Grant Me Peace


O Lord, my day's work is over, 
bless all that I have done aright, 
and forgive all that has been wrong,
and for the remaining hours of this day 
grant me the peace and rest that come from Thee alone.
(A Franciscan Prayer)

Tread Lightly


Help me to tread lightly 
when it comes to words 
that can cause pain or disagreement.

God's Word


Thank You, God, for Your Word.
It instructs me how to live.
It brings joy to my days and 
gives me strength when I am weak.
Amen.

School Prayer


O God, who hast made all things beautiful: give me a love of Thy countryside, its lanes and meadows, its woods and streams, and clean open spaces, and let me keep it fresh and unspoilt for those who shall come after me. Amen.
