Prayer For School Day
Thank You, Father, for the children and young people in our schools that have come to a saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Lord, we ask that You would lead and guide them during their school days and protect them from the wiles of the enemy who seeks to shipwreck the faith of the children and lure them into atheistic thinking and unbiblical doctrine that deny the truth of the Lord Jesus.
Protect the minds of all Christian children in our schools, and we pray that You would use each one to be a light shining in a dark place and a witness to the goodness and love off God.
Give them courage in school when they are laughed at or mocked, and may they so display the love of Jesus, and His grace of forgiveness, that other children and staff members may be attracted to their faith and come to a knowledge of Jesus Christ through their childhood witness. I pray that each one may be rooted and grounded in Your love so that they are not enticed into worldly thinking during their school days, but rather that their faith in Christ Jesus may become stronger and unshakable as they grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, in Whose name we pray,
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for holiday times when we have freedom to spend quality time with family and friends and to take a break from the daily routine of school and curriculum based work. Thank You for the fun times we have all enjoyed, and now that we are about to start a new term at school, we pray that You would continue to be with us, to help and encourage in all we say and do.
Help us to settle back into the daily routine of school work and give us a heart that desires to learn, a brain that is able to retain what is needful and the ability to dismiss that which is not edifying or necessary for health or wholeness.
Fill our hearts and minds with Your truth and light, and hold us steady in the palm of Your hand as You have promised. Keep us from every sort of danger throughout each day, and may we seek to love You more and serve You better with every passing day. In Jesus' name we pray,
Father, I always struggle to keep time and end up getting in trouble with my teachers. Lord, help me to manage my time well. Bring order to my life. Let me go to class and do what is needed within the specified time. Holy Spirit, guide me in all my studies and keep me focused on the things that matter in life. Strengthen me with your power that I may resist temptations that distract me and cause me to misuse my time. In Jesus' name, I pray, Amen.
Lord of Power, your word says that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. As we approach exams, help me perform well in all subjects. Give me the wisdom and strength to do exceptionally well. Lord, remove fear from my heart and help me to be as bold as a lion when I take my exams. There are subjects that I find difficult, but Lord, I know that you're with me, and because of that, I will excel in them. Lord, I have friends who are struggling academically, spiritually and socially. Lord, let them know that you are more than able to help them overcome whatever is going on in their lives. May they draw strength from you alone. Help those who are struggling with addictions. Let your grace be sufficient for them so that they can overcome these addictions. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray, Amen.
God of Miracles, I cannot handle life at school without you. Give me favor with my teachers and my fellow students. Help me to read your word and meditate on it day and night so that I can be like a tree that is planted by the river bank. Holy Spirit, give me direction so that I can live according to the plans God has for me. Grant my parents favor at their work that they may always have the money to pay school fees in time and take care of our family. Lord, I pray for those students who come from low-income families. Please grant them your favor that they may find people to help them and their families financially so that they can eat, live and study without worry. In Jesus' name, I pray, Amen.
Way Maker, Promise Keeper, our Father in Heaven, we ask you to give us wisdom and guidance in all our studies. Help us to make decisions that align with your word and bring glory to your name. Give us clarity so that we don't fall into the traps of peer pressure. Give us insight on how to manage crucial aspects of our high school life and teach us to listen and adhere to school rules and regulations. In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen.
Lord of Heaven's Armies, so many bad things are happening in high schools around the world. Many people have lost their lives because of shootings and drug abuse. Lord, save us from the snare of the devil. Cover us with your feathers and help us to find refuge under your wings. I pray to you that no weapon formed against this school or any other school in the world shall prosper. Thank you for watching over us always. In Jesus' name, we pray, Amen.
Almighty and Everlasting God, you are my rock and fortress. I call upon you to be my shield. As I go back to school, Lord, keep my lamp burning in my studies and relationships. Arm me with strength so that I may be able to handle the different challenges that we face at school. Give me the courage to face each day with grace and love. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray, Amen.
