PRAYERS & SCRIPTURE

Look upon us, O Lord, and grant us the

grace of your Holy Spirit.

Where there is weakness, give us strength;

where there is disagreement, give us tolerance;

where there is misunderstanding, give us patience;

where there is hurt, give us the courage to forgive and the

grace to accept forgiveness.

Be present in your school here and in all places;

bless our work, and everything that is undertaken by our

Christian sisters and brothers,

for the furtherance of your kingdom of unity and love, peace

and justice.

We ask this in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Amen
