O Lord, we look forward with eyes set on You.
We commit to seek You anew.
Before all else, we desire Your Kingdom,
To walk in Your righteousness.

O Lord, grant us an awareness of Your presence.
May we each revel in Your grace,
Understand and know Your truth,
And learn to live in Your love.

We cry out to You, O Lord. We pray You will guide us and use us.
May we answer faithfully Your call to service.
May our plans be right and pleasing to You.
May we invest our talents well in the students entrusted to us.

Look upon us, O Lord.  Protect us and empower us.
Watch over us; our families, our students, Your church.
Draw us near to Your Spirit and away from worldly temptations.
Give us Kingdom courage to be Your creative and redemptive agents.

We say farewell to one hundred years,
Now, O Lord, as we look ahead, we look to You.
Guide us into a future beyond our own imagining.
Cause us to prosper for Your Kingdom and Your glory.  Amen.

–Written by President David Alexander
