Fall is almost here y’all and many of your kiddos have recently or are about to start school! What a beautiful time of the year this is! For teachers, it’s a new school year with new minds to influence and teach! For parents, it’s a time of letting go just a little bit more as your little ones are yet another year older and another year closer to graduating. For the kiddos, it’s another new year of adventures, growth, memories and of course learning! As parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, it is so important that we cover our teachers and students with prayers. That we ease into a new year by handing our desires for the next school year over to the greatest Teacher of them all, our Heavenly Father! Let us pray….
We just thank you for the past year and all of the growth we experienced. We thank you for the freedom to learn, to read and to write! We thank you for the amazing work that you will be doing in our students this school year. We ask that you cover them with your protection as they embark on a new journey. That you bring the right friends into their lives and give them the discernment to surround themselves with other students who are believers and who will compel one another to grow strong into Your light. We pray for a school year of growing more into the person You have created them to be and that they walk in courage and grace as they continue to learn more about themselves, more about the world and more about You. Allow them to be the light in dark places and to be the friend to those who are less fortunate than them. Give them the courage to stand up for You and to set amazing examples for kids who have never been introduced to you. We pray that they respect our teachers and school faculty. That they honor them and the hard work that they do. We pray for our teachers and for their new year of new faces sitting eagerly and ready to learn in their classrooms. We pray that you give them the encouragement to wake up each day and know that You have entrusted them with Your children. We pray that each day, they take this responsibility and gift serious and that they walk in grace with this honor. We pray that on days they feel exhausted, beat up and discouraged that you would send a shining light and a bold reminder that You see them and you are walking with them. We pray that you speak through these teachers when they encounter difficult situations or difficult students and that you give them words of grace, kindness and wisdom. We pray that You bring others into their lives to walk along side them and to pour into them. We thank you for our teachers. We each owe everything to them and to the job well done that they have done and will continue to do. Bless these students and teachers Lord and allow them to see your thumb print on this next school year! Protect them, love on them and guide them Father, God!
In Jesus Name, AMEN!
Blessings on a new school year!
