Special Prayers

Prayers we use in our Worship
We open all our acts of worship with our Call to Worship Prayer. We say this prayer to show our worship is beginning. Lighting a candle is a very special part of our worship and reflects our school vision of  walking in His light and living a life which pleases the Lord.

Call to Worship Candle Prayer
The unfolding of your word gives light.
We light this candle to show Jesus is the light of the world.
We celebrate this day together and remember God is here with us.
One of our children created this wonderful picture and told us that this is the picture she thinks of when we say the prayer.
Our Sending out Prayer
It is important for our children and staff to be able to take a message away from our worship time together. At St Andrew's, we make sure we spend some time at the end of our worship thinking about what we have heard in our worship and how God is at the heart of our school. Our Sending Out Prayer signals the end of our worship and gives time for some reflection to consider how we can bear the Fruit of the Spirit and how we can use this to live a life worthy of the Lord.
