New School Year
School is starting and I can’t think of a better time to pray for our students, teachers, and administrators. Before we do anything else, let’s commit to spending time with the Lord as their new journey begins. To get us started I am providing you with three prayers for the new school year.
As an educator, colleague and mama of a teacher, I am admittedly excited about a fresh start. There is so much promise to a new year. Please join me as I stand shoulder to shoulder with parents and friends to pray for protection, wisdom, honesty, kindness, and servant leadership.
May God continue to bless our schools with incredible educators and administrators who help prepare students for their next steps.
Time to Pray
Take time with me today and everyday to pray for, and lift up each group of individuals mentioned here. Use these three prayers for the new school year to get you started, and remember our prayers don’t need to be long, to be heard.
Pray for Students
Dear Lord, I come to you on behalf of our students who are starting their journey in a new school or a new place. May each one feel secure in Your arms and be surrounded by a support system that is pleasing to You. Please sharpen their minds, give them courage to learn and help them to shine in their environment. Father I pray they are a gentle, loving, and kind individual who thinks of others, before themselves. May they turn to You in times of need and in times of praise and gratitude. Please help each student follow the path that You have set before them and may they be an encouragement to friends who may not know you as their personal savior. Fill them with abundance and light as they make their way to their classrooms and schools. Amen.
Pray for Teachers
Father God, I come to you this morning asking for your protective hand over each of these individuals. I pray for our teachers as they dedicate their lives to educating children. Please bless them with strength, commitment, a strong sense of purpose, and favor with students and parents. Equip them with wisdom, endurance, joy, creativity and patience. Give them the ability to love like you, Lord. Use these teachers to make an eternal difference in the lives of their students. I pray that our parents and families feel Your grace and peace as their children embark on this new adventure. Amen.
Pray for School Administrators
Heavenly Father, I come to you today on behalf of our school administrators as they care for our students and teachers. I pray for godly leaders who show their love for every student and teacher as Christ shows His love for us. Lord, I pray for your protection and guidance as they make decisions to serve the children of these districts. I pray for every decision to honor and glorify You and Your Kingdom. Thank You for helping us as parents to support our schools and lift up those who we trust with our greatest gifts. May we give back in a mighty way. In your name I pray. Amen.
Prayers and blessings for a great new year!

Mitzi, thanks for doing this. I’m a homeschooling mom, but use to teach in a public school. And prayers like these need to be submitted to Jesus on a daily basis!!
Thank you Denise! I am so appreciative of your kind words and thankful for everyone who offers prayers on behalf of our students, teachers, and administrators. Give me a day or so and check back–I’m linking a special handout with the prayers for printing. Bless you.
