Prayer from the Adults (Rex San Diego, Head Teacher of Ismael Mathay Sr. High School)

Compassionate and loving God, You created a beautiful world for us to share. Give us the desire to live simply, so that our lives show Your generosity. You made us responsible for the earth: guide us so that those who come after us may enjoy Your creation.

Merciful God, hear our prayer for a world that will respect the God-given rights of all. We dedicate ourselves to work for the rights of each human person, especially for those who find life a burden and who know the suffering of hatred, poverty and war. Help us to share the fire of Your peace with all people in all places at all times.

All powerful and ever-living God, in Your abundant love You give us more than we deserve and more than we ask for. Grant us Your mercy in great measure. Forgive us when we have gone against our conscience and give us what we dare not even pray for.

Father, You are creator of the universe and author of all that surrounds our lives. Send us Your Spirit of wisdom as we teach the young. Let our efforts lead us to a deeper knowledge of You, of Your people and of Your world. May we find You, our Creator and Lord, our God and Savior, in all things, Father, Son and Spirit. Amen.
