A bit of a blast from the past, Prayers for School from our September 2009 issue. We hope you find this helpful for the kids you love:

For the first day of school:

Dear God, thank you for this new school year and for the opportunity to learn new things. Help me to show your love to the people I’m with each day. Amen.

At the beginning of the day:

Thanks, God, for this new day! Help me remember that no matter what happens, you are with me. Amen.

Before a test:

God, help me to be calm and careful and to remember the things I’ve learned. Help me to do my best. Amen.

At the end of the day:

Thanks for being with me today, God! Thank you for the things I learned and the friends I was with. Amen.

When you’ve had a hard day:

Dear God, sometimes it’s hard to understand why days like today happen! Thank you for being with me, even on the hard days. Help me to see if there are things I can do to make tomorrow a better day. Amen.

For your teacher:

God, thank you for teachers who work hard to help kids, especially for my teacher, (say your teacher’s name). Be with and bless all the teachers at my school. Amen.

For others who work at your school:

Thank you, God, for all the people who work to keep my school clean and safe and fun! Amen.
