School starts this week here in Birmingham, and other areas will be starting soon. I thought now was a good time to say a prayer for not only our students, but all those who interact with them. Please join me in saying a prayer for the new school year.
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank you for this day. We thank you for your many blessings. We thank you for another opportunity to come before your throne of grace. Lord, we come asking your blessings upon this new school year. We thank you for keeping students safe over the summer and pray that they are returning to school with a great attitude and an eagerness to learn with everything they need to be successful this school year. Place a hedge of protection around our students, faculty and staff, and all who interact with our children.
We pray that you will give our kids a desire to learn and our educators a desire to teach. Free our schools of violence, bullying and anything that hinders them from being an environment that is conducive to learning.
Lord, we know that school only takes up part of the day, we pray your blessings for students and administrators outside of the school walls as well. Please bless their homes, their families, and their activities.
Lord, we come thanking you in advance that this will be the best school year yet. It’s in Jesus’ name that we pray. Amen.
