Father, today in my community as well others and in the weeks to come in other communities, parents will be dropping off their child for their first day of school. I ask that you be with them as well as the children.

Grant peace in all their hearts.

Help the teachers to have wisdom and patience as they work with the children to make this vital transition.

Be with the parents as they let go and leave with a mixture of joy and sadness that a chapter in life and parenting has come to an end and a new one has started.

I am grateful for your grace and help as I remember that day now 10 years distant for the first time. Bless my boys this day and help them to honor You in all they say, do, and think.
