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.

 

AMEN
