There Is Power in Your Prayer

It's our ministry here as Catholic educators to embody our faith in everything we do. We model and teach children to form a personal relationship with Jesus and build a foundation for lifelong learning and discipleship. One of the most impactful ways we demonstrate this is through our Religion classes. St. Joseph School-Fullerton students take Religion courses at every grade level. 

Recently, student Amani T. had the opportunity to express her faith in her Religion class by writing her own prayers. Writing your own prayer can be a powerful and beneficial practice for Catholic students. It can help to deepen your understanding of your faith, as well as help you to develop a more personal relationship with God. Writing your own prayer allows you to express yourself in unique and meaningful ways while also allowing you to explore the depths of your faith. Additionally, it can provide an opportunity for self-reflection and spiritual growth. 

We share a few of Amani's beautiful prayers:

By Amani T., SJS-Fullerton Fifth Grade

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for the gift of salvation. You died to save us and give us new life. During your passion, help us to pray and reflect on how you were feeling. 

God of earth, God of creation, lover of people, forever forgiving. Let us to your light in the presence of heaven. 

Patron of families, St. Joseph, pray for all fathers today. St. Patrick, help all slaves that are far from home.

In Your Name, Amen.

Dear God,

I pray that our new year is filled with love, joy, hope, peace, happiness, and Jesus in our hearts. Amen.
