As the season changes, we are reminded that you are an unchanging God, but it is your desire to continue to change us–to mold and shape us, to teach us to have faith like a child. Lord, be our teacher!
Teach us to praise. Father, we praise you for awe, wonder, and excitement as new programs and plans are introduced at Saint Louis University this fall.
Teach us to confess. At this time of year, we are inundated with busyness. Forgive us, Father, when our busyness overshadows you.
Teach us to be thankful. We are thankful that in teaching us, you change us. Teach us, Father, to trust in you for guidance and direction.
Father, help us realize the magnitude of your grace and then to teach others what it means to live with that grace. As we seek to further your kingdom, fill us with the same exuberance, wonder, and awe that we see in children at the beginning of a new school year.
