Dear God, with a new school year upon us, we pray for our
, that You would ease their anxiety about going back to school amidst the pandemic. We pray for safety for those returning to in-person classes, and for the needed technology, self-discipline, and adult oversight for those learning online. Would you ensure that every child has enough to eat, a supportive network of friends and family, and perseverance to face every challenge with Your strength?
PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS
, that You would grant them wisdom about which schooling option to choose. We pray for your provision physically, spiritually, emotionally, and financially. We pray for a support system that they can turn to when the challenges of life are overwhelming. We pray for churches and believers to surround local families with more prayer and support this year than ever before.
TEACHERS AND SCHOOL STAFF
, that You would grant them supernatural peace and discernment. We pray for wisdom for school district leaders, and for the safety of every staff person on every school campus. May the community rally around our schools to provide the sanitation, supplies, and emotional support needed by our teachers and school staff as they educate our children.
In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
Grant me the humility to know when to ask for help in this time.
Help me to remember that as Catholics we are more than individuals.
We are a community of faith.
We belong to a community of saints.
Allow me the wisdom to ask for what I need from the people who can help me.
