A Prayer for the First Day of School


God thank you that I am part of a privileged few that get to experience graduate education. Help me to steward this responsibility well. I am excited for what I get to learn this year. Allow it to be formational, and please help me to understand more about my purpose. God be with me in my fear and my anxiety. As I learn to be a counselor, be with me as I mourn my own story. As I learn to hope for others, help me to hope for myself. Most of all, God help me to care well for myself, so that I can care well for others. Amen.
