Back to School Prayer

by | Aug 24, 2009 | Prayer

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.

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. Amen
David Bennett
