Prayer for St. Andrew's School

Prayer for St. Andrew’s School

Written by Fr. Peter, pastor:

Lord, we ask for your blessing and for your guidance upon St. Andrew’s School.

 

We believe in the power of your Word, and we entrust ourselves to you. In times of uncertainty, help us to cling to the cross in the hope of the resurrection.

 

Help us be faithful witnesses of the gospel so that others might encounter the Lord Jesus, just as St. Andrew was a faithful witness to his family and to his community.

 

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

 

Amen.
