A Prayer for the End of Term
as we come to the end of another term
we turn to you in confidence
and place any difficult relationships
into the healing hands of Jesus, your Son.
Enable us to leave behind any pain of the past
and any regrets or bitterness,
entrusting the past to your mercy,
the present to your love,
and the future to your providence.
Help us appreciate more
the need to keep a good balance in our lives.
May the holiday be for us a time of rest and recreation
to help restore us and re-create us
in your image and likeness,
as we enjoy more of the love and presence
of our families,
on whom we ask your blessing.
