Thought for the day 12 August

Children start back today. Always a day of mixed feelings, but much more so this year. So many have lost so much ground over the last six months in terms of learning and social contact. Going back to studying, and making up lost time will be hard for them and their teachers. Parents/ family/ carers will find it strange too. There might be sighs of relief, but there may also be a sense of loss after nearly six months of being together

Lord, we pray for all children and young people starting school today. Help them to cope with their mixed feelings, and the challenges of catching up with missed study. Help their parents/ family/ carers to cope too
