GRADUATION

Philip Kosloski - published on 05/26/21

Celebrate the achievements of your loved ones with this prayer for graduates.

It is often bittersweet when celebrating the graduation of a child or grandchild. They achieved great things during the past year, but are now moving on to something greater. One way to honor them during this time of transition is to offer a prayer for all graduates.

Here is a short prayer from the book of Jeremiah, combined with a blessing from the book of Numbers, that reminds us that God has a plan for those taking this step forward.

For I know well the plans I have in mind for you … plans for your welfare and not for woe, so as to give you a future of hope. When you call me, and come and pray to me, I will listen to you. When you look for me, you will find me. Yes, when you seek me with all your heart, I will let you find me…and I will change your lot. (Jeremiah 29:11-14)

The Lord bless you and keep you!
The Lord let his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you!
The Lord look upon you kindly and give you peace!
(Numbers 6:24-26)
