SECTION XVII
DAILY PRAYERS AND THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE


In keeping with the basic philosophy of De La Salle High School, each day and each class begins with a prayer said together. Each day ends with a communal prayer as well.

 

— MORNING PRAYER —

Leader:
Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

All:
I worship You, O my God, and I acknowledge you as my God and my Maker. Teach me, I beg You, to know You, to love You, to serve You and to open my heart and hear Your voice in my life. I offer You my day and I resolve to spend it in Your love and the service of my neighbor. I ask You to bless our school and all our endeavors. Amen.

 

— CLASS PRAYER —

Leader:
Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

All:
Lord, open my heart to Your voice in my life so that all my actions are for the love of You.


— AT THE END OF THE DAY —

Leader:
Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

All:
My God, I thank You for having given me life and for having made me to know, love and serve You all the days of my life and for eternity. I thank You for my faith, my school, and for the school day that I am completing. I beg Your pardon for my offenses and omissions. I resolve, with the help of Your grace, to open my heart to Your voice and to constantly listen for Your call in my life. Be with me as I live out the rest of today. May I do so in Your holy grace and good favor. Amen.
