Back-to-School Prayers You Can Share with Parents

Here are two prayers I shared with the parents in our ministry.

One is a prayer they can pray with their child and one is a prayer they can pray for their child.  Feel free to use.  Praying parents make the difference in a child's life.

A Prayer With Your Child

Dear God,

Thank you for ____________. As he/she begins this school year,

help him/her to use the talents and gifts you've given him/her to do his/her very best.

May he/she listen to his/her teachers with respect.

Help him/her be honest if he/she is ever tempted to cheat.

Help him/her to always tell the truth, be kind to everyone at school,

and treat others as he/she would like to be treated.

Help him/her to make good friends and be a good friend to others.

And help him/her to remember that You’re always with him/her.

and that You’ll never leave his/her side.

May he/she love You and follow You with all his/her heart, soul, and strength.

In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
