Please walk beside us and keep Your loving hand upon us
that we might learn and grow as You want us to.
We don’t know yet what this year will bring,
but we ask You please to show us how to
love and respect our new teachers and classmates.
Open our minds and hearts to all that we will learn from them.
Help us to make good friends and to be good friend to those who need us.
Most of all, please help us to be open to all the new knowledge,
that this year of learning holds for us.
Help us to be the best students we can be
and in this way to give You praise and thanks and glory.
