
We close with the Serenity Prayer.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference
In peace we continue our day in the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
