Recognition of Graduates

Responsive prayer: O God, Author of all wisdom, Giver of all truth, Seeker of all servants, we thank You for the times of life that mark Your continuing goodness. We are grateful for these believers, early in a new journey, who have been open to study and learning and who now gain graduation toward tomorrows that will take them in many directions, but never from your presence.
For friendships formed, we give You thanks.
For obstacles overcome, we give You thanks.
For faith sustained, we give You thanks.
For creativity expressed, we give You thanks.
For brokenness healed, we give You thanks.
And for the “not yet” places of life, we give You thanks.
All of this we pray through the One who sat among the teachers and Who Himself grew in wisdom, even Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
