Blessings for a new school year

Loving God,

Our creator, bless this journey of a new school year that we undertake today. Refresh our souls and renew our spirits.
We welcome those who are new to our community and
ask that you strengthen them to share the wonderful gifts you have given them.
Lord, make our hearts pure as we prepare for the return of students to this school, and may you guide them to return with open hearts and minds eager to learn.

We ask this in Your name,
Amen
