Back to School Prayer


Back to school prayerPrayer can be good for you. It can calm your nerves and help you to relax and have a better day. People of any age can pray. It doesn’t matter which religion you are, just make sure that you are sincere with your prayer. Below are a few prayers that students, teachers, and parents can use. If you’re having a particularly hard morning, take some time to review them.


This first prayer is for protection. Protection is something that everyone wants. This prayer has been taken from the books Psalms and Thessalonians.

“Lord, I pray for your emotional, physical and spiritual protection over my kids. Keep evil far from them, and help them to trust you as their refuge and strength. I pray you will guard their minds against harmful instruction, and grant them discernment to recognize truth. I pray you will make them strong and courageous in the presence of danger, understanding that you have overcome and will get 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.”

For Teacher

This next prayer is for the teacher. We want our teachers to continue to stay bright and focused. We also want them to be able to educate the kids continuously. Lord knows they need it the times that we are living in.

“Dear God, thank you for the outstanding teachers that have given their lives to serve our children. As they prepare for the school year, provide them with the strength that they will need to lead. Also, give them the fortitude to guide and provide our children hope in their respective classrooms. Bless them beyond measure for their willingness to pour into the next generation through education. Never allow them to lose faith. They have a tough job, but they can do it.


The next prayer is for peace. Peace is something that is needed badly. There is too much violence in this world. It’s up to us to change it. This prayer has excerpts from Romans, Philippians, and Isaiah.

“Lord I pray that my kids will experience the peace of God this year that exceeds all understanding. I pray they will not worry about things that 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.

These are just three kinds of prayers that you can do. Praying for protection, praying for the teacher, and praying for peace are good ones to start with. There are so many other things that you can pray about. The Bible is a good place to draw inspiration.
