Parents prayer for students

Dear Lord,

As my children leave for school,

 I pray that you will keep them in your care.

Send your spirit to open their minds to all that is true and beautiful and good.

Help them to see the gifts and talents that you have given them and use them well.

Help them grow in knowledge and wisdom.

Help them to be kind to others and lead others to be kind to them.

Give their teachers patience and understanding and help them teach what is just and true.

Send your angels to guide and guard my children and to keep them from all harm.

Open their hearts to your presence and enfold them in your peace and protection.

Hold them in the palm of your hand and bring them home safely at the day's end.


This prayer came from Sally's school and I loved it so much that I wanted to share it with you all.

Blessings to all of our children,  May they have a safe, happy and flourishing new school year.

Have a fantastic Tuesday.
