Here are some of the prayers the students posted as they left:
"Dear God, Please help me with peace and not to fight with my brother. Amen."
"Dear God, Please help me be more meek when I get complimented. Amen."
And then some got a little more sincere and thoughtful:
"Oh Lord, thank you for all you do. During these times, please help me stay patient. I love playing and hanging out with my friends, but sometimes I get ahead of myself. Thank you. Amen."
"Dear Holy Spirit, Please help me to work on being meek. I am shy and gentle, but I need to work on directing attention toward you. You have given me so much; you need recognition. Amen."
Most days, I love my job for simple reasons like getting to spend time reading responses like these. (I should also include the 7th graders responses about how to be a Saint, but that would take too long because almost all 20 of those are worth posting, so I will spare you.)
Have a great night!
