Shed Some Light for November 19, 2016


As traditional at this time of year, Christ Our Savior Catholic School students are asked to write “Thank You” prayers.  This year, we selected some of the 7th grade class prayers for publication.

Oh Lord, You have done so much for me.  You have given me a great, caring and loving family.  You have given me the nutrients in my food.  In my darkest times, you have helped me.  Most of all, you have given me the enjoyment of life. Amen. Jordan Perdue

Dear Lord, On this day we thank you dearly for all the good things that you have done for us.  On this day, we thank you for giving us an abundance of love.  You give us food, shelter and health.  You truly are our Savior and guidance to the light.  Amen.  Donald Johnson

Dear Lord, You have provided me with all things necessary to live in peace.  I cannot thank you enough.  You have provided me with food to eat, clothing on my back and a home.  You have given me a family and friends-people that I can rely on.  I thank you. Amen.  Jarell Burston

Dear Lord, Thank you so much for the family that I have.  Please bless and protect my family.  Thank you, God, for everything else you do for me.  Thank you for the world you made that we live in.  Thank you for my basketball skills.  Thank you, God, for the Savior that you brought down from heaven to save us.  Thank you, God, and bless me and my family. Amen.  Ismael Hanna

Dear Lord,  Thank you for all that you have given me in my life.  You have given me many gifts and blessings.  I am thankful for my life, family and friends.  I am thankful to have a house, food and a place to live.  I am also thankful to have clothes and shoes.  I don’t take these things for granted because I am so lucky to have them. I am thankful to have a great education and teachers who care about my future.  But most of all, I am thankful for you, dear Lord. Amen.  Joseph Smith

At this time of Thanksgiving, we want to thank the parishioners of our founding parishes for their constant support through their many prayers and monetary donations. We thank you for your monthly   envelope donations to Christ Our Savior Catholic School. May each and every one of you receive an abundance of God’s rich gifts all through the year. We hope that your Thanksgiving is bountiful and blessed.
