From our friends at Vibrant Faith:
God of renewal, we invoke your presence as we begin this new school year. Bless our family as life gets busy once again. Help us to choose our involvements wisely, not over committing ourselves for the sake of doing so. Be present to our children during their classes and extra-curricular involvements. Let us remember that education is a gift that should not be wasted. Help us to take time to be together as a family, supporting and helping each other in any way we can. Bless this year as we strive to live authentic lives that are grounded in serving you and spreading your loving kindness to all people and situations we encounter. Amen.
