On average, a child attends school for at least 6 hours per day, five days per week. Because these 6 hours contain so much, it is critical to devote yourself or your child to the Lord before going to school.
When it comes to academics, friendships, and other school activities, the school can be really difficult. These difficulties can be so overwhelming that a student may decide to drop out.
Saying a prayer before school can help you get through the tough parts of school, so we’ve compiled a selection of back to school prayers covering a variety of topics. This includes prayers for your teachers and friends, prayers to help you concentrate in school, prayers to protect you from harm, and more.
