Prayer

Autumn Term 2019

A prayer for the start of a new academic year for a Chaplain:

Heavenly Father, I commit into your care all that I have planned for this coming term: Use me to bring your kingdom within my school/college community:

Give me eyes to see where you are needed most; give me ears to listen for the prompting of your Spirit; give me words that will bring healing, wholeness and your kingdom to those within my care.

Change my plans and me, so that we keep in step with you and reveal your love and kingdom.

Amen.

A prayer for the start of the new term for our schools and colleges:

A new year, a new start.

Dear Lord help us to celebrate the achievements of last year and focus on smashing them this year!

Help us to let go of the disappointments and know that we have the ability to change our future with your help;

Most of all Lord:

Show us the truth about ourselves: that we are wonderfully made and created in your image.

Amen.

Many of our school and college chaplains work alone. Please pray for them to hear our Lord prompting them in their daily work and calling.

Another exciting way to get involved with us is to PRAY.

We are not in this work alone and neither can we ever do it all alone.

All those called to work amongst our young people and the wider school communities as Chaplains need prayer.

All of the interventions/events/people need our prayers.

Will you join us as someone who will intercede and petition our Father in heaven? Will you rejoice with us for those clear and amazing ways in which He answers our prayers?

If you can do so, please sign up to our Intercessors list and we will keep you informed of any urgent prayer requests. Thank you.
