Our school days are very busy and we wanted to make sure that we started each day with a moment of reflection and prayer.
I was struck again over the holidays how essential prayer was to Jesus, and how despite an overwhelming workload this was his main priority.
Jesus Prays in a Solitary Place
35 Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. 36 Simon and his companions went to look for him, 37 and when they found him, they exclaimed: “Everyone is looking for you!”
I will be sharing some of the prayers over the coming week, and once all are complete, with the school community as a whole. But here is one to get us started.
