A Prayer for Schoolchildren
Many parents and teachers have requested that we write a prayer for schoolchildren, and so we listened! This prayer asks God to both protect and guide school students and children. While we can't personally watch our children at every point of the day, we can ask God to protect, care for, and watch over them, trusting that he is in charge.
Father of all mercies,
We ask that You would bless the youngest and littlest of learners, the most helpless and powerless of persons, with Your infinite and loving mercy, granting them the strength to learn, concentrate, and act in love towards their teachers and fellow students. We also ask that You would watch over them at home and at school and give them proper direction so that they may learn of Your wonderful virtues.
We ask this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ.
