GOVERNORS' PRAYER

 

Spirit of God

who was with Jesus

at the Jordan before His ministry,

at Mount Tabor before His passion and death,

and who was sent by Him at Pentecost,

be with us now in our special ministry.

 

Guide us with your wisdom

as we seek to take responsibility

for the education of our young people.

May each of us

give generously of our talents

growing to know one another.

Show us how to build a community,

sharing a deep concern and common purpose.

May we find together

the inspiration which is, and always will be,

Jesus Christ, Our Lord.

 

Amen
