Prayers for a New School Year

Pray passionately in the Spirit, as you constantly intercede with every form of prayer at all times. Pray the blessings of God upon all his believers.
– Ephesians 6:18

As a new school year begins, let’s come together and pray for students, teachers, educators, and parents.


God we ask that you give them peace and courage as they begin a new year of classes.

Surround them with supportive and encouraging friends.

Bless their hard work over the coming months.

Surprise them with unexpected moments of joy.

Raise up this next generation of leaders and may they reflect Your love to those around them.



Thank you God for the men and women who invest in the future of our children.

Give teachers and educators wisdom, creativity, and discernment as they lead others this year.

Remind them that they are not alone and their work is not in vain.

Move in close, Lord, and let them sense Your presence and Your delight.



As change and transition begins to happen, calm any fears or anxieties.

May moms, dads, and guardians joyfully entrust their children into the hands of our loving God.

Bless their family with a strong community.

Give them Your peace, patience, and joy as they watch their student navigate a new school year.

    Thank you for this. I was scrolling and I came across this prayer for students and when I clicked on it, the 3 prayers brought me the peace and help I needed mentally. My grand baby is starting a new school that I was not expecting and I’ve been so concerned, sad, and afraid for her because she has to start all over when she just started getting adjusted and doing good at the school she was already at but these prayers comforted me and reminded me to remember who her Heavenly Father is and mine and He will take care of her. Thank you again. I’m going to write them down to remind me daily.
