Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the LORD:
“I will sing to the LORD, for he is highly exalted. Both horse and driver he has hurled into the sea. “The LORD is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation.
He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him. The LORD is a warrior; the LORD is his name. Pharaoh’s chariots and his army he has hurled into the sea.
The best of Pharaoh’s officers are drowned in the Red Sea. The deep waters have covered them; they sank to the depths like a stone. Your right hand, LORD, was majestic in power. Your right hand, LORD, shattered the enemy. Exodus 15:1-6
A Morning Prayer
There is none like you O Lord, and there are no works like your works! You have given us the gift of reading and writing, the gifts of athletics, theater, and musical ability. As the your
people Israel at Mt. Sinai, we and the whole world bow down before you O Lord. We seek glorify your name in our work today. For you are great and do wondrous things here, you
alone are God. We cannot come before you O Lord, unless we are honest with ourselves about who we are, about the mistakes we make, and about how poorly we care for others. Like the Israelites, we SAY we will obey you, but seem to quickly forget our promise. When we see your beautiful holiness, we also see our own lack of holiness. You, oh God, are our pillar of fire and cloud. Today, we acknowledge both who and whose we are. Forgive us, Father.
Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the wrongdoing of your people. You do not stay angry forever, but delight in showing mercy. You will again have compassion on us; you will stamp out our sins under your feet, and throw all our sins into the depths of the sea. You will be faithful to us as you showed your faithfulness to Moses long ago.
Work and Worship
Each morning we begin our day with an all school prayer time, a small sample of which is
written above. We believe our work is sacred, set apart for God, so our work is our worship.
