Our Lord and Heavenly Father, You have promised to watch over Your children and our loved ones wherever we may be. Bless and protect the millions of children and young people who are starting a new school year. Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for the gift of our children. They are so precious in Your sight,for You were once a child. You know Lord the many temptations and peer pressures that come to our young people everyday. Shield them O Lord and guide them . Help them find godly friends who will support, encourage and uphold them to Christian faith.
Our Heavenly Father, we are grateful to You for the many schools opening their doors to millions of students across the globe. Bless the teachers with true wisdom and may they teach not only academic instructions, but proper morals and love of God and higher authority. As they open their mouths to relay knowledge and wisdom, may their words be filled with inspiration and encouragement, that their students will be strengthened to use their knowledge in developing their talents and abilities to make a difference for the betterment of this world.
Show us parents, teachers and students a special measure of Your grace, and lead us in the right paths. Help us not to lean in our own understanding, but in all our ways, may we acknowledge You. Give us all true wisdom which finds its joy in You. Dear Lord Jesus who has been our Teacher, help us to remember that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. May there be more prayerful parents, teachers and students who will stand up for You. May we cling to the truth, and may our lights so shine brightly that the world of learning may be reminded that knowledge is fleeting, but godly wisdom is eternal.
Thank You O Lord of wisdom, our Sovereign and Mighty God, who shows us the Way, The Truth, and The Life through Jesus Christ, Our Savior. Continue to teach us our ways, bless our growth in grace, and give us deeper understanding of Your good and gracious will. To the Greatest Teacher who ever lived, Our Savior and Friend Jesus, may Your will be done according to Your promises. Amen.
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
all who follow His precepts have good understanding. To Him belongs eternal praise"
( Psalms 111:10 ).
Gloria, what a beautiful and anointed prayer! With prayers like this WE WILL see God restored to our school systems, for NO ONE can prevent the Holy Spirit from teaching our children! Much love, Sharon
Gloria, When God leads children, parents and teachers, great things will happen! All things are possible through God, and we will pray that more and more parents and teachers will look to God for guidance as they teach our children and grandchildren! A beautiful prayer! Love, Peggy
