La Retraite Prayer Life

Over this academic year, we will be preparing to celebrate the school's Feast Day of the Sacred Heart, and focusing on the quote by the Prophet Micah that forms a central part of the school's Mission Statement:

To act justly

To love mercy and

To walk humbly with God.

 

La Retraite School Prayer
O, Jesus, through 
Your Immaculate Heart
I offer You my day;
my work, prayers, my joys;
my time with friends;
my time of rest;
my difficulties, problems 
and distress,
I offer these my gifts to join
with Your gift of love of all.
Grant Your blessing upon all
in our school community.
Amen.
 
Micah 6:8
2 January 2018, 8 January 2018
He has shown you, O Mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly
with your God.
Amen.
 
St Therese of Lisieux

Jesus, help me to simplify my life by learning
what You want me to be and becoming that person.
Amen.
 
The Knots Prayer
29 January 2018, 5 February 2018
Dear God:
Please untie the knots
that are in my mind,
my heart and my life.
Remove the have nots,
the can nots and the do nots
that I have in my mind.
Erase the will nots, may nots,
might nots that may find
a home in my heart.
Release me from the could nots,
would nots and should nots
that obstruct my life.
And most of all,
Dear God,
I ask that you remove from my mind,
my heart and my life
all of the ‘am nots’
that I have allowed
to hold me back
especially the thought
that I am not good enough.
Amen.

As we walk towards Easter and your Cross, we take solace, Lord, that you know our every thought and wish and dream. Help us, Lord, not to know what is wrong, for deep in our hearts, we know that already; rather, Lord, we beg of you the courage and strength of will to choose the right thing.
Help us, Lord, when we see a neighbour in distress to whom we know we must be kind, and yet we have hearts filled with indifference, coldness, and hate. Lord, we beg of you the courage and strength of will to choose the right thing. Help us, Lord, when we see the damage our actions have caused to the beautiful world you have given us, yet we continue through lethargy to pollute and destroy the world around us. Lord, we beg of you the courage and strength of will to choose the right thing.

In our walking - God.
In our talking - God.
In our life - God.
In our strife - God.
In our seeing - God.
In our being - God.
In our days - God.
In our ways - God.
In our night - God.
In our plight - God.
In our reason - God.
In this Lenten Season - God.
Amen.

Lord, please help me to remember the power of my words, attitudes, moods,
and gestures on my family, friends, and all those around me.
Amen.
