Kindergarten prayer

{via pass the cereal}

I joined a new {to me} group at church and am really excited about it!  Mom’s in Touch is an organization for mother’s to gather and pray for our children and schools.

I’ve been wanting to be a part of the group for a year or so now … but they meet on various Tuesday’s throughout the month, and Tuesday’s were always my day off from the store to stay home with the girls.

In Wynter’s Sunday school recently, all the kindergarten mom’s received a “kindergartner mom’s survival kit” with some tissues, ‘kisses,’ and this beautiful poem:

As you pack your child’s lunch bag, pray.
Pray she will hunger for God’s word daily.
As your child climbs the huge steps in the bus,
and you wave goodbye, pray.
Ask God to keep his feet on the path of righteousness always.
As the day goes on and you wonder what she’s doing, pray.
Ask your Heavenly Father to protect her.
As you look over the papers he brings home each day, pray.
Pray that his mind will grown in knowledge of the Lord.
As you empty the backpack and find scraps of paper,
bits of crumbs and pieces of broken pencil, pray.
Pray that God will take any broken pieces from the day
and bring healing and wholeness.

Don’t you love this?  I loved it too much not to share … so I typed it up, printed it out, packaged it up {all cute like …} and sent it on to my other favorite kindergartner mom.

The last three weeks of Kindergarten homeschool we have been reciting The Lord’s Prayer during Bible class. My daughter’s favorite way to learn this passage of Scripture was making a Lord’s Prayer mini book of her own. (Which she insists on keeping “forever” of course.) Her second favorite way to learn this Prayer is by singing the scripture song:

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
For ever and ever.

I’ve never understood why moms cry on the first day of kindergarten.

Until this past week when I sent my own son to kindergarten.

The big day! I forgot to print off the cute sign I pinned like 6 months ago. Had to make mine at the last minute with some old cardboard and a Sharpie.

The morning of, I was too consumed with packing his lunch, leaving on time, finding a parking spot, remembering where his classroom was, etcetera, to think about crying.

In fact, I was on my way out of the classroom tear-free and feeling great!

When I heard him…

He wasn’t crying. He wasn’t calling out for me.


I heard his little voice say, “Hi, I’m Colt. Nice to meet you.”

I turned back briefly to see his tiny hand extending toward another boy.

I was choking back the tears.

Trying to make it to the car before publicly bawling.

No WAY was I going to the Boo-Hoo Breakfast! (So the PTA could capture me ugly-crying for the yearbook? I don’t think so.)

I realized that kindergarten was the start of something new for Colt.

He was becoming his own person.

He was putting himself out there – vulnerable to disappointment.

What if someone didn’t like him? Or peer-pressured him? Or took advantage of his naiveté.

Or worse, what if he did those awful things to someone else?

I made it to work before losing my sh&t.

But then my coworker asked how it went…

Annnnnnnnnd I became the sobbing, blubbering mess I thought I’d never be.

I sat down at my desk and prayed.

Dear God,

Please let Colt be invited to sit at someone else’s (anyone’s??!!!) lunch table, and remind him to invite others to his.

(Also, if you could somehow make sure he actually eats his lunch, that would be a MIRACLE.)

Help him make good friend choices (like maybe not the first grader with the pack of cigarettes?)

Prepare him for disappointment and encourage him to be resilient.

Give him the confidence to be a leader (but not as bossy as his mother.)

Help him to know when to stand up for himself and when to walk away.

(And please help him remember NOT to use his ninja moves inside the classroom!!!)

Teach him to be cautious, but not afraid.

Remind him to be thankful for what he has (even if he doesn’t have the latest light-up tennis shoes, or a pet lizard, or a Range Rover, like the cool kid in class.)

But most of all, help his mother, Lord.

Help me to appreciate that my son is healthy, and happy, and that I’m lucky enough to be sweating the small stuff.

Help me to let him go, Lord.

Just a little.

(And should I be unable to do these things – maybe help me find a good psychiatrist?)


It is also not uncommon for a -indergarten to hold both types of morning assembly, where the classroom assembly follows after.

Elementary, Middle and High School

6rom elementary school onwards, the number of students in each school tend to increase by almost twice the number compared to -indergartens. &s the ratio of teacher to student decreases, morning assemblies that gather the whole school community together becomes the preferred, if not the only, type of morning assembly. 0&nnouncements made once to anentire school group pro’ide uniform explanation, whereas repetition in dierent rooms permits ‘ariations 2*3, thus ma-ing this type of morning assembly more popular than the other. %imilar to how it5s held in -indergartens, achie’ements of students are celebrated and information isshared. $owe’er, more emphases is put on the latter and student in’ol’ement is increased. %chool assemblies can also be held indoors
