Thursday 26th January: Prayer to Start the Day

The theme of this school week is: Holocaust.

The Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Prayer

from the Holocaust Memorial Day prayer book.

God of all human experience, when one life is lost, it is as if the whole world is destroyed. Help us to be alert to the injustices of history and of our present. Where life is abused, unwelcomed, excluded or destroyed equip us to challenge and bring change.

God of all human hope, when one life is saved, the entire world is saved. Help us to fight for life beyond injustice, genocide and even death itself. Though we ask how we can go on after our hearts have been broken, may we find strength and joy in the future unknown.

We ask these prayers in the name of the one who challenges and calls us, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Our Lady Queen of Peace pray for us.

St Joseph pray for us

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
