5 Back to School Prayers

Below are 5 prayers you can pray when your kids and grandkids go back to school

from Christianity.com:

 Prayers for Peace (Isaiah 26:3; Philippians 4:6-7; Romans 5:1).

Lord, I pray that my kids (grandkids) will experience the peace of God this year that

exceeds all understanding. I pray they will not worry about things they cannot

control, but that You will guard their hearts and minds and keep them trusting

in You. I pray they will not only enjoy the peace of God, but peace with God.

I pray they will develop a spirit of gratitude and thanksgiving as they look

to You daily for their needs. I pray that You will give them the capacity

for joy that bubbles up from Your peace.

* Prayers for Protection (2 Thessalonians 3:3; Psalm 46:1; John 17:15; Psalm 91)

Lord, I pray Your emotional, physical, and spiritual protection over my kids

(grandkids). Keep evil far from them, and help them to trust You as their refuge

and strength. I pray You will guard their minds from harmful instruction,

and grant them discernment to recognize truth. I pray You will make them

strong and courageous in the presence of danger, recognizing that You have

overcome and will set right all injustice and wrong one day.

Help them to find rest in Your shadow, as they live in the spiritual shelter You

provide for them. Let them know that the only safe place is in Jesus,and that

their home on earth is only temporary.

* Prayers for Purity (Psalm 51:10; Matthew 5:8; 1 Timothy 1:5;

1 Corinthians 10:13; Psalm 19:14)

Lord, I pray that You will create in my kids (grandkids) a clean heart and that

You would constantly renew a right spirit within them, keeping their thoughts

and actions pure and motivated by love. Guard them from temptation, and

let them know You are always faithful to give them a way out and help

to endure. May the words of their mouths and the meditations of their

hearts always please you and edify others.

* Prayers for Passion (Psalm 42:1; Matthew 22:37-39; John 13:34-35)

Lord, I pray that my kids (grandkids) will develop a passion for the

things of God. I pray they will hunger and thirst for You and Your Word 

and will love You with all of their heart, soul, and mind. Give them compassionate

and generous hearts to love others as much as You love them. I pray

they will always work and study with excellence, but that You will help

 them desire a servant spirit of greatness, rather than a worldly lust

for success. I pray they will fall in love with Jesus over and over again.

* Prayers for Perspective (Galatians 2:20; Matthew 28:18-20;

Philippians 1:21; Colossians 3:1-2; Ephesians 3:17-20)

Lord, I pray that my kids (grandkids) will develop an eternal perspective

and purpose, not an earthly one.  Help them to see life–and every

challenge–through Your eyes, eager and unafraid to share with others

the good news of Jesus wherever they go. I pray that they will set their

minds on things above, not just what’s going on here, and that they will

be rooted and grounded in Your love. I pray they will come to understand

the extent of Your own love for them–that it surpasses all the head

knowledge they will acquire in school. I pray they will be filled up

with You from morning ’til night.
