neglected work or study and our failure to take joy in the life set before us.
Shake us awake to our times,
to company shared in hours and tasks,
so that good comes for ourselves and for others,
of gifts you give in Jesus Christ.
A Prayer for students…God of truth:
strengthen teachers so that students learn to stand together in winners’ circles as well as in trials;
to share a common bond with each other’s safety,
failure, and success; to cherish differing abilities and be partners in challenges;
to collaborate in goodness and walk paths of learning one with another;
in the steps of Jesus!
