|Prayer of a Principal|
Keep me, O Lord from every evil word
From worry, fear, idleness, hasty temper,
Useless complaint and falsehood.
Make my heart pure and my lips clean,
Give me to share your joys
And let my words and deeds
Be full of courage and good cheer,
Lest I should bear false witness
to your loving care.
Give me strength sufficient
For this day’s duties
And enough besides to keep me kind.
|Prayer of the Teachers|
God, you are my patience, my strength ,
My light and my counsel. ,
in what I have to say to my pupils and Help me to stand for the hard
You make them responsive to my word.
Be with them and with me at all times
Give me for their sake a share in the
Gift of your Spirit, wisdom,
Understanding, counsel, courage, knowledge,
filial devotion to You and a
Fear of displeasing You.
Increase my faith and give me zeal to do Your will.
|Prayer of the Students|
O God, give me clean hands,
Clean words and clean thoughts,
Help me to stand for the hard
right against the easy wrong.
Teach me to work hard and play fair
Forgive me when I am unkind
and forgive others who are unkind to me.
Keep me ready to help others, and
Send me chances to do good every day
We want to know, to love and serve
St. Lawrence’s we‘re proud to be
We want to shine in every way
