A Prayer for School Leaders
Lord Jesus Christ
You yourself were a leader,
Now you call us to lead our schools through uncertainty.
May we do so, relying on your strength.
You yourself were a learner,
Now you call us to learn new ways of working.
May we do so, seeking after your wisdom.
You yourself were a teacher,
Now you call us to teach away from our classrooms.
May we do so, enabling understanding just as you did.
You yourself were a listener,
Now you call us to listen to the needs of our families.
May we do so, discerning how best to show your love.
You yourself gathered people to you,
Now you call us to gather our communities from a distance.
May we do so, embodying your compassion.
You yourself took the time to rest,
Now you call us to rest our tired souls and bodies.
May we do so, trusting in your unending faithfulness.
As you led, learnt, taught, listened, gathered and rested,
May we too follow in your footsteps,
Knowing that you see us, hear us, understand us and walk with us.
Lord Jesus Christ.
Our School Prayer
This is our school
Let peace dwell here
Let the rooms be full of contentment
Let love abide here
Love of one another
Love of mankind
Love of life itself
And love of God
Let us remember that as many hands build a house
So many hearts make a school
