O God, we thank you for this new academic year and the opportunities you have given us to improve ourselves. Help me in the days ahead to make this the best year yet. We thank you for making us the way we are and giving every one of us a unique quality. We thank You for eyes to see the sky, for ears to hear the birds, for feet to walk amidst the trees and for hands to pick the flowers from the earth.
We ask you to help us in our weaknesses and to stand by our side to face our fears. We also pray for those who are physically and mentally ill. We ask you to heal them with your______?? and to make every one of us proud the way we are. We make this prayer in your holy name AMEN.
