A Back to School Blessing for 2019-2020

Tomorrow our family goes back to school.

While we are sad that summer break is coming to an end, we are excited for all that the new school year brings.

There will be new friends, new teachers, new subjects, new experiences, new adventures, new discoveries, and so much more.

Dear God, as the new school year starts, we pray for Your blessing for our family.

Help us to make the most of the gift of our children’s education.

Help us to greet each day with a smile, a positive attitude, and an eager mind, ready to learn and grow.

Help us to appreciate our classmates, friends, and teachers.

Help us to live our values every day.

When the alarm clock rings, remind us that we are blessed in more ways than we can count.

Remind us that we are blessed, and that it is our joy and honor to be a blessing to our Kehilah (community) and our world.
