Prayer and Petition

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
present your requests to God ~ Philippians 4:6

I have read this verse many times, but only recently have I begun to really understand it. Like many people, I have often relied on myself to "get things done." However, it has been humbling to see the way that God is working in our community. At STCCS, we have made a conscious decision to bring everything to God in prayer.  We pray for our students, our families, our committees, our board, our staff, our community, our enrolment and anything else that comes our way. We have been blessed as a result. Most of you know that last year we decided to pray for 105 students.  I can honestly say that I worried about reaching that number and became anxious as I relied on what I could do, not what God could do.  Thankfully, it is what God can do that actually matters.  We had 105 students registered at our school when we open the doors in September.  That is just one tangible way that God has blessed us.  As a school, we will continue to bring everything to God and I am excited to see what His plans are for our school this year.
