God of all knowledge, you knew us when we were still in our mother’s womb.
You know our comings and our goings. Grant us wisdom to act on the knowledge we have of you,
and humility to admit when we do not know what to do. Bless our minds with the knowledge of
you and how you sent your Son into the world to show us the way to you. Bless all students who are preparing to go back to school.
Bless their teachers and aides that help them to learn. In addition, give us who are parents
the ability to be the first teachers in the faith we have received from our parents.
We ask all this through Christ our Lord and brother. Amen.
