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.

What We Really Miss When We Miss College
Lenten Reflections on the Apostle's Creed
Work less, do more, live better
