Today, Lord, we pray for our children, as they leave summer behind and begin another school year.

We pray the Word of God over each one of them:

  • overall their steps - may You be a lamp for their feet and a light for their path;
  • over all their friendships - may they choose their friends wisely and may their friends refresh their souls;
  • over all their challenges - may they remember You are in their midst, the Mighty One Who saves, Who rejoices over them and Who quiets them by Your love;
  • over all their decisions may they trust in and acknowledge You, Lord, and not lean on their own understanding;
  • over all their influence - may they do everything in love, Lord, as You have loved them;
  • over all their trials - may they be strong and courageous, remembering that You go with them and will not leave or forsake them - You are their refuge and fortress;
  • over all their triumphs - may they always give thanks to You, Lord, Who gives victory through Christ Jesus.

Through every day, Lord, may they remember the privilege of an education as they dwell in Your shelter and rest in Your shadow, for You are the almighty God and Your Word stands for ever.

Amen
