How to pray for high schoolers —

By CIY Staff

Lord in Heaven, 

Hear our prayers for high schoolers. Please reveal your presence in students’ lives in new and powerful ways.


Remind them who they are in your eyes and that their interests, achievements and mistakes do not define them. Reveal to them ways to do Kingdom work in their schools.


We ask you to guide and protect students as they experience learning, explore social circles and discover new depths of their faith. Let high schoolers be your light to their peers, teachers and other staff members of their schools. We know your mighty hand in even the smallest of actions cannot go unnoticed.


We ask you to ease students’ hearts and minds when schedules become overwhelming. Let your peace fill their spirits when the work is hard, and pressures persist. Allow students to experience your presence in the busiest of times, and to always prioritize you.


In Jesus’ precious name we pray,


Amen.
