O living Lord and Savior, bless all who will be going to school this fall. Watch over them every day of their lives, protect them from danger, help them in difficulty, and encourage them in all they are assigned to do. Keep them faithful in their prayers, loyal in their friendships, and happy in their schools, and help them to know that, although they may be leaving some of their friends, they will also be making new ones. Help them to remember that You are always near, their Savior and friend, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Heavenly Father, we thank You that through the faithful witness of Christians from other lands the gospel was brought to this country and that it has been passed on to each successive generation and so to us. Bless those who do not have this heritage or who lack the freedom to enjoy it, and make Your presence and our prayer very real to those who live in countries where the faith is suppressed and attacked, that seeing Him who is invisible they may endure. Amen
