A Graduation Blessing
Before you were even formed, God knew you. While in your Mother’s womb, God named you. At your birth, God’s breath filled you with life.
Today we celebrate what you have become at this moment in time. And so we pray,
God of our beginnings, We thank you for the gifts of these graduates; their excitement, their awesome wonder and curiosity, their open speech and encouraging words. heir contributions have blessed and challenged us, and we have become a richer and more diverse community because of them.
As they step forward into the world that awaits, comfort their fears with the full knowledge of your divine presence.
Strengthen their resolve to walk in the footsteps of Jesus as modern-day disciples in a world that needs their spirit.
Guide their feet as they move through life, protecting them from the pitfalls of darkness while they help lead future generations into the warmth and promise of your light.
We ask this blessing upon each of them, In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
