As our students and teachers and families prepare for a new school year we are filled with the excitement of new growth! We know that you are with them riding on buses, walking down hallways, sitting around desks. We pray that you help our children’s minds to be open to all that they have to learn. Give them spirits of joy in acquiring new knowledge and skills, and give them peace and thankful heart as they face new challenges. We pray for our teachers and school staff. Lord, bless them with creativity as they teach, patience with children, and your peace which surpasses understanding. For these students and teachers, Jesus, light their path and show them how to be shine your love at school. Lord, we are so happy to praise you for everything through Christ our Lord. Amen.
