Prayer for the New School Year
Lord, we greet this new school year with gratitude and hope,
We welcome this opportunity to be advocates of
Your love and kindness
With the students you entrust to our care and the
Colleagues with whom we work.
Give us the wisdom to lead together,
Show us how to lift one another when we fall
And laugh and celebrate successes with humility.
Donne-nous la générosité du don de soi,
de la reconnaissance et
appréciation des dons et de la bonté de l’autre.
Give us the knowledge and confidence
To speak and do what is right;
And to open our hearts to new ways of thinking
Of doing and of being.
Give us the goodness and the full measure of your strength
So that we can be instruments of peace;
Messengers of hope;
And champions of the child.
We ask this of you
