In this season of transition, help us loving God to encourage those who are about to begin their new lives. There are so many young people who are moving from the relative comfort of home to their next stage, and still others who have finished their schooling at trade schools, colleges and universities. May feel the love and excitement we have for them and be encouraged by all who have been a part of getting them to this day. Help them to continue to be inquisitive, honorable and loyal. Pour out your blessings upon them this and everyday and help them to feel your presence in the good and bad times that will inevitably be a part of their journey. All this we ask in you, our Loving God. Amen.
