It’s crazy that school has already started in many places. Our first day back to school was yesterday. After I dropped off my son at school I came back to my house. I drank my coffee while sitting in my rocking chair. I prayed on my front porch, which I normally do every day. My prayer usually consists of a little bit of everything, but because school started for us yesterday, my prayer was a little different.
School Year Prayer
Lord, I thank you for allowing me to have another day. I pray for all children, college students, teachers, coaches, administrative workers, parents, grandparents, and all who work in the schools. I pray you will be with each and every person. I pray you may guide, direct, and lead each person in the right direction. I pray for protection over each and every school in this world.
Heavenly Father, I ask you to be with all of the teachers/coaches. Give them patience and strength. Being a teacher is not easy and I ask that you may help them throughout the school year. Give them the wisdom that they need to handle any situations that come their way. Help them to have a loving heart for each child. Help each teacher/coach to remember the importance of school. It’s not the STARR test, but it’s children learning and growing. Help the teachers to remember to laugh and to remember why they became a teacher.
Lord, I pray for all parents, grandparents, and anyone that are raising children. I ask for guidance in raising our children. Help us to be able to listen to our kids. Help us to be in their life and not be too busy to ask them questions. Help parents to slow down and enjoy their children. Lord, please direct all parents in how they discipline. Give them strength.
Father, I ask you to be with the college age young adults. Help direct them to the right path. Help them to be able to listen to the Holy Spirit. Help them make wise decisions. Father, help them to be able to juggle life, school, and relationships in a healthy manner.
Lord, thank you for all that you are doing and what you are going to do. I ask this in Jesus name. Amen!
