As we begin preparing our children for the start of the school year let’s begin with prayer.
Let us pray for our children and the friends they will make, for the teachers who will influence and impact their lives, and for the opportunities our children will have to impact the lives of others through their kindness and respect.
Let us pray with our children for protection from harm, for guidance in the choices they will make and for a desire to learn and grow.
Let us pray our children……
being rooted and established in love,
may have power, together with all the saints,
to grasp how wide and long and high and deep
is the love of Christ,
and to know this love that surpasses knowledge —
that they may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
— Ephesians 3:17b-19
