Monday, May 18, 2020 Morning Announcements

Good morning OLA! Today is Monday, May 18, 2020! Please stand for our morning prayer as we remember we are in the presence of God. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Oh God of all beginnings and endings, we praise and we thank you for the gift of this school year. It has been a time filled with grace and blessings, with challenges and opportunities, joys and sorrows. The days have passed quickly, O Lord. The weeks, the months, the seasons, the holidays, and the holy days. The exams, vacations, breaks, and assemblies, all have come forth from your hand. While we trust that your purposes have always been at work each day, sometimes it seems difficult to understand and appreciate just what you have been up to in our school. Give us the rest and refreshment we need this summer. Let our efforts of the past year bear fruit. Bring all of our plans to a joyful conclusion, and bless us according to your will. With the fulfillment of our summer hopes and dreams, watch over us in the weeks of rest ahead and guide each day as you have done this past year. Help us to return to school with a new spirit and a new energy. May we continue to grow in age, wisdom, knowledge, and grace all the days of our lives. Amen. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Please remain standing for the pledge: I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
