St. Nicholas

Almighty God, we thank you for your servant Nicholas, Bishop of Myra, whose saint day we celebrate today. His life of generosity and protection of children resulted in being known as the patron saint of children. Our fervent prayer is for every child in the world to be able to go to school and receive an education. Inspire and empower us to follow Nicholas’ example as we struggle to obtain peace in the world. May unity prevail so that those living in nations torn apart by war and fighting will reap the benefits, especially the education of all. We ask this in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
