Students and teachers are preparing to go back to school. For many students, the cafeteria is a terrifying place. I created this prayer for those that will be searching for seats in the coming weeks. Share this, especially with young people you know. If they are anxious, let them know that people are praying for them. If they are not, then remind them of how it feels to not know where to sit. Hopefully they can show kindness in the coming weeks to someone that needs it.
If you would like to use it in worship, feel free (though I would appreciate an attribution somewhere in the bulletin).
