VESS Prayer

Lord look lovingly
on our System gathered here.
During this meeting
as we discuss issues of importance to our schools
help us to be guided by your Spirit.
May we be wise in our discernment
balanced in our judgement
fair in our decisions
and visionary in our planning.
Though we may, at times,
have differing views
May we listen to one another
and foster collegiality amongst our members.
May we always be mindful
in our words and actions
of what is best for all children
in our schools.
We ask this through Christ our Lord
