Prayer for Children in School
We come to You today with a request. We ask that You would help our children feel safe and secure while they are in school. Help them to feel safe when they are walking to and from school, when they are in class, and when they are playing on the playground. Let their hearts be filled with hope and peace. Protect them from harm and give them the strength to face any challenge that comes their way. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
Benefits Of Praying With Children
There are many benefits to praying with children in school. One of the most important is that it builds relationships between parents and children. Prayer is a powerful way to connect with our children and help them grow closer to God. When we pray together, we help our children learn how to trust God and rely on Him for guidance and protection.
Praying with your child also builds their faith in God. When they know that you believe in Him, they will too. Help them understand the importance of prayer by sharing Bible stories about people who prayed for guidance or protection. Let them know that prayer can help them when things get tough, and let them know that you will always be there for them when they need you.
Ways To Pray With Children
One way to pray with children is by incorporating prayer into their daily routines. For example, ask them to say a prayer before breakfast, bedtime stories, or during homework time. Another way to pray with children is through fun and interactive activities.
Examples include making Prayer Palaces out of popsicle sticks or cubes, having kids draw pictures of Heavenly Father and Jesus together, or asking them to write prayers for others. Whatever way you choose to pray with your children, make sure that the prayers are personal and meaningful to them.
Parenting has its own unique set of challenges, but one of the most difficult is trying to find ways to help our children excel in school. While the answer for every child may vary, there are some general tips that can be helpful for any child regardless of their situation. Here are a few prayers that might provide comfort and support as your child begins their day:
Our Lord, please give my son/daughter strength as they face each new challenge in school today. Help them focus on their assignments and learn as much as they can. Guide their teachers so that all students feel respected and appreciated. Thank you for giving them the intelligence and creativity to learn whatever you have chosen for them to learn this day. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
