Prayer Offered for April 18, 2022

Merciful and gracious God, we believe that each one of us is a spark of Your Divine Light, filled with the potential to emanate Your Spirit of love, joy, empathy, and compassion for the common good and for the building up of our world. As we transmit the best of ourselves to future generations in the ministry of education, help us to educate each individual about the dignity and worth of their person. May we as a society commit to providing all children with the resources—spiritual, psychological, and ethical, as well as physical and intellectual—enable them to reach their highest potential. May we inspire them to contribute their gifts and talents to creating communities of justice, truth, forgiveness, and peace. In these challenging times, give us the courage to witness to the possibility of hope and transformation in our anxious and suffering world. We ask this in Your name.—AMEN.
