A PRAYER FOR THE BEGINNING OF THE SCHOOL YEAR

God you have guided your people through all things, and you are with us now. Help us at the beginning of the year:
Bless us as you blessed Abraham and Sarah heading out from Ur to unknown lands. Protect us as you protected the people from danger in the desert.
Make us strong and courageous, like the Israelities crossing the Jordan.
Renew us when we are weary, just as you helped Elijah as he fled.
Place your Spirit upon us, so that we can understand and speak your truth.
Guide us when we begin new things, just as you led the apostles to teach and preach.
When we walk through fire, keep us safe.
When the waters rise, keep us steady.
When we are lost, find us.
When we are found, help us rejoice.
Remind us again and again that you are with us, today and always. Amen.
