Praying for my girls as they start school this week and so covet your agreement. Please feel free to extend to your own children.
Lord, I pray for Emma and Lexi’s school year. May it be a year of learning and laughter and love.
May their teachers be full of wisdom, patience, love, forgiveness and self-control.
May Emma and Lexi be full of curiosity, fortitude, patience, self-control, love and joy. Help them to quickly overcome any anger, frustration, unforgiveness, jealousy and self-doubt. Give them faith where fear tries to reign. Close their eyes and ears to evil they might encounter.
I pray when they lead may it be to your light and when they follow, may it not be into darkness.
Give the children around them peace, patience and self-control.
Protect them from any harm Satan may try to form against them, either through another child, teacher, administrator, parent or unknown outside force. Put angels around them and the school as they sit in classrooms and walk the hallways.
May Emma and Lexi hear and obey your Holy Spirit in all situations.
Bless them, their peers and their teachers. May we look back and see your grace and give you glory.
In the rich name of Jesus Christ, amen and amen.
I would love to say a prayer for your school children today. Leave their initials and grade and I’ll pray specifically for them.
