Loving Lord I give my child into Your hands today – and every day, as they set off on this new journey of discover - as they start a new school today. Father may all may go smoothly for them and indeed for all who will be in the class today. I pray that You will undertake for the little things that can so often go wrong or cause little ones problems or worries.
Father I have sought to bring up my child in the way they should go and diligently taught them the truth of Scripture and that Jesus is their Saviour Who died for their sins and rose again so that by believing on Him they will receive everlasting life…and to turn to You for all their needs and necessities, but Lord at times I feel that the current school system has strayed so far away from the truth of the gospel and I am concerned that they are not led away from all that they have learned throughout their early years of their life.
So Lord I pray that you would protect my child’s heart and mind as they attend this new school – that You would bring Christian teachers and other children into their lives who have the same Christian values that we hold so dear. Protect my child’s mind and may their trust in Jesus be strengthened and grow as they start to attend school.
Lord You have promised, that if we train up a child in the way that they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it… I claim this promise today and every day ..and ask that You would help me to reinforce the truth of the gospel in the days that lie ahead and that my little one will grow strong in the faith and that their school education will help to reinforce rather than weaken their trust in the Lord Jesus, in Whose name I pray,
Heavenly Father how I praise and thank You for the heritage and gift of children and for bringing my own precious child to this important milestone in their life - the first day at school!
Lord I pray that You would be with them and that You would be there every moment of the day to care and protect – and Lord for all those that are starting school for the first time. Take away any fears or concerns they may have and develop a desire to make new and exciting discoveries.
Give the teachers wisdom and grace to help and cherish each child so that they may settle down and enjoy all that comes with constructive learning. I pray that my own precious little one will make friends and not feel lonely and that each child.
Help me Lord not to be concerned, but to leave my child in Your hands knowing that You have promised to be there every moment of the day – thanks You Lord in Jesus name I pray,
Loving Lord I give my child into Your hands today – and every day, as they set off on this new journey of discover - as they start a new school today.
Father you know all the little fears and troubles that can flood the mind of a young child in unfamiliar surroundings and I pray that you would give me the wisdom to prepare my little one beforehand so that they are not faced with any unforeseen events for which they have not been prepared and which could frighten them. Lord I do ask that You would be close by, for they have been taught from being very young to trust You and to tell you the things that scare or confuse them. Lord I pray – especially during these early days that they will pass with no such problems, but that You would guard their little heart and be an ever present help throughout the whole day.
Lord I pray for the teachers too, that You would give them an understanding heart and a caring disposition. I pray that they may be quick to identify and deal with any of the little problems that may arise during the day – knowing that they can so quickly become mountains in the mind of a child, unless they are dealt with quickly and quietly.
I pray that as I deliver my child up into the care of another today that Father You would remain close to us both – that I would know Your peace in my heart and have that peace and assurance that you will be encamped round about my child every moment of the day – and so Lord.. into Your hands I give my child today as I rest in Your precious, promises, in Jesus name I pray,
Dear Lord Jesus, I thank You that I can always turn to You – and Father today it is quite difficult as I am about to leave my little child at a new school for the first time and I think that my reservations far exceed those of my child – and so I pray that You would be with them throughout the day as their caring Shepherd and – and Lord be with me so that I may rest in You too.
I pray that they will not get lost in the school corridors, or forget which is their classroom. I pray that they will not lose any of their equipment or feel frightened when they are not sure what to do or where to go. I pray that they will find friends in their class and that You will keep them from worrying if there have not got exactly the same equipment as the other children may have.
I pray that You would give the teacher a gracious attitude towards each child the wisdom and compassion to notice any one that may be fearful or afraid. Lord more than anything I pray that You would be with each child throughout the day and that this experience may be a stepping stone in the journey of life, which will be overshadowed and undergirded by you – every step on the way.
Give me courage to let go of my own children and to trust them into Your perfect care… and may this be an opportunity for us both to draw ever closer to you with every passing day in Jesus name I pray,
Heavenly Father, I continue to thank You for my children and the different stages that each one is passing through and Lord I pray that as they pass through each season of their education, You would be there to lead and guide and to protect and sustain.
Keep them safe today as they start a new school and a new class with new teachers and children – and Lord knowing that they are stepping our into the unknown I pray that You would be with each of them – to watch over them and protect them from harm. Lord I pray that they will not be harmed by unkind or careless words of children of staff and that they would demonstrate a truly loving spirit – as they keep their eyes on You.
Protect them from both staff and students who seek to undermine the faith of Christians in a new school, but rather give them the wisdom to be able to answer wisely and not to be intimidated or threatened when their faith is challenged - as seems to be happening more frequently these days..
Keep them from worldly ways and the enticements of the flesh and guard and guide their walk and protect their faith in Christ their Savour – especially when they are challenged over what they believe and protect them from those that would seek to bully them for their faith. Bring into their lives other Christian staff and students and give them the strength and wisdom to walk day by day with You and bring draw them ever closer to You day by day, I pray, in Jesus name
