From Mrs. Rhodes

Prayer for Civility


Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Where uncivil words prevail, show me how to model love.

Help me remember the God-given dignity of all and invite others to do the same.

Show me how to build bridges and not walls

and see first what unites us rather than how we diverge.

Let me seek to understand before asking to be understood.

Give me a listening heart filled with empathy and compassion.

May I be clear in sharing my own position

and respectful and civil in describing those of others.

Let me never tolerate hateful ideas.

May I invite all to charity and love.

Lord, help me to imitate your compassion and mercy.

Make me an instrument of your peace.

Amen.

We started this prayer as a new afternoon prayer on Oct. 1 and will continue through the election. There are so many lessons for all of us in here. Sacred Heart is accredited by the state of Kansas, which requires us to have a researched based anti-bullying program. We are excited to include Peace Week as an addition to our plan. Of course, we know that Jesus is the best example of how we are to treat people and that our vision "Preparing our minds for the future and souls for eternity" helps us make better decisions every day!
