A Prayer for the Beginning of the School Year

My friend Kari is a school librarian, and she recently posted a prayer for the beginning of the school year. My school year starts tomorrow, and I’ll wager you know at least one person who needs a bit of prayer to start off the year well – teachers, administrators, and students:

Ready or not, our students are back to school tomorrow. It seems especially cruel to start on a Monday. For one thing, it would be nice to have one more day to get ready. And for another, those kids are going to be exhausted by Friday. And me, too. I offer you a hymn (in my book, Waterdeep counts as hymns) and a prayer for this first week of school.

Here’s the whole thing.
