I pray you every student will feel your presence in a real way this year.
I pray if they don’t feel your presence, they will seek you and discover you’re right there with them.
I pray you will surround them with peace and comfort in every new situation.
I pray when they are pressured, you will help them stand.
I pray they find one good friend, a brother or sister in Christ because it’s hard to stand alone.
I pray that 6 AM won’t come as early this year.
I pray when they fail, they will forgive themselves and try again.
I pray you will give their teachers wisdom and patience as they deal with situations.
I pray students will befriend those that are new, lonely or both.
I pray they will be a blessing to their teacher and not a curse.
I pray you will bless them with Godly teachers as you have in the past.
I pray they will have fun. But not too much, if you know what I mean.
I pray they will let their light shine, quietly or loudly, but in their own way.
I pray homework will be light and not become Home. Work.
I pray that you will help me to Pastor them throughout the year and be there for them whenever they need me.
I pray above all, God, that you would use their challenges, disappointments and victories to draw them closer to you this school year.
