Daily Prayer

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


Loving Father, I gather in Your presence.


I invite stillness into my heart.

May I breathe in Your peace and breathe out all my worries.


Holy Spirit, speak to me through this time in prayer so that I can hear God’s voice in my heart.

Jesus our brother,

We thank you for giving us your peace. Help us to spread peace at home and at school by loving and caring for one another.

Help us spread peace by listening to each one other, even when we don’t agree. Help us to spread peace by sharing our time with those who are lonely and who need a friend.


We pray this in the name of love, Jesus Christ,

Amen
