Need some back to school prayers to share with parents in your church? Here are two prayers for students that I share with the parents in our children’s ministry.
One is a prayer that parents can pray with their child. The other is a prayer that parents can pray for their child. Feel free to use and share these back to school prayers!

A Back to School Prayer to Say With Your Child
Dear God, Thank you for ____________. As he/she begins this school year,
help him/her use the talents and gifts you’ve given him/her to do his/her very best.
May he/she listen to his/her teachers with respect.
Help him/her be honest if he/she is ever tempted to cheat.
Help him/her always tell the truth, be kind to everyone at school,
and treat others as he/she would like to be treated.
Help him/her make good friends and be a good friend to others.
And help him/her remember that You’re always with him/her

May he/she love You and follow You with all his/her heart, soul, and strength.
In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
