A Back to School Litany (Congregational response in bold)

As we embark on this new school year, we know that it will hold joy and frustration, success and failure, happiness and grief.

Help us, Lord, to place our trust in you.

Lord, we ask that you use this season to continue to form our children in your likeness, that they might carry your love throughout our community.

Help us, Lord, to place our trust in you.

When we send our children to school, we know they are in your hands. Lord, please make our schools places of learning, peace, and safety.

Help us, Lord, to place our trust in you.

In all we do, we want to honor you with faithful lives. Throughout this school year, may your name be glorified by our dependence on you.

Lord, be our rock and our refuge.
