Dear God,

Thank you for this wonderful school and for everyone in this community. Thank you for all of the wonderful gifts you have given us. I ask that we pray for everyone to be safe, and healthy. I also ask to pray for anyone who is struggling, that they may overcome these difficulties to feel better and confident in themselves. Thank you Father for hearing our prayers and requests, in Jesus' name.
