A Prayer of Protection for Children Attending School
Father in Jesus’ name I confess Your Word this day concerning my children as they pursue their education and training at school. You are effectually at work in them, creating within them the power and desire to please You. They are the head and not the tail, above and not beneath.
I pray that my children will find favour, good understanding and high esteem in the sight of God and their teachers and classmates. I ask You to give my children wisdom and understanding as knowledge is presented to them in all fields of study and endeavour.
Father I thank You, for giving my children an appreciation for education and helping them to understand that the Source and beginning of all knowledge is You. They have the appetite of the diligent, and they are abundantly supplied with educational resources; and their thoughts are those of the steadily diligent, which tend only to achievement. Thank You that they are growing wisdom and knowledge. I will not cease to pray for them, asking that they be filled with every good work.
Father I thank You that my children have divine protection since they dwell in the secret place of the Most High. My children trust and find their refuge in You and stand rooted and grounded in Your Love. They shall not be led astray by philosophies of men and teaching that is contrary to truth. You are their Shield and Buckler, protecting them from attacks or threats. Thank You for the angels whom You have assigned to them to accompany, defend and preserve them in all their ways of obedience and service. My children are established in Your love, which drives all fear out of doors.
I pray that the teachers of my children will be Godly men and women of integrity. Give our teachers understanding hearts in order that they might walk in the ways of piety and virtue, revering Your Holy Name. Amen
