Prayer during testing term times
Litany of trust at the start of term January 2001
Lord, we stand at the threshold of a new term, a time of uncertainty, a time of challenge. WE don’t know what will happen, how we will manage personally. But we do know that we are not alone because we have colleagues around us, the energy of young people in our school and within each of us we have a spirit that can rise above all difficulties.
So, your response to these petitions is: We will find your energy and spirit
Lord, in the unity of our team work Response
In the energy and joy of our pupils Response
Through the change and challenge of this term Response
Through the tensions ahead Response
Through our leadership Response
Through our creativity in problems Response
When we run low on energy Response
When we are still and alone Response
When lessons go well Response
When we test for covid Response
When we disagree Response
Lord, stay with us in the uncertainties of this term and walk with our pupils every day. Help us to look after each other, teach and learn well and emerge from this year wiser and more united in the spirit of the Gospel.
