That more and more kids would feel comfortable to seek help from Chaplain, without warped perceptions of my role; That families would continue to reach out for support when there is a risk of separation (Cause this effect the teenagers as much as the parents sadly); That bullying continues to drop; That I would have wisdom from God on what to say and what not to say in hard conversations; That I would be salt and light for our School staff and support teams

Lord our God, help us to remember those who live in isolated and remote parts of our land. We ask you to strengthen and encourage all whose ministries are supported by The Bush Church Aid Society. Refresh them in times of discouragement and loneliness and call others to stand with them in the task of making Christ known. Grant that, through the ministry of the Word and Sacraments, through caring service and by support for young people, the message of your redeeming love may be proclaimed and accepted by the people of our land. We ask these things through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
