Back To School Prayer

‘For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come understanding and knowledge’ -Proverbs 2: 8


God of my life I welcome this new school year It is your gift to me

This year, Lord Is full of promise and opportunity

Let me waste none of it

This year is full of mystery and the unknown

Help me to face it without fear and anxiety

This year is blessed with beauty and adventure

Make me fully alive to it all.

During this year Keep me thoughtful, prayerful and kind

May I be courteous and helpful to others And not turned in on myself

Keep me from any word or deed That would hurt or belittle or destroy

And may my thoughts, words and actions be pleasing to you Lord.

Lord, bless this day and all the days of this school year

for me and for everyone

Make it a year in which we grow to have the mind of Christ your Son.

Lord Jesus Christ, may we know you more clearly,

love you more dearly and follow you more nearly. Amen
