For all our teens -

For all our children, particularly our teenagers in this stressful world:

A Prayer for Young People

O God, we pray and beseech you
to guide and protect young people
from the dangers that are ever present in our world today.
Be with them, as they experience both sickness and health,
sorrow and joy,
loneliness and friendship,
success and failure.
Gracious God,
give to them the courage and strength
to make the right decisions
as they journey through life.
Through the power of the Holy Spirit,
may they come to know and experience your loving care.
We make this prayer through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

When there is nothing I can do, and nothing I can say, at least I can pray.

I found this extremely apropos, especially given that tomorrow is National See You at the Pole day.
