A Prayer for Graduates:
In every beginning is an ending, O God, and in every end something new begins. Our siblings in Christ have graduated from high school, and are ready now for new learning and experiences. Grant that childhood’s innocence and hope may remain alive in them, bringing joy as they mature. Grant that they may hear your still small voice in their hearts saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Help them preserve old friendships while creating new ones. Grant that we who love them may help them to find their own voices, their own words and their own work in Christ’s true way, who knows the person they were created to be; we pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
