Prayer For Graduating Students
God Almighty, please be with my son as he leaves this small scene of high school and travels into the door of a big, bright new world. Hold his hand and only lead him to places that will keep him safe and secure. Help him to make good choices, please be generous with his work, let his skills be appreciated, and allow him to be successful. I ask these things in Jesus's name. Amen.
Lord God, help us seniors remember the lessons we have learned in quarantine. We are never promised anything, and now we know to always be grateful for the people and opportunities in our lives. I pray that we will see the gift of living in today and to choose joy in everything, as we encourage others to do the same. I pray that You will help us not feel jealous of future generations who get a graduation and a prom but, instead, to be happy for them. I pray these things in Jesus name, amen.
Dear Lord, You are the way, the truth, and the light. I ask that my child always remembers this as she leaves my side. Be with her every second of every day. Never leave her, and always keep her safe. Lord, no matter what, keep her safe. Provide her with new adventures and bless her with wisdom. Lord, give her an amount of wisdom that will reach to the skies. I need her to be wise. If she is wise, she will always do what's right. If she always does what's right, she will always be close to You. In your name, I pray. Amen.
