I am in a sharing extravaganza.
Each morning, at my work place, my school, the day begins with the following prayers.
These prayers are recited by the students before they get immersed into their school work.
The nursery school prayers:
O God! Educate these children. These children are the plants of thine orchard, the flowers of thy meadow, the roses of thy garden. Let the rain fall upon them; let the sun of reality shine upon them with thy love. Let thy breeze refresh them in order that they may be trained, grow and develop, and appear in the utmost beauty. Thou art the giver. Thou art the compassionate.
The secondary school prayer:
O Lord! Make this youth radiant, and confer Thy bounty upon this poor creature. Bestow upon him knowledge, grant him added strength at the break of every morn and guard him within the shelter of thy protection so that he may be freed from error, may devote himself to the service of thy cause, may guide the wayward, lead the hapless, that all may be blessed with thy remembrance and praise. Thou art the Mighty and the powerful.
How do you feel about prayers being recited at schools?
Do you believe the day blessed with such beautiful words help prevent violence at school?
How do you think the tone of the school be influenced by Prayers?
Are you thirsty for more prayers?
Food for thought!
