DAY 2

MORNING PRAYER

Today’s prayer was written by an École St. Mary High School student. It is about hope.  

Dear God,
You loved us enough to send Jesus to live as a human.
He taught us to reflect Your glory,
and his sacrificial death on the cross for our sins
taught us to believe, hope and endure all things.
Thank you for helping us to see how love can change the world
Through Christ our Lord,
Amen
