Spiritual Renewal

Back to School Prayer

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for the gift of children

Please watch over them as they begin a new school year.

Bless their teachers, school administrators, bus drivers, school support staff, friends and classmates.

Keep them safe every day.

I pray they may feel Your presence and know that You are always with them. Help them recall my loving words of support for them.

The Sister of Charity, what is she but a mother to the poor and abandoned of the world?
Élisabeth Bruyère (Personal Notebook)
If there is any one of you who needs wisdom, he must ask God, whogives to all freely and ungrudgingly; i twill be given to him.
Lc 18, 16
Yesterday has gone. Tomorrow may never come. There is only the miracle of this moment. Savor it. It is a gift.
