Thursday, June 8th



Today’s prayer was written by a student at École St. Mary High School. It is about facing the challenges of life.   

God our Father,

There are many difficulties and challenges in life,

and we see or experience more of them each day we live.

Give us the power of your Holy Spirit

that we may have courage and determination,

and may live in such a way that we encourage one another.

Enable us to transform whatever is negative,

and remain positive in attitude throughout our lives.

Lighten our darkness and keep us safe.

Through Christ our Lord,
