A Prayer of our children returning to school!


Family, friends and Saints…Good morning Good Morning one and all. Well, it’s about that time for our little ones to head back off to school. I believe that it is very important to pray over our children as they start their new school year, wouldn’t you agree? As we all know, there are so many negative influences out there in the world and we have to remain prayerful and powerfully active in our children’s lives. Let us pray together for them, that they may find peace in learning this year and that the protection and love of God is always with them.

A Back to School Prayer

Father God, Lord, We pray that you be with all of our children, whether young or old, toddler or teenager, 1st grader or master’s student, that is returning back to school this year. Protect them Father God as they wait at the bus stops of America, ride the bus, travel by bike, car, or walk to school. Keep them safe from dangers seen and unseen Father. Help our school administrators, police, crossing guards and bus drivers to remain attentive, fair, alert and anointed on their jobs.

Lord, give our children favor with their friends, classmates and teachers and help them to pay close attention in class especially, Father. We ask you Father to Let this be their very best year ever for positive school memories, academics, sports, the arts and friendships. Be with our beloved children’s administrators and teachers this year, Father. Help them to richly teach in those ways that each and every student can comprehend, remember and understand. Let them have reasonable but high expectations of every child and give them patience whenever patience seems to be running low and/or being tested. Immensely Bless the teachers with administrative support and continually encourage them to remember each child is to be loved, cherished and educated equally.


Lord God, Please help every child to stand tall against the peer pressures of the system, empowering them to make the right decisions that will be pleasing in your eyes Father. Protect, hold close and surround them with outstanding friendships that are positive and supportive influences to them this year. Keep those drugs, sexual overtures, Gossip mongers, bullies and alcohol out of their sight and reach, that they may be better enabled to be properly educated and display the beauty of holiness. Father, help our children to keep their bodies and hormones in check, avoiding sex and improper sexual behavior. Again Father, we ask you to protect our children from bullies and those evil situations and people that mean them harm. Help them, Father, to talk, understand and work out their problems instead of teasing, arguing and fighting with each other.

In conclusion, Lord over everything we know love and trust, help us as care givers, supporters and parents to be even MORE supportive of our children during this year. Please strengthen our resolve and discernment. Let us know when something is going on with our children’s lives, that we may guide, aid, defend and support them. Help us to keep them steady, ready and on track with their assignments, social engagements, homework and studies. Re-charge our brains and memories to allow us to remember all of the teachings and subjects that we took so many years ago so that we can be effective in supporting our children in completing assignments, projects and their homework. In the matter of finance Father, we call upon you to provide for us financially so that we can allow our children to go on field trips, buy school yearbooks, supplies, clothes and pictures; again Father, provide appropriate clothing for the seasons, school events, or whatever else our children may need to truly enhance their educational experience. Give us all true favor on our jobs, homes and lives so that we may be able to attend activities, support sports teams and school charities that our children may have. Remind us of the need to pray daily for our children Father and that the very basis of there success…..Starts at home.

In Jesus’s Name,


To each and every one of you, Have a powerful school year! May the Lord keep you all covered in his anointing! Powerful you are in all you do and May God Bless YOU!
