Prayer-At the beginning of a new school year, O God of wisdom,
we offer thanks and praise for the gift of new beginnings
and for the opportunity to learn and to wonder.
We pray for teachers, students, and staff
that this year might be rewarding for all.
Be with us as we face the challenge of new tasks,
the fear of failure, the expectations of parents, friends, and self.
In our learning and our teaching,
may we grow in service to others and in love for your world,
through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen. (excerpted from The United Methodist Book of Worship, 535. The United Methodist Publishing House, Nashville, TN. Copyright 1992)
