A parent’s back to school prayer.
We want them to know so much, to find passion, to rise to the top, to stand out and excel and cause their teachers to non with approval. But really, in the end, what we want is much simpler and more eternally meaningful. We want them to be holy. We want them to be a light in places that have become dim. We want them to be strong enough to have faith and let it change them – affect what they do and say and how they treat others. We want them to be safe. We want them to learn what they need to learn to become God’s vision of who He has created them to be. That’s all.
May the Lord bless your children in their learning this year!
