Lord, thank You for the gift of education in every form.
As our children start a new school year,
may confidence be their foundation,
may grace be their guide and may hope
be their compass toward a bright future.
I pray they have eyes to see
the needs of those around them
and a heart to love well.
May they face each day with positivity
knowing that no matter what come their way,
they do not have to face it alone.
