Prayers for a good day at school

by Gela ()

Please pray for me as I have been struggling in nursing school. I desire to care for my brothers and sisters in Christ. This is where my heart is. I have not been doing well on tests, but I know that I can do it with God’s help.

I know He has amazing plans for all of us. Please pray that I will stay motivated and that I will be able to pull up my average. I have one more unit test and I am depending on this to help me obtain a passing grade.

I know that I am not the only one struggling with school out there, so I ask that you please keep all students, especially those who are in the same situation as I am, in your thoughts and prayers as well.

Thank you so much. May God bless each and every one of us.

It’s that time of year where new clothes are purchased and organized  supplies are awaiting the big event; the first day of school.

Whether you or not you are sad to see the summer come to a close, a new school year is upon us all.

It’s a fresh slate and a time of new opportunities.

Prayer plays an vital role in human life. It becomes a link between God and man where the human can share his/her feelings of thanks, request and even praying for the well being of others. In schools/ colleges children need to be taught the values of and power of prayer. It is good have a set of prayer for primary/KG kids that makes them pray every day at school. This one such models I have just given for the school kids. This prayer could be used in the everyday’s assembly so that the kids at the young age itself learn the habit of praying. This is only  a model you can always have you own set of prayers according to your school environment. Praying every day will make the child to start the day with presence of almighty power.
