LEADER:       In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

                       

LEADER:       Good morning.  How many of you have been counting down sleeps until the end of the school year? (pause).  So can anyone tell me how many sleeps are left? (pause).  That's right.  Just three more sleeps until the school year is over. 

                        I'll bet that Jesus felt the same sort of anticipation when he was in school.  That's right, Jesus went to school too.  Now the gospels don't mention that he went to school but we know from the gospels that Jesus could read and write and that he knew the scriptures.  He could only have learned these things from school.  So Jesus knows how hard school work is and knows the joys of getting a break from it.  Just remember that you are taking a break from school work, not from learning.  You see, every day of our lives we are learning more about ourselves, our world and about God.  This summer you will learn many things that you will be able to come back and share with your friends when you return to school in late August.  Let us pause now to pray that the Lord would bless us, protect us and help us keep learning throughout the summer.  Let us pray.

 

LEADER:       That God will bless us and our families during the wonderful months of summer. We pray to the Lord.

 

ALL:               Lord, hear our prayer.

 

LEADER:       That our homes would be places of relaxation, joy, love, peace and safety this summer.  We pray to the Lord.

 

ALL:               Lord, hear our prayer.

 

LEADER:       That we would be generous and considerate of others helping them to enjoy the blessings of summer.  We pray to the Lord.

 

All:                 Lord, hear our prayer

 

LEADER:       That we would return to school in late August having grown in knowledge of ourselves, our world and our God.  We pray to the Lord.

 

All:                 Lord, hear our prayer

 

LEADER:       Lord God,

                        This school has shared many things this year.  We thank you for both the blessings and challenges of the past year.  Bless each of the students and staff of  (your school's name) with a wonderful summer.  Keep us safe in your love that we may return in the fall ready to begin another wonderful year of school.  We make our prayer in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. 

 

ALL:               Amen.
