Tuesday, September 12
We sign ourselves in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
The prophet Ezekiel wrote these words:
You say, "The Lord's way is not fair!" Hear now, house of Israel: Is it my way that is unfair, or rather, are not your ways unfair?" 
This reading speaks to us about fairness. Take some time today to talk about what fairness looks like in your classroom and in the playground.
Open Eyes and Hearts
May God bless us with strength to seek justice.
May God bless us with the courage to ask for forgiveness.
May God bless us with wisdom to care for our earth.
May God bless us with love to bring forth new life.
In the name of God, the maker of the whole world, of Jesus, our new covenant, and of the Holy Spirit who opens eyes and hearts.
Amen. OCGE 4g
We ask God for these blessings but God has also given us parents and teachers. They can help us develop our communication, decision-making, problem-solving skills to help us on our journey.
Let us pray with the words that Jesus taught us:
Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done,
on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
 Ezekiel, 18:25
