Prayers

Life of St Edmund's Prayer

StEdmundimage



Heavenly Father, as we gather in prayer, we ask for the guidance and inspiration of our school patron,
St Edmund, who led a life based on Gospel values and the belief in the power of God.


We pray that like Edmund, each of us will personally come to believe that,
“I can do all things with the help of God who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13)
and that together our school community may grow ever closer to you and to one another.


May our school be a place that reaches out to the wider community
and is mindful of the environment around us.


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

Amen
