A Prayer for the Right-On School

by the Rev. Michael W. Hopkins

Good Jesus, who welcomed children and taught us all to enter the Kingdom of God like them: we pray for the children, counselors, and volunteers of the Right On School, that their summer time of study and recreation may bring them to a fuller sense of themselves as your children, created in the image of God and filled with the power of your life-giving Spirit; help them to shine with the light of faith, faith in you that enables faith in themselves so that they know they are somebody in your eyes and strive to be the best they can be; in your name we pray. Amen.
