Prayer for those returning to school

Heavenly Father, as the children and young adults return to school today, we pray for their protection and guidance. Use this time and new school year to open their eyes to the wonderful world You created. Grant that they not only grow in knowledge but also wisdom. Keep them safe from attacks on their faith. Grant Your blessing upon all parents as they shape and guide their children each day. We also pray for teachers and assistants as well as administrators, that they will serve well, giving themselves to educating the young people in the best way possible. Give each person patience to listen, to understand, and to love as You have loved us. May this be a special year for all involved. And most importantly, Lord, may they all be drawn closer to Your Son who in his great wisdom and love gave Himself for all that we might have life everlasting; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God now and forever. Amen
