Support Our Next Century

Daily Prayer

Today's prayer is by Josh Tilottson (Mrs. Cotterall's Advisory)

As a faith and learning community we begin our day,

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Lord God we praise and thank you for the gift of this day and for the night’s rest.

Dear God, help us to see you in the world today, in our busy lives. Help us to find You in all people.

Give us the strength to persevere when times are tough, when we feel abandoned. Let us know that You are there, even when we may not know it.

We pray for our Gr. 12 students that they may have faith in You during this time of transition into University, and that You may lead them to make the right choices.

We pray for friends and family members who are sick, especially those with cancer or other life-threatening illnesses. We pray for those grieving the loss of a loved one.

Be with us Lord throughout this day, in our teaching, learning and all our activities.May everything we do and say today be guided by gospel values; by the way Jesus would want us to treat one another as we Celebrate the Value and Dignity of Each Person, and Nurture the Development of the Whole Person.

Blessed Edmund Rice….. Pray for Us.

Live Jesus in our Hearts…Forever.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
