Morning Prayer for 2019-2020
The 7th graders wrote prayers for the morning announcements next year. After votes were calculated we have a winner! Thank you to the teachers who helped vote and to the 7th grade for submitting their heartfelt prayers. Congratulations - Megan Batta, Sady Hirt, Ella Moster, and Hannah Wells. Their prayer is below.
“Eternal Father, who sent your Son to save us from our sins, thank you for blessing us every day! Please help us to always reflect your kindness and mercy. Forgive us when we fail and inspire us to do our best with your help and guidance. In your good and holy name, we pray. Amen”
