Welcome to “In His Praise”
A Prayer for Our Schools
O Holy God, the time has come for school to begin. As the children begin their studies, we ask a blessing upon them.
Bless all who will teach and interact with our children in the coming days, weeks and months. Give them wisdom to find inspiration for each child. Give them energy, creativity and love that will make their work a blessing to our children.
O Lord of Life and Love, bless all school administrators that they may be faithful stewards of the resources entrusted to their care. Make them fair and merciful, able to do their crucial work with a spirit of grace and compassion.
O God, bless each parent, grandparent, guardian and caregiver; that each one would seek opportunities to grow in knowledge and love for you. Grant that they would see you more clearly, love you more dearly and follow you more nearly.
And, O Lord of Life and Love, bless our cherished children. Keep them safe, keep them excited, keep them seeking to learn more and to develop their gifts. Grant that through their studies, they will gain the tools to grow in love, faith and service to you.
In Jesus name, Amen.
