May God Bless Us

God of this year, we are walking into mystery. We face the future, not knowing what the days and months will bring to us. Be love in us as we journey. Deepen our faith to see all of life through your eyes. Fill us with hope and trust in your presence amidst all our joys and sorrows. Thank you for the gift of being able to rise each day with the assurance of your walking with us as we see these children through the school year.

God of this new year, we praise you!
