I lift up our children to you Father. I ask that you watch over them as their new school year begins. Please keep them safe as they travel to and from school, watch over them in the classroom Father. Help them to learn and to find peace in you during challenging times. Give them teachers, administrators and professors who lift them up and encourage them.
Watch over their classmates Father. Help them to come together and to see your light shining through our children. We pray for the teachers and staff father. Give them patience and grace and love as they go about their days. Help them to feel appreciated during the most challenging of days and allow us as parents to see where we can come along side of them.
Finally Father, I ask for guidance for us as parents. Help us to help our children. To see where we need to assist them and to know when to back off and allow them to stand on their own. Help us to partner with facilty and staff and to create homes that are a haven from the world, not only for our children, but also for their friends. Finally Father, allow us to feel the comfort that can only come from knowing that our children are in your hands while they are away from us at school.
It's in Jesus' name I pray.
