Prayer For Returning To School

Lord, I pray that my kids (grandkids) will develop a passion for the things of God. I pray they will hunger and thirst for You and Your Word and will love You with all of their heart, soul, and mind. Give them compassionate and generous hearts to love others as much as You love them. I pray they will always work and study with excellence, but that You will help them desire a servant spirit of greatness, rather than a worldly lust for success. I pray they will fall in love with Jesus over and over again.

Father, please fill me with your understanding as I instruct others, Help me to see the individual potential of every student I teach. Father, please fill me with your patience as I teach others, Help me to keep giving of my time and energy, especially to those who struggle the most. Father, please give me your divine wisdom as I am with my class, Show me when I must discipline and when I can show mercy. Father, help me to depend totally on You, For You are the source of my strength, courage and peace. Father, above all, may I love and care for each student I teach. Show me how to serve as Christ serves Give as Christ gives Love as Christ loves. I ask all this in the precious name of Jesus, My Saviour and friend. Amen.

Almighty God We give you our school. We give you all the teachers and staff who work here, We give you all the children who study here. We pray our school would be place of great discovery, adventure and creativity. May it be a place where we love to learn and where we learn to love, A place where every one is respected and all are deeply valued. We ask all this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

God grant me the serenity To accept the things I cannot change; Courage to change the things I can; And wisdom to know the difference. Amen. (prayer attributed to Reinhold Neibuh

Dear Father God, Thank you for holiday times For freedom, family and friends. Help me to keep these happy times in my heart. A am excited to start school. To spend time with my teacher and school friends. Help me to settle back into this school year! Help me to learn, to grow in confidence And to have lots of fun.

Lord, thank You that You are equipping my children to learn this year and work hard, not just for grades, but because they desire to please You. Father help them in the times where they feel tired and weary. Help me to encourage them and lift them up, but also help them to push through when necessary. I pray above all else this year that they would begin to understand that the work they do is to glorify You. In Jesus' name, Amen!

Father, I thank you for the gift of friendships. I thank you that You've wired each of my children uniquely different to satisfy your purpose for them. Let that beauty shine as they head back to school and engage with others. Help others to see the good in them and help them to see the good in others. Father steer them to the relationships you want them to be in and protect them from the ones that could hurt them. Help me to guide them and teach them what it means to be a friend. Lord, I pray that they are placed with the right teachers who will walk in understanding with them, but also challenge them to be their best. In Jesus' name, Amen!

Thank you, Lord for Your divine protection over our children. Keep them safe as they travel to and from school. Protect them from any physical harm while they are in school. I stand on Your Word that no weapon formed against them will prosper. I thank you that Your angels stand guard over them and surround them like a shield. Guard their hearts and minds as they step out to meet new friends. Let negative words or comments, roll off them and not take root in their souls. Cover them as they navigate this new school year and guide them in the right direction. In Jesus' name, Amen!
