End of School Year Blessing

 

Loving Father, you sent your Son into the world to redeem us by his Cross and Resurrection. Send your Spirit upon us today to make us stewards of your gifts and witnesses of your Son, Jesus Christ, in our schools and in our world.

Christ, Teacher, and Lord, we praise and thank you for the gift of this school year. We affirm all the positive moments of insight, of the excitement of learning, of accomplishment, of creativity, of laughter, of a sense of community. At the same time, we recognize the times of struggle, of difficult work, of misunderstanding, even of failure.

It has been a year filled with grace and blessings, challenges and opportunities, joys and sorrows. As we come to the end June, we voice our gratitude for the good things you have done in us and give thanks for all who have shared in the work of our schools and sites.

During the summer months, watch over us, protect us, and guide us each day to make meaningful differences in the lives of our loved ones and in the world around us. We praise you and we thank you.

We pray this through your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. AMEN
