A Prayer For Parents/Students/Teachers

As our schools begin to reopen and parents return to work, parents, students and teachers need to pray for God's divine providence. As well as administrators.


Lord, you promise to guide us through the wilderness. As well as to protect us through the storm. Therefore we ask that you would make us wise when we cannot clearly see the way forward. Make us brave when we feel afraid and strong in the face of our weaknesses. Also, what seems impossible to us make possible. So that we might joyfully entrust ourselves and our children into your tender care in these trying and troubling times. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Children Going to School

I pray that you would be with me today as I go to school, Lord. Bless my going and my coming. Bless my learning and my playing. Please protect my heart from fear. Keep me safe. Please give me good friends. As well as joy on this day. And I also thank you for loving me from head to toe. In your name. Amen.

School Administrators

Almighty God, you who have promised wisdom to all who ask. We pray today for school administrators. Grant them clarity of mind, unity of spirit, strength of will, a heart of wisdom and the gift of your truth-bearing Spirit. So that they might be enabled to make decisions that lead to the flourishing of their teachers, staff, students and to the well being of the whole community. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.


O Lord, you are the Good Teacher, I ask not only that you help me to love my students well this day. But also to be patient with things that don’t go according to plan. May I help my students to feel afresh the wonder of our subject matter, to be humble in the face of ignorance, to be gracious with themselves in the light of mistakes that they might make, to delight in things newly discovered, and to love the truth with all their hearts and minds. So that they might be wise and compassionate citizens of this world that you so love. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

On Behalf of Teachers

It is you Lord, who have called and equipped the teachers in our community. We pray for them today. Watch over them, provide for them, guide them, sustain them. May you be their sun and shield. So that they might do the work entrusted to them and sense your care in these uncertain times. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
