Good Shepherd Prayer

St. Peter’s Director of Children’s Formation, Anna Hurdle shared the following Prayer for Good Shepherd Sunday, written by adults, Katie Semmler Nelson, Maggie Curme, Jordan Tadlock, and Logan Singletary, when they were children enrolled in the Level III Atrium of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS).  Their prayer is used regularly by The National Association of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. This year at St. Peter’s, it was offered by the Celebrant as the concluding Collect during the Prayers of the People. Later, five CGS girls participated in Solemn Communion at the Sanctuary Rail following their Solemn Communion Retreat on April 21.

Shine your light on us, Oh Lord, so we may worship you in happiness.
Oh, Lord our Shepherd, lead all your flock to peace.
Guide us through our journey with love and life,
so we may love you wholeheartedly
until one day when there is one flock and one sheepfold. Amen.
