If you go to a Catholic or Christian school, you will almost certainly be expected to lead a prayer before class begins. A prayer is a powerful tool that can help us to focus and prepare for the learning ahead. Beginning the day by saying a prayer before class can help set the intention for the day, focusing your thoughts on positivity and goodwill. It can be helpful to take a few moments each morning to pause and reflect on what you would like out of the day ahead. It can also help us to feel more connected to the divine, and to feel more supported and encouraged. In addition, saying a prayer for others can help cultivate feelings of compassion and understanding.
