School Prayer

O Lord Jesus, be with me all through today to help me to live as I ought to live.

Be with me at my lessons, so that I may grow in knowledge and never give up any task, no matter how hard and difficult it is, until I have tried my best.

Be with me at my games, so that, whether I win or lose, I may play fair, and if I win I may not boast, and if I lose I may not make excuses.

Be with me in my pleasure, so that I may enjoy your gifts and never use them selfishly or to hurt others.

Be with me in my home, so that I may be kind and considerate, and that I may try to make the work of others easier and not harder.

Be with me in the streets, so that I may be a credit to my school and to those who love me and to myself

Be with me in my disappointments and sufferings, so that I may have strength to overcome my problems and accept my pain with courage and cheerfulness.

Help me to be the kind of boy you want me to be.

This I ask for your love's sake. Amen.
