#1 Thing kids need as they go back to school?
As we prepare our kids with new clothes, shoes, backpacks and school supplies we REALLY NEED to cover our kids with prayer! Our kids need prayer, our schools need prayer , our teachers need prayer, our coaches and school board need prayer!
I am providing MANY different resources to cover our kids thoroughly in prayer. I am aware that we don’t NEED to do rote prayers or pre written prayers but I find that they are a great for remembering certain things I want to cover specifically and then I can bounce off from there as I’m led. I will often print out the prayers to keep in my Bible and to keep some in my purse and car. I like to use my downtime (waiting at lights, doctors, etc,) productively. I’ll put my prayers out and read one or two whenever I can.
I did a blog series a year or so ago on Praying for our Children. I created a calendar with specific prayers to pray for each day. You can find those prayers below the calendar.
Download the calendar here
Here are specific prayers to pray each day.
I also found the following prayers for different areas related to school/learning, etc.
- Prayer for our students
- Praying for our kids from head to toe
- Prayers for our children and our schools
- Prayers for Teachers, Students and Schools
- Prayers for a Parent’s Heart
- Prayers for our Children’s Education
- Ultimate List of Prayers for Homeschoolers (this is for homeschoolers but could be applied to any child)
- Praying for your Child with Special Needs
- Prayers for Athletes and Coaches
Here are a couple printable prayer sheets. I love to journal and I love to see things written down, it definitely helps me remember what I do write down. Because of that I LOVE prayer sheets where I can
Make sure to check out my Who I am in Christ Scripture cards. These are great to throw in your car or purse and review them during your down time.
I want to challenge you to be diligent about praying for your children. If you aren’t doing it who is??
