School Prayer

Dear Lord,

We thank you for the chance to gather
together today. We ask that you bless us in
our work and in our play. May we grow in
wisdom, knowledge and understanding the
wonders of our universe, while remembering
our real purpose in life: to love God and to
serve others.

May we treat each other with
respect as we would like to be
treated ourselves and may we
give freely of our time and efforts
for the good of all.

Let us remember that we are a family; we ask
God's blessings on all those in our families,
including parents, teachers, secretaries,
educational assistants, custodians, and noon
hour supervisors.

Finally, let us remember that this day is
special and will never come again. Let us
make the most of today as we grow in your
image, dear Lord.
