Here’s a prayer of blessing for a graduating student from the Hill Connections website.
Prayer of Blessing
(Name of graduate), we ask you to stand
as we send you forth with our love and blessing.
(If possible, all present may be invited to stand around the graduate with arms extended in blessing or hands upon the one being blessed.)
O God, Giver and Sustainer of all life,
we ask your blessing upon (name)
as she/he stands at the threshold of a new adventure.
In her/his living and loving may she/he always remember
that you are the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
Give her/him the wisdom to seek your way
and to proclaim your peace and justice,
that you may be praised
and that throughout (name’s) life
our world may become closer to the designs
of your bountiful and loving plans.
(Name), may God bless you
and keep you safe through the journey of this life
until you see the smile of God’s love
welcoming you to your eternal home. Amen.
— This prayer of blessing is part of a longer Blessing for a Graduate liturgy.
