Our Prayer for Principals and Vice Principals

On this morning of World Principals' Day, we give thanks for their leadership and joyful service to our schools. 

As our principals/vice principals contemplate the heavy responsibilities they bear, we ask you, Lord, to uphold them. Give them guidance and courage to lead their schools. Give them knowledge and wisdom to help address the struggles and problems their community faces. Give them the hope of your resurrection that Easter brings.

Gracious God, reassure our principals/vice principals and place within their hearts reminders of your Almighty presence. Please help us, as students, parents, and staff, to continually keep them in our own prayers. May we all call upon you to give our principals/vice principals strength and expertise, that they may lead all of us into a better, and safer tomorrow. We pray this, through Christ our Lord, Amen.
