A PRAYER FOR THE SCHOOL YEAR!
Updated: Aug 29
“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow (the evil plots and slanders of the wicked) that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprise and lay waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you. Only a spectator shall you be [yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High] as you witness the reward of the wicked. There shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your tent. For He will give His angels [especial] charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service]. Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never]. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.” (Psalm 91:1, 5-8, 10-11, 14-16 AMPC)
Let's pray for a hedge of protection to surround our school systems according to Psalm 91:
Lord, we pray right now that all involved in the education system will dwell in the secret place of the Most High, remaining stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty. We know that no foe can withstand Your power. We declare that You are their Refuge and Fortress, their God and they lean on and rely on You. They confidently trust in You.
We thank You that You deliver them from danger. You cover them with your pinions, and under Your wings do they trust and take refuge. Because they rest securely in You, they shall not be afraid. No matter what is going on around them it will not come near them. It has no power to touch them.
We thank You for giving Your angels charge over every single one of them, and none will be lost, left behind, or discarded. Your angels accompany, defend, and preserve them in all their ways.
Because they have set their love on You, we trust You to deliver them and set them on high. They have a personal knowledge of Your mercy, love, and kindness, so they trust and rely on You, knowing that You will never forsake them.
Thank You that when they call upon You that You answer them, and You are with them in the time of trouble. We trust You to deliver them and honor them.
We ask You to bless this school year for them. Protect every school in this nation. Let there be no acts of violence, bullying, or ostracizing. Let the students learn in peace and safety.
We declare that they have the mind of Christ. They can attain and retain knowledge. They will have a successful school year! We pray in the Name of Jesus. Amen!
