Great and Glorious God, we lift up Genesis Christian Preschool on this first day of school. Pour out your blessings on the children, their families, our staff, our Preschool Director Marilyn Yoder & Assistant Director Kelly Sigler. Give them all good health and keep them safe.
We ask that you enable the preschool teachers to feel your presence. Fill them with genuine love and care for the children. Give them patience. Help them make sound decisions and give gentle guidance to the children. Inspire the teachers as they create lesson plans and daily schedules.
Bless the children as they come into this new environment. Let their adjustment to preschool be comfortable and happy. Calm their fears and comfort those who cry. Help the children listen to their teachers. Help their minds grow and develop new skills. Lead the children as they begin their Christian walk with You.
Lord, we ask for your help in learning to communicate with those who do not speak English as their primary language. Help us break down the language barriers so that we may communicate well. Let any misinterpretation of our messages be resolved calmly and with a better understanding of one another.
You are our All Knowing and All Comforting God, our Great Teacher. We invite you into this space to be with us as we grow your precious little ones. We thank you for all you have done and are continuing to do at Genesis Christian Preschool. We lift it up to you and thank you for being with us today, the first day of our new school year, and every day.
In Christ’s name we pray, Amen.
