Dear God I give You thanks
For the triumph of this day,
For successful completion
Of this part of life’s way.
Now I would use my learning
In giving as I can,
Of love as well as skill,
In service to fellow man.
Oh, help me find that place
Where You have need of me,
For there will be fulfillment,
Love…and joy…and harmony.

         –Elizabeth Searle Lamb

Prayers for Graduates

6 of 6

Dear God
Thank You for the knowledge these graduates learned in school,
for the successes and the failures that have taught them how to succeed;
for friendships gained;
for the support of understanding  parents and teachers;
for the gift of self-knowledge.
Lord, give them the strength to be vulnerable,
the courage to care and the wisdom to love.
