Prayer for Schools

Heavenly Father,

We lift up all of the schools in our community to You today. We pray for the teachers, administrators, and staff who work tirelessly to educate and guide our children. We pray for the students who are seeking knowledge and understanding, and for those who may be struggling in their studies.

We pray that Your love and presence would be felt in every classroom and that Your Word would be taught with grace and truth. We pray for protection and safety for all who are on school grounds, and for a spirit of unity and respect to prevail among all those who learn and work there.

We pray that these schools would be a beacon of light in our community and that they would reflect Your goodness and love to all who enter their doors. We pray that they would be a place where students can grow and flourish, both academically and spiritually.

We trust in You, Lord, and we know that You have a plan for each and every one of these schools. We pray that You would use them to bring about Your kingdom on earth and that You would be glorified in all that takes place within their walls.

This we pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
