Spiritual Life

In many ways, Spiritual Life is not something that is a separate category at St. Paul. Our motto is, “God in all things…” and indeed, everything we do is infused with and empowered by God’s presence. Everything we have at the school is given by God's hand, and everything we do is intended to honor Him in return. Our central pillar is "Passion for Christ," and our highest goal is that our students would strive academically, athletically, artistically, and in all their pursuits to be conformed more perfectly into the image of Christ.

Ways to get involved with St. Paul Spiritual Life


Moms in Prayer

Join fellow St. Paul moms on Tuesday mornings from 8:05-8:30 a.m. in the C.S. Lewis Library. Please come for as little or as much as you can, with little ones in tow, just to listen or to pray. Spend time praying for our children, our teachers, our community, and our world.

Dads' Fellowship Bible Study

Calling all St. Paul Dads! Billy Cerveny will be teaching a 4-week study entitled The Soul Of A Man: The Biblical Call of Manhood. This will be a great time to get into God’s Word, have some great discussions, and connect with other men at St. Paul. Details: Thursday mornings from 7 - 8:30 a.m., February 21 - March 14 at St. Paul. RSVP to billy@redbirdnashville.com.

Family Worship Night

We invite the whole family to worship with us on Tuesday, February 12, from 6 - 7 p.m. for a night of music and prayer. We will hear from Alex Florez, St. Paul Director of Spiritual Life, on the mission and theme verse from this year, as well as pray for each homeroom. We look forward to starting this new tradition during Spiritual Life Week!

Prayer Requests

A note from Alex Florez, Director of Spiritual Life:

I have seen the power of prayer at work in our school community. Whether in crying out to God for His help or by praising God for His goodness, He invites us to share our inner lives with Him. I invite you to follow the link below and share your prayer request. You will have the opportunity to select your privacy settings, and even stay anonymous. May God bless you richly as you bring your heart to Him in prayer.


Scripture on Prayer

I have selected some scripture about prayer. I hope they encourage you in your life as they have mine.

Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. James 5:14-16

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 1 John 5:14

In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. Psalm 5:3

We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy. Daniel 9:18b

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Ephesians 6:18 

Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. James 5:13

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:2

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. Romans 8:26

Answer me when I call to you, my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; have mercy on me and hear my prayer. Psalms 4:1
