How Can We Pray for Students

While mornings can get super busy for mothers, morning prayers are essential for our kids. It’s more important than packing their food or giving them lunch money.

We can put the Armor of God on them simply with prayer as they go into the battlefield. 

Mornings are always best to pray for anything – including our kids. You can start the day with a private prayer yourself and then as the family eats breakfast, make sure to say a prayer that covers their entire day.

This simple act of inviting God into your home sets the tone for the day and ensures He is guiding you and your children. 

Saying the family morning prayers out loud gives your children an example of how to address the Lord, praise Him, and thank Him for our blessings before pouring our hearts out to him.

Morning Prayers for Students

Parents, you have an obligation to show your active students what it means to follow Jesus every day through prayer. When they leave the home, they’ll be prepared for a life with Christ. 

Morning prayers for students will set them up for success every school day. When a child is old, he/she will not depart from your Biblical teachings.

God will be their priority and they’ll rely on Him for guidance and assurance. Here are some prayer points that you can use as a guideline to start their day off right.

  • Praise God for how amazing His love is for your children.
  • Thank the Lord for the blessings of your kids.
  • Ask the Lord to forgive them of any sins.
  • Ask Him to guide their thoughts and direction.
  • Request God to build a hedge of protection around them. 
  • Petition that His Will be done in their lives. 
  • Make any special requests be known to the Lord.

As Christians, the Bible is clear that we are to continually pray without stopping. As our children grow, they will tend to gravitate toward situations that seem worrisome to mothers.

Yet, the Lord says don’t be anxious for anything, but take everything to the Lord in prayer.

Morning prayers for them are essential when they are little or big – whether it’s Kindergarten, Elementary School, High School, or College.

Here is a specific morning prayer for any student who will always need prayer, despite how old they are or even when things are going well.

Dear Heavenly Father, You are a majestic Lord, a sovereign and supreme Father, and I’m so grateful I can come before you at any time. What a privilege it is to carry everything to you in prayer. Thank you for the gift of children.

I humbly come before you today for our student. He/she needs your guidance and direction each and every day. Please put your hedge of protection around them and guide him/her to safety with each step they take. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. 

Morning Prayer for Students Going Back to School

One of the best ways you can prepare your children as a new year begins is to sprinkle them with a ton of prayer. It will give them the confidence they need and will give moms the assurance that they will be ok.

Morning Prayer for College Students

Sadly, colleges and universities have left Godly principles aside and many times, it’s a way of partying, not time to plan for the future.

Secular campuses have accepted the world’s influence and if your college-aged child is not prepared, he/she will get entangled in the web of deceit and deception. 

A Morning Prayer for College Students

We need to pray for our college students to help prepare and protect them from the enemy which is running rampant on college campuses!

Our older children need us to intercede on their behalf. Let’s help them to be shining examples of Christ all throughout the college campuses.

Dear Lord, we praise and worship you for your patience and enduring love for us. We thank you for the blessing of children, they are our heritage and joy in life.

My college child is on my mind today. Help my child remember that You are his/her answer in everything they do. Keep them from temptation, eliminate all evil from their environment.

Send good and godly friends their way for encouragement and refreshment. In everything they do, help them to give it their all in Your Name. Help them to have the courage to shine their light brightly for Jesus.  I love you Lord and praise Your wonderful name. In Jesus name, Amen
