After weeks of splashing in the sun and running through the back yard the kiddos are heading back to school. That means that we definitely need to make sure that they are covered in prayer as they board the school bus this year. But before you send them off say this simple prayer and you’ll be able to experience the peace of God and have confidence that He is with your children. Then before you know it, they’ll be jumping off the school bus at the end of the day!
A Back to School Pray
As you head off to school today, this is what I’m praying for you:
I’m praying that your day will go smoothly — that your locker will open, that you’ll get to class on time, that you won’t forget anything, that you’ll find friends in your classes.
I’m praying that your teachers will know just how to teach you in a way that you will love to learn.
I’m praying that you will make friends who will have your back, make you laugh and will make you better.
I’m praying that you’ll have the opportunity to be the light of Jesus to someone.
I’m praying that you will always be kind, even in the face of conflict or disagreement.
I’m praying that you will seek out the new person or the lonely person and help them find their place.
I’m praying that you’ll learn to be a leader.
I’m praying that you will do everything to the best of your ability — even when you don’t want to.
I’m praying that you will be focused on the things your teachers are trying to teach you.
I’m praying that you’ll have confidence from knowing you are a child of God.
I’m praying that if things go wrong, you’ll always remember that God loves you and so do we.
I’m praying that you’ll laugh a lot during your day.
I’m praying that you will follow in Jesus’ footsteps and grow in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.
Most of all, I’m praying that this year will be filled with learning, growth, joy and fun.
Have a great year!
