Back to School Prayer

“All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.” (Isaiah 54:13)

Lord, I give this school year to you.
I pray that each of my children will learn
   exactly what is right for them to learn.
Help them to master new skills
   and increase in their love of learning.
Prepare them for what
   You have planned for their future.
Protect them from what is harmful
   and expose them to good things only.

I pray that they will have good attitudes
   and a willingness to work hard.
I pray that they will
   show respect and obedience.
Please give our family peace
   during this school year.
Thank you for your love,
   protection and care!

Saint Mary’s Church hopes that this school year will be the best one ever.
May the Lord bless the crown of this year with His goodness!
