School Holiday Prayer

School Holiday Prayer

Dear Lord, 

Thank you for this holiday—
an extra chance for fun and play.
There’s so much I can learn and do
even if I’m not in school.

All the beauty and gifts abound.
The world you created is all around.
Today’s a chance to go explore,
try new things, and discover more.

I’ll miss my teacher and my friends
just as happens on weekends.
But I know that for today,
I’m thankful for this holiday.
