We thank you for your never-ending presence. In this time of uncertainty, fear, and struggle, we lift up our educators and school administrators. Guide them through this wilderness that they face. Give them the strength to make challenging decisions. Wrap them up in Your hedge of protection as they faithfully share their gifts and passions for education with our community. Reveal Your grace, love, and presence to them so that they may find comfort and rest in You.
Be with the families of our educators, school administrators, and students. Watch over them as they walk this journey with their loved one. Equip them with the tools they need to stay safe and offer support through this trying time. Embrace them with your love and strength.
We lift up our students to You, our gracious and loving God. Surround them with Your love and protection. Calm their fears and open their minds and hearts to embrace this new year with a positive spirit. Bolster their strength to navigate this new world around them and help them find new ways to let Your light shine through them.
We ask this and all things in Your holy name.
