High School -

A prayer for a new school year —

By Becca Haines

Lord, 

Everyone feels differently about returning to school – some are excited, some are nervous and some are indifferent – but we ask you to make us encouraged as Kingdom workers. We need you in our lives and especially at school.

 

Ease our worries. Remind us that you’re near when we’re faced with challenging work, or when we experience conflict.

 

Celebrate with us. Let us feel the joy of the Holy Spirit when we’re surrounded by other Kingdom workers – including teachers and staff members.

 

Open our eyes. We know that school can be hard for everyone, but we ask you to show us who we need to love in our school. What heartaches are they facing? What is the worst part of their day, and how can we help?

 

This is our mission field. This is where we shine your light. Let us bring glory to your name.


In Jesus’ name we pray.

 

Amen.
