Prayers for our Children’s Education

posted by Mark Herringshaw

Each day this month we’ve been posting one prayer for our children and their education. They have just begun school and this is a great time to send them off with our blessing. God cares about our children and their practical lives, their health, their learning, their relationships. Below I have included a prayer for each of the remaining days of the month:

 

September 15: Lord, without your help we are helpless, so as parents, be our guide as to how we can best communicate and encourage our teachers.

 

September 16: Lord, you love children, help the adults who come in contact with our students to see them the way you see them.

 

September 17: Lord of healing and health protect our school from the outbreak of communicable diseases.

 

September 18: God you love to communicate help the administrators to communicate like you would when dealing with sensitive issues between teachers and parents.

 

September 19: Lord, we ask your favor and blessing for this school.

 

September 20: God, we know we can trust you, so we ask you to have your way with this school, your agenda not ours.

 

September 21: Lord, hear our prayer as we ask for your mercy and grace as we get in the way of what you want to do at this school.

 

September 22: Lord, you are a God of Peace. Create and environment of discipline and order in our school.

 

September 23: God, your presence generates calm and confidence. Quiet the hearts of any troubled students and give them your peace.

 

September 24: God, you guard us physically, emotionally, spiritually. Create a safe and peaceful atmosphere in this school and shield everyone from any threats of violence.

 

September 25: God, you are a healer. Isolate and eliminate the spread of cold and flu viruses in this school. Give the staff wisdom to protect the health of students.  

 

September 26: God, you are the source of all wisdom and knowledge. Bless the learning process in each classroom. Give each teacher a renewed passion for his/her subject and creative ideas for lesson plans. Give them insight to know how to help each student understand and learn.

 

September 27: Father, you are our true father. Bless the families represented in this school. Shield each student from any dangers in their home, and bring them all to complete emotional health.

 

Question: Are you seeing in responses to your prayers for your children? Let us know…

    How about adding a prayer for God helping children open their minds to learning and to help them learn to behave properly in class so their thoughts are on learning and being good as he would want them be.
