A Prayer for School Students

It is that time of the year when our children, young adults and some of us older adults, like myself, return back to school. Exciting times are ahead, but we need to watch as well as pray! Satan has an arsenal of weapons that are aimed at us to defeat us, peer pressure, lies, doubt, worry, fear, temptation, addiction, and unforeseen crises. We are reminded in Scripture that God will never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). Philippians 1:6 states, "Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ." We are trusting God for a victorious school year for our members and their families.
 
Provided all goes well, I will graduate on December 13th with a Master of Theology degree from Campbellsville University.  As I ask you to keep me in your prayers, I also pray for everyone in school: 
 
We pray in the name of Jesus, Lord that you will go before us as we go back to school and keep us from all hurt, harm, and danger; that you will give us caring teachers, professors, and administrators to lead and guide us throughout the school year. We pray by the power of the Holy Ghost for those children who are fearful, and who are going to new schools. Lord God, reduce their fear and anxiety about their new surroundings, changing classes, and new processes and procedures. Turn their frowns upside down, oh Lord. We pray especially for the mislabeled and misunderstood children needing special attention.  Reveal the mystery of their giftedness and set them on the proper course for success.  We thank you in advance for the education of our children and for their salvation as well. We pray, too, for non-traditional adults who are trying to complete a degree while working, raising a family, and battling life's issues. Give them strength, Heavenly Father. Allow them to finish what they have started, Lord. Provide resources by Your sovereign will. You are Jehovah Jireh, our Great and Awesome Provider! You are the Way Maker, making ways out of no way! You open doors no man can shut, and shut doors no man can open. We believe that You equip the called as we walk by faith.  Proverbs 16:1 states, "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans." We commit our education to You trusting that only You know what is best for each one of us. We pray success in this school year. In Jesus name. Amen! Amen!
