Prayer For New School Year

Lord, as summer comes to a close may all the memories of lazy hot days, boredom, vacations, and the escape from the normal routines carry us into the return of school. We pray those places of learning be truly places where discovery is encouraged and knowledge is the bridge to greater understanding of oneself and the world. May schools and all who return find blessings in learning and teaching and being together as a community. Grant safety to all gathered in all activities, may grace, courage and respect govern interactions and lessons, so that all will feel welcomed. Protect those who are scared and those who face obstacles to being part of their learning community. Grant compassion and understanding in diversity that all may find the spark that ignites a love for learning and a passion for growing individually and collectively.  We pray in your Spirit that calls each of us to develop mind, body and spirit, Amen.
