Through the intercession of Blessed Nicholas Postgate, Lord, give us the strength so that we are guided by your example. Give me the conviction to believe in myself. Give me the confidence I need to be the best I can be to myself and others.
Lord Jesus, you have enriched our lives in many ways. You give us the wisdom to recognise that if children live with praise they learn appreciation and if they live with acceptance they learn to love, if they live with fairness they learn justice and if children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.
Show us how best to use the talents you have given us. Help us to use all opportunities wisely that we may give in service to others the good gifts we have received from you.
We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.
