Prayer For Highschool Students And Teachers

Come, Holy Spirit, Divine Creator, true source of light and fountain of wisdom! Pour forth your brilliance upon my dense intellect, dissipate the darkness which covers me, that of sin and of ignorance. Grant me a penetrating mind to understand, a retentive memory, method and ease in learning, the lucidity to comprehend, and abundant grace in expressing myself. Guide the beginning of my work, direct its progress, and bring it to successful completion. This I ask through Jesus Christ, true God and true man, living and reigning with You and the Father, forever and ever. Amen.

Dear Father, Thank you for our teachers, our school and our families. As we gather together this morning we invite Your Holy Spirit to inspire us, guide us and teach us in everything that we do today. We give you our anxious thoughts and receive your peace. Thank you that you promise to be with us always. Amen.

Dear Lord and Father of all, Thank you for today. Thank you for ways in which you provide for us all. For Your protection and love we thank you. Help us to focus our hearts and minds now on what we are about to learn. Inspire us by Your Holy Spirit as we listen and write. Guide us by your eternal light as we discover more about the world around us. We ask all this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Father of Light and Wisdom,
thank you for giving me
a mind that can know
and a heart that can love.

Help me to keep learning every day of my life--
no matter what the subject may be.
Let me be convinced that all knowledge leads to you
and let me know how to find you and love you
in all the things you have made.

Encourage me when the studies are difficult
and when I am tempted to give up
Enlighten me when my brain is slow
and help me to grasp the truth held out to me.

Grant me the grace to put my knowledge to use
in building the kingdom of God on earth
so that I may enter the kingdom of God in heaven.

We thank you for this new day Lord.
Help us to embrace all that it may hold for us.
To hear the birdsong, and have new melodies in our hearts.
To see the sunrise and create beauty with our hands.
To touch the leaves that grow afresh,
And allow your love to touch our hearts.
To smell the fragrance of the flowers
And breathe in the wonder of your creation.
To dwell on the beauty of our world,
And study and fathom the science and maths miracles.
To enjoy the conversations we have and the lessons we go to,
May we drink in all the goodness you have for us.


Heavenly Father,

You hold each of us in your loving hands.
Come fill our hearts, minds and bodies afresh with hope.
Help us to cast our worries upon you, so that we can embrace our learning today.
Bless us as we study and grow together.
Come and anoint those who teach and tutor us to be bringers of insight and knowledge.
Lord, watch over us all, keep us safe within your Almighty hand.


Dear God,

thank you for looking after our school.
Thank you that you love each and every one of us here.
Help us to learn, play and share together.
It's incredible that you are there every second of the day,
all the time,
beside each of us.


Thank you God for all the things you've made our world to be.
For every single living plant, insect, bird and tree.

Thank you God for all the people you have placed around us.
For every single parent, friend and teacher that we trust.

Thank you Lord for all the gifts you send to us each day.
For every single meal and snack, for cuddles, toys and play.

Thank you God for caring for us, we know you always see,
Our every need, our worries, cares, our laughter, joys and tears.

Thank you Lord that you're our friend, you delight in all we do,
Especially when you hear our prayers, and we give thanks to you.
