Prayer to End a School Year

God of wisdom,

We thank you for all the gifts

you have given us

throughout this school year.

We praise you for giving us life,

for saving us in Christ,

and for choosing us to be your people.

As we come to the end of this school year,

we voice our gratitude

for the good things you have done in us,

and we praise you

for all who have shared in the work of this school.

We ask you to bless them in your love

and give them refreshment and peace.

We praise you, God,

through Jesus Christ, our Lord,

who lives and reigns forever and ever.
