Back to School Prayer - Title Page

As my two oldest kids head back to school this morning, like so many other across the country and our great state of Texas, my best wishes and prayers go with them. Let’s pray a Back to School Prayer for all students as a new school year begins this fall.

Back to School Prayer

Father of all mercies
We ask that you would bless
the youngest and littlest of learners,
the most helpless and powerless of persons,
with Your infinite and loving mercy,
granting them the strength to learn, concentrate,
and act appropriately towards their teachers and fellow students.
We also ask that You would watch over them,
at home and at school
and grant them proper direction so that they may learn
of Your wonderful virtues.
We ask this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ.


*Here’s our End of the Year School Year Prayer to keep handy for Spring.

Looking for a book of prayers?  I recommend the book “Catholic Household Blessings and Prayers” to use in your daily life.
