Prayers for the start of school

After the festival was over, while his parents were returning home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but they were unaware of it… After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers. ~ Luke 2:43,46,47

Bless the start of the school year
Lord Jesus, bless the start of this new school year. Bless students and teachers. As you sat at the feet of teachers in the temple when you were a 12-year old boy, so may our children sit at the feet of their teachers and grow in wisdom and love. Let your word be a lamp to their feet and a light for their path now and for the rest of their lives. Amen.

Thank you for our teachers
Lord, we thank you for our teachers. You yourself were a teacher. You know what a difficult task it can be. Use our teachers as your mouthpiece. Give them joy in their labors. Help their students to respect and obey them. Help parents to show their appreciation. Give our teachers extra strength, love, and patience as they begin this new school year. Amen.

Summer Prayer

Heavenly Father, as we look around us at the beauty of summer, you have once again shown us all your wonderful blessings. We know that you have provided much more than just our daily needs, and the pleasure of enjoying your creation. We thank you for so generously giving us your son, Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Through him you have showered us with the blessings of forgiveness, a purpose in life, and eternal life in paradise—no strings attached. For all these blessings, may we truly be thankful, dear Lord. Amen.

Independence Day Prayer ~ July 4th

Gracious Lord, wonderful God, we praise you for the blessings of living in a free country. Help us to acknowledge that the greatness and prosperity of the United States are gifts from you. Help us use these gifts to lead people everywhere to the knowledge of true freedom: unconditional forgiveness of sins through faith in Jesus Christ.  Thank you that we have the liberty to worship you, the Creator of the Universe, in our homes and churches. Where people in the world are not free to worship you openly and without persecution, give them strength of faith to persevere, knowing they will attain life everlasting with you in heaven. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen

…Christ Jesus our Lord. In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence. ~ Ephesians 3:11b-12
