A Prayer for the New School Year


Dear Lord,

As a new school year begins, we acknowledge our need for your wisdom, grace, and guidance in our lives and those of our students. We thank you that you love us, have a wonderful plan for our lives, and are working all things together for our good. Thank you for the new things we will learn this year. I pray for both students and teachers, that you will open our eyes to the marvelous things you have created, bring us to a greater realization of how precious we are to you, and help us develop our God-given abilities to serve this world that you love dearly. Let us know your direction when we are confused, your comfort when we are grieving loss, your power in our weakness, and your reassuring presence when we are feeling anxious. We love you, praise you, and pray that you will be glorified in our lives. Amen.

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And don’t lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, And he will direct your paths.” (Prov. 3:5,6)
