BACK TO SCHOOL PRAYER
Dear Heavenly Father,
Once again the school year is soon to start, and we praise and glorify your name for the educational opportunity these children have. We pray a fresh beginning into every child’s life. We also pray for every teacher involved, for every driver, for every parent, grandparent and guardian involved in this process. They are the pillars behind each child’s success. Allow these kids to be filled with smiley faces, excitement, and encouraged hearts as they begin classes with bravery. Help them to remember to seek you first Lord and give them the wisdom, safety and protection only you can give. Also, give them the comfort they need as they meet new friends, get adjusted to new environments, and to take on challenges in a positive way. Help them soak up the knowledge that will make them into good men and women of God and society. Help them remember that you are there next to them in the halls, the classrooms, the playground, and the gym. You are their peace and strength and help them feel that every day throughout the school year. Help them treat others with kindness and respect and to guard their hearts with the Armor of your Word. Give them joy and peace as they put their trust in you. Allow them to rely on you to move through each routine and every challenge.
For our teachers we are grateful, and we lift them up in your name. We ask that you give them grace, patience, love, and wisdom as they get to know each child and meet their educational needs. We praise you Lord, because they make such a difference in each child’s life. Help us to encourage them and support them as each school day goes by.
We pray that this may be the best school year yet.
In your Mighty Name,
