Prayer For Education
Father, we bring to You the Education Mountain. Thank You for our children and all who are
engaged in learning. Thank You also for those You call and equip to teach and thank You for
the freedom to attend school.
We pray that Your name would be exalted above knowledge that puffs up, and we ask You
to establish Your throne in the hearts of our children. We pray that our children would be
taught of the Lord and that their peace would be great.
Bless those in school administration with your wisdom that comes from above and brings
peace. Grant them knowledge of Your will and courage to follow after it. We ask for school
board members to be elected who hold deep knowledge of Your Word.
We ask for revival in our schools. Father, pour out Your Spirit on our sons and our daughters.
We ask for a harvest of souls of both teachers and students. Cause our students and
educators to experience Your love. Teach Christian students to conduct themselves in ways
that honor You and give them boldness and courage to share the gospel with their peers.
We pray for our children to have a great love for learning. We pray that students will be
taught respect for authority, obedience, and understanding of the Ten Commandments. We
pray that parents will be involved in their child's education and recognize the importance of
it. We pray that children will be taught Judeo-Christian values and taught in ways that will
cause them to reach their full potential and destiny, functioning in both wisdom and
Be with the students who feel rejected. Convict the other students and teachers who
ostracize and bully them. Keep violence away from every school. We pray for the protection
of every student and teacher and ask You to expose any weapons brought onto school
premises and render them harmless.
Lord, release Your truth into our schools. Help students to know what is right and to discern
false teaching. Increase their ability to understand and think critically about the world around
them. Prepare our children to impact the nation and not be influenced by anything false. We
ask You to invade our schools with biblical truth and call for the intercessory prayer to undergird them.
In Jesus' name, Amen!
God ears pick up every conversation our kids have. Pray to Him in recognition of what He already knows. When learning is swallowed up by the social scene, academics aren't the only thing at risk. Our children's friends' will eventually have more influence than we do. Tragically, much of what we are praying for here today comes down to friendships and social skills.
The most powerful way to pray is by quoting God's Word, and I believe it's important to memorize Scripture for that purpose and beyond. In a transcendent way, this verse also illuminates the importance God places on learning. He created a world to discover and knowledge to be attained. Classrooms can be packed and distracting, making it hard for students to focus and teachers to teach. Mandated testing doesn't always align with a child's actual capacity of knowledge.

A teacher plays such an important role in a child's life. God, be with teachers, especially those working in places that experience extreme poverty, conflict, or other challenges. Give them wisdom on how to interact with their students, and provide them with joy for the great work they do. Let them feel support and love from community members. We also pray for more people to be inspired to teach make their calling clear, guiding them along your path.
Father, we are grateful that many children have the opportunity to learn with the ease of chairs, desks, and classroom tools. But for those who don't, please find a way to fill their classrooms so they have all the tools they need to be fully present and successful at school.
