Gracious heavenly Father, You have blessed us with schools to educate our children. Bless our students, our teachers, our staff, and our administrators that our schools may be places where truth is taught and knowledge flourishes. May our schools be institutions where minds are nurtured to serve our communities; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Lord Jesus, You never change. You remain the same yesterday, today, and forever. As our students and all others in our schools adjust to the time change, be their Rock of refuge. By Your Holy Spirit, guide them to see Your blessings in each new day and each change that takes place in their lives; for You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Heavenly Father, bless the parents and guardians of our students. As they work to provide for our students' needs of body and soul make their efforts fruitful. Grant them wisdom to raise their children according to Your Word. As parents and children reconnect with one another over the weekend, grant to our students an attitude of appreciation for all that their parents do and provide for them; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

O Lord God, guide and direct the instruction which takes place in our schools. Bless the preparation and work of our teachers as they present the lessons to our students. Bless our students with attentiveness that they listen and learn the information presented to them. Grant that our schools be a place where useful arts and sciences increase for the welfare of our community and world; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Heavenly Father, protect with Your almighty hand all who are, or will be, traveling today. Look with mercy especially upon those who will travel to and from our schools.  Make their ways safe and bring all of us at last to the heavenly mansions prepared for us by the birth, death and resurrection of Your Son, Jesus; through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord.

O Lord, bless our schools with Your presence. We know that our teachers have the ability to open new avenues of learning for our students. Grant that they may be dedicated to striking the right spark of interest in the education of our students to mold and shape them as useful citizens; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Lord God, heavenly Father, You have blessed our students with skills, abilities and talents which they are able to use outside of the classroom in organizational, academic, talent, and athletic competitions. Bless our students with the enjoyment of working toward a common goal as an individual or as part of a team. Grant to them a positive attitude towards the competition and in their sportsmanship that they might rejoice in their successes and in the success of others. Put before them the goal and ultimate prize of eternal life granted only through faith in the death and resurrection of Your Son, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You  and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
