Prayer for the Begining of the School Year

God of wisdom and might,
we praise you for the wonder of our being,
for mind, body, and spirit.
Be with our children as they begin
a new school year.
Bless them and their teachers and staff.

Give the strength and grace as their bodies grow;
wisdom and knowledge to their minds
as they search for understanding;
and peace and zeal to their hearts.

We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
