Prayer for our Schools - 1/3/17

O Lord God, Your Son, Jesus, knows what it is like to be rejected for He came to His own, and His own people did not receive Him. Be with those who are new in our schools and are trying to make new friends. Grant that our students welcome and befriend them. Look upon all who feel alone and embrace them with Your abiding presence. Grant that they may find friendships among people who are faithful to You; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
