Prayer for the New School Year

Lord, thank you for the unique gifts of every child as they transition into a new school year.

Fill each student with fresh enthusiasm and a heart that is excited to learn and grow.

Cover them with your enduring love, give them confidence and grace, and equip them to persevere through trials.

Bless their teachers with wisdom, understanding and a heart to serve, as they embark on this journey together.

Amen.
