Prayers for the School System

Prayer to Fill Their Hearts With Love for the Students:

Father, today I praise you for the opportunity we have for obtaining an education in our country. We are blessed to have access to schools that are well equipped with buildings and classroom tools to assist in the learning process. I don’t take that for granted when compared to many countries.

Today I lift up the administrators in the school system. I pray for their wisdom to hire the right school leaders, teachers, aids, and support staff. Oftentimes our focus is on the teachers only. Lord, I realize all educational employees play a role in the full educational process. Please touch their lives and give them a burning desire to do all with the students in mind. I pray for the maintenance people to provide for a clean and safe environment for the students. Bus drivers, cafeteria workers, and teacher assistants are a critical part of the learning process. Fill their hearts with a love for the students. Bless them as they come and go.

Lord, I want to specifically pray for the teachers who have an everyday task of pouring into the lives of the students. We ask for your wisdom and grace for the teachers as they prepare to lead their class each day. Give them a heart of compassion for all the students. Lead them by the Holy Spirit, empowering them with the skills and knowledge needed to reach each student at his/her level of learning. Bless the teacher as he/she inspires and motivates learning in the classroom. Lord, I ask that you put on the heart of every teacher to not only teach academic content but also godly character development. Teach our students to be the person you created them to be, understanding that all students are valuable.

Proverbs 22:6 tells us to “Train up a child in the way he should go; Even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Lord, I pray the complete education system provides experiences that point students in the way he/she should go in life. By the power of the Holy Spirit, our students will be molded into productive citizens with strong godly characters.

In the power of Jesus’ name, Amen.

Prayer for Curriculum With Career Focused:

Psalm 127:3 “Children are indeed a heritage from the Lord.”

Dear God,

Our schools need great prayer today. There seems to be a shift in focus away from teaching content that is related to the students’ futures. Parents throughout the nation are crying out for school reform. Lord, I place a hedge of protection around our students. Guard their hearts against anything that doesn’t glorify you.

We also pray for the teachers and staff in our schools. We ask that you bless them with wisdom, knowledge, and understanding as they pursue their education. May they do all with the best interest of the students in mind.

We pray for safety and protection over the school, that your angels would surround and guard each person on the campus. Please guard the facilities against any damage or illness infiltration. We pray there are funds to upkeep and build facilities that are conducive to learning for our students.

Lord, we prayer for unity and respect among the students and faculty, that they would work together and support one another in their studies and endeavors.

We pray that this school would be a place where your love and truth are evident, and that the students and staff would be transformed by your grace.

In your precious name we pray, Amen.

1 Timothy 4:12 “Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.”
