It's that time of year!
God of Creation, as this new school year begins, we ask that You:
Give our children open minds and hearts and let them encounter new, strange, and wonderful ideas.
Let them laugh and play and learn and explore.
Fill them with dreams for their future and the confidence to chase them.
Surround them with adults who support & help them to be the strongest versions of themselves.
Help them to accept setbacks and strive to overcome challenges.
Keep their bodies and their spirits safe as they go about the business of being children.
We pray that this school year will be one of transformation and that all students will go
from strength to strength. Amen.
