Father in heaven, we thank you for the freedom that was so valiantly purchased by the sacrifices of those before us. Thank you for heroes like Fred Leopold and Don Rees and thank you for blessing our ceremony in honoring them.
We also thank you for a safe place to gather. Lord, we thank you for this day for our gathering where we share our love and lives with our fellow classmates (and teachers).
Please bless those who were unable to attend this breakfast and those classmates who are ill.
Please bless the food we are about to receive and all those who prepare and serve it.
We thank you for all you have done for us and all you will do in the future, in the name of your son, Jesus.
