Prayer For School Students
Lord, we bring before You all the children in our schools and especially those that are vulnerable, those who are being abused or bullied and those who are finding it difficult to settle in their classes, or perhaps are finding themselves isolated for whatever reason.
Lord, You know each child and You know the needs and vulnerabilities of each one, and You also know the answers to each of their problems. Look down with pity on today's children who are having to grow up in an increasingly godless society, where every semblance of truth and godliness is being systematically attacked with a relative agenda that denies the absolutes of God.
Protect the hearts and minds of these vulnerable members of our society, and meet each one at their own particular point of need we pray. Bring good friends and compassionate staff into the lives of all children that are finding the requirements of today's schools difficult to cope with or whose innocent spirit is being crushed.
And more than anything else, we pray that You would reveal Yourself to each and every vulnerable child. Teach them Your ways and bring each one into a personal knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Give each one a true understanding that they may know that they are loved by their Father in heaven and forgiven of any sin. May each one bud, blossom and flower as they come to know and accept You as their Saviour, and give them a deep sense of Your peace and love. In Jesus' name we pray,
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, we thank You for those schools that desire to educate the children of our day and age in godly principles and sound biblical doctrine, and we ask that You would bless and protect them and the many Christian school children that attend their schools and colleges. Thank You, that such institutions of learning are still permitted to function unimpeded in our country, in this increasingly godless society. Protect them as they teach and train the children of today in Scriptural truths, knowing that they will be the teachers of tomorrow.
Lord, we pray that You would bless the teachers, the children and those that oversee the curriculum that they are using. May it remain true to the truth of Scripture. Set in authority godly men and women who are prepared and willing to stand for the truth and who themselves are grounded in the Word of God.
Lord, we pray that Your Holy Spirit would lead and guide in all things and that not only the children but the staff and administrators also would grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus, so that they are able and willing to stand firm against the wiles of the enemy, who would seek to destroy or taint the truth of God.
Guard, guide and bless we beseech You, every Christian school, and all those that are connected with each one, not only in our own country but throughout the world, and we pray that each one may produce much spiritual fruit as they continue to proclaim the truth and become a witness of Your grace in the ages to come. In Jesus' 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,
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,
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.
Lord God, Righteous Savior, may your presence fill this school. The Bible says that you are a consuming fire that will consume anything that contradicts your word in this school. Surround the school with your wall of fire. Be with every student, teacher and administrator. Help us to release all that we have no control over to you. Teach us how not to worry about school and the issues of life, for worry only steals our joy and peace. Grant us the desires of our hearts and show us how to glorify your name with everything that you give to us. In Jesus' name, we pray, Amen.
