Back to School Prayer for Students

“Heavenly Father, thank you for allowing us to see another new school year. I commit these students before your able hands. Watch over them as they go out and come back. There are many dangers around us, but when they are covered in your loving arms, nothing will harm them.

I believe and pray that their mind, body, and souls will be protected. No sickness will overtake them for good health will be their portion, in Jesus’ name.

Keep them away from negative peer pressure and temptations that may destroy their life. May they know you and follow you. I pray this in Jesus’ name, amen.”
