A Prayer for Students

On this last day of school (at least for my students), I offer this prayer to (my) all students and graduates this summer:


They have knowledge, so will You show them now,
How to use it wisely and find a way somehow
To make the world they live in a little better place,
And make life with its problems a little bit easier to face.

Grant them faith and courage and put purpose in their days,
And show them how to serve Thee in effective ways.

So their education, their knowledge and their skill
May find their true fulfillment as they learn to do Thy will.

And may they ever be aware in everything they do,
That knowledge comes from learning, and wisdom comes from You.
