Their backpacks are loaded and their faces are scrubbed and their lunch cards are full.

And I know you'll walk with them, Lord. You always do. But a mom still has to ask:
Will You walk with them?
will You keep harm far away?
Will You make their minds strong and ready to learn?
Will You help them understand that hard work honors the One who created them?
Will You guide their teachers, giving them patience and wisdom and creativity and more patience?
Will You bless them for their efforts?
Will You love all those children there, the ones whose lunch accounts aren't full, the ones who feel alone?
Will You teach my children to be kind and unselfish and to love those who are different from them?
Will You point them back toward home just as soon as you can?
Lord, I give them to You today, and everyday, trusting them to Your care.
In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
