Prayer for Students in School

Sometimes parents or guardians are requested to pray for students. Here is one of the prayers to lift the students to our loving Heavenly Father.

“O Lord,

We bring all the students in this school before You.

We know that You take care of our children at all times.
In these uncertain times, we sometimes become anxious when the children are at school.

However, we want to hold onto Your word that tells us that instead of being anxious about anything, to pray and make our requests known to You. (Philippians 4:6-7)

Therefore, we bring the students before You. Take away any distractions and give them clear minds so they easily understand what they are taught by their teachers.

Continue protecting them and shielding them from any dangers they may face in school or when they leave school.
