A Back to School Prayer for Your Kids

It’s that time again–the kids are on their way back to school. And, as you’re making lunches, I hope you’ll make time to pray for them. Here’s what we’re praying over our children. Feel free to pin, print, post and share, and join us in praying the same for yours.

In case the image isn’t showing up, here’s the text:

“As my children return to school, I pray that…

they will readily receive INSTRUCTION and be TAUGHT by the Lord,
they will eagerly DRAW near to you and LISTEN to your voice,
they will set a righteous EXAMPLE as they live out what they READ in your Word,
they will KNOW your peace and protection and you will ERASE their fears and doubts.

LEAD them by Your Spirit and empower them to WORK diligently for your glory.
ADD wisdom and favor to help them excel in the COURSE you’ve laid out for their lives.”

Let’s pray this together and watch God work in their lives. What else are you praying over your children regularly? Let’s chat about it in the comments below.
