Daily Prayer

​Dear Jesus,

Be with us today and help us in all that we say and do.
Help us to be better people, and to put the needs of others before our own. We pray that we will work hard and use the gifts you have given us to make the world a better place. We make this prayer through Christ our Lord,
Amen
