Encouragement, Support and Love

August 26, 2013

The backpack and work bag prayer we’ve been living with recently

God of all knowledge and wisdom,

we pray your blessing on these students,

young and old, as they begin a new year.

Help them to discover

and develop the gifts

you have given them.

As they grow in knowledge,

help them also to grow in kindness and compassion,

learning respect for themselves and others.

Strengthen them with encouragement, support, and love. 

in Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen.

Today, let’s focus on this line: Strengthen them with encouragement, support, and love. 

As much as you and I might feel we need that this week, someone is counting on you today for that very same dose of encouragement, support, and love.

By the grace of God may we both find and share those today.

    Thanks for this today, Joe. I find it quite meaningful as Noah just left with his class for 3 days of outdoor education at the Keystone Science School. He was quite excited and so are we. Jenny
