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