The St Mary's Headteacher Recruitment Prayer

As you all know by now, Mr Allen will sadly be retiring at the end of the current academic year in July. The task of finding a new Headteacher for our school has begun. The following prayer was written for the school by Rev. Nicholas Pye of St. Paul's Church to help guide and bless those who will be undertaking this great task.


Loving heavenly Father, you raise up people
To take the responsibility of leadership,

And give them the gifts they need.

We pray for the leadership of our school,

Thanking you for all that Mr Allen has given

And praying for the appointment of his successor.

We ask for the presence of your Holy Spirit to guide and bless

Those who have the task of making this appointment

With wisdom and discerning, that your will may be done

In our school as in all things;

Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
