God, today may You be ever present in our hearts and minds, so that we may lead our school and govern ourselves wisely. We pray that through the act of service, we may do Your work and follow Your will for us. Let us not forget that there is a purpose behind us being brought together and given this opportunity. You graced us with intelligence, the ability to serve, compassion, and so much more; may we be fortunate that we have the privilege of using these gifts to help and strengthen both our community and school. May Your image be ever present in our minds and our actions a reflection of You.

This prayer was shared by an NDA 8th grader during a student council meeting to plan our support for Risen Christ Catholic School.
