back to school prayers 1230046_540085746062478_2122145817_n

Our children our returning back to school all over the country. Our youth our headed back to college campuses and some are leaving home for the first time. Let’s pray for back to school prayer protection. Last week I mentioned that we need to cry out in united prayer for our children and schools saying “Lord bless our children and the schools they attend”, See Lam 2:19 .  Through prayer, families, our children’s lives, and our world can be changed.

Along with daily prayer rallies and prayer meetings around the country, Moms in Prayer , International will hold its seventh annual Bless Our Schools Sunday, September 18,2016. Every year on the third Sunday in September, churches around the world pray for the schools, teachers, staff, and students in their congregation.

There is no doubt that “Moms In Prayer  International” (MIPI) founded by Fern Nichols, a group of mothers around the country   have been going before the throne of  God.  A diversified group of mothers of MIPI serve as prayer warriors who battle in the spiritual realm for the lives of children and teenagers as they go off to school for at least one hour every week. They are women united with one purpose: a passion to pray for their children. The mission of Moms in Prayer International is to impact children and schools worldwide for Christ by gathering mothers to pray.

Through prayer, our lives, our children’s lives, and our world can be changed.

Believe that intercessors can change your school district with the weapon of prayer. Believe that positive results will occur such as peace and safety, better test scores, higher graduation rates,   and more school funds to meet the needs of our children. Pray that student-led prayer groups will spring forth.  Let’s challenge ourselves to daily pray for the safety of our children and that God will deliver them from evil and thwart every scheme of the enemy.

I know that many intercessors already have prayer assignments from the Lord. But I would challenge  the intercessors, parents and teachers to ask Him if He might also want you to “adopt” a public school for your prayer agenda.


Action Plan :

Pray for the school your child attends as you drive your child to school . Pray for a school in your neighborhood and/or adopt a school to daily pray for throughout the school year. Encourage your children to pray for their school and teachers.

How many of you will join with me to begin praying for your child or grandchild’s school or college today. Join with me now!

How should we pray?  Below is one prayer for school safety and protection. Next week we will pray for their academic study. See a few prayer points from last week’s  post.


Here’s a prayer for the safety of your children.

A Prayer for Your Child’s Protection and Safety.

Heavenly Father, you are the sure defense of our children, you are the rock of refuge, their high tower, and their protector. How I praise you and thank you for the certain knowledge I have that you care for my child, you will be with him/her always and you will keep him/her from the evil one.

Lord, you saved Israel from the hands of the enemies time and time again. You delivered your people and helped them to dwell in safety. Be a very present help to my son/ daughter__________________(state their name )as he/she goes out to play, goes to school, attends college and faces the challenges and responsibilities in our society. Lord build a hedge of protection all around the school building, playground, bathrooms, classroom and hide them under the protection of your wings as in Psalm 91in the name of Jesus.

Keep our home safe from all fear and dispatch your angles to protect my children at school,on campus, on the playground, on the bus and walking home from school. Uphold my child, ______according to your Word, Lord, so that he/she might truly live, experiencing the abundant life you have promised to all who come to you. Let him/ her never be ashamed of you. Hold him/her up so that he/she will always be safe and will have respect to your statues continually. I pray that he will honor You and your Word. I thank you, Father for the promises of your Word, and that you are a shield unto them that put their trust in you. Deliver them from all who would harm them.
