Prayer for the New School Year
God of wisdom and might,
we praise you for the wonder of our
being, for mind, body and spirit.
Be with our children as they begin
a new school year.
Bless them and their teachers and staff.
Give them strength and grace as their
bodies grow; wisdom and knowledge to
their minds as they search for
understanding; and peace and zeal
to their hearts.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
