Below are some prayers that you might like to share with your child(ren)
Prayer for Children:
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 in love towards
their teachers and fellow students.
We also ask that You would watch over them,
at home and at school
and give them proper direction
so that they may learn
of Your wonderful virtues
We ask this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen
Prayer for Teachers:
Grant them your strength, so they will have courage in every situation;
Grant them your love, so they never give up on anybody;
Grant them your wisdom, so they will show others the path to success;
Grant them your mercy, so they will forgive those who have hurt them;
Grant them your peace, so they will find the best in everybody;
Grant them your hope, so they will never give up;
Grant them your joy, so they will be thankful for all their blessings;
And Grant them your grace, so you will always be at their side. Amen
