Dear St. Francis School Families, November 5, 2018
4th Grade Prayer
You have blessed us in so many beautiful ways each and every day!
Thank you for providing us with all that we need.
Help us to remember to treat each other with love and respect. Amen
Please join us in prayer for our 4th Grade Class
We all need to seek God in prayer with our joys, worries, and thankful moments. Thank you for being Prayer Partner for our school. This week we will be lifting up our 4th Grade Class in prayer ~ Cayman, Evan, Bethany, Sienna, Reese, Darien, Jack, Rowan, Max, Shelby, Atlanta, Vincent, Jordyn, Rosemary, Kyle, and Gavin.
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
