Prayer for School Personnel

"For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding"
Proverbs 2: 6 (NKJV)

As educators and other school personnel prepare to welcome their students back to school, let's remember them in prayer:

Dear LORD God in Heaven, we approach your throne of grace on behalf of all the schools around the world, trusting You for the education received in each one. Guide and protect each teacher, professor and instructor. Give them a passion for the subjects they teach. Bless them with wisdom and patience for their students. Fill them with your joy and peace. Grant them the resources needed to purchase curriculum, books, and supplies. Fill the libraries with good books and bless the librarians to select materials that teach honorable principles.

LORD, bless and protect the support staffs of each school including:
  • School Boards of Education
  • Principals
  • Clerical staffs
  • Maintenance and cleaning staffs
  • Yard and landscape workers
  • Food preparers and servers
  • Bus drivers
  • School nurses
Surround each school and university with a hedge of YOUR Protection. Send legions of Your angels to guard each facility and purify the atmosphere. Send Holy Spirit discernment where evil is present.

Our institutions of learning are a gift from YOU and we give You praise and thanksgiving for them!

Let the precepts in Your Word return to the classroom.

Thank you, LORD, for hearing our prayer. In the Name of our blessed Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ...Amen.

Please join your prayers to ours in the "Comments" section. I love your praying hearts!


  1. Lord, I pray your traveling mercies for all the students and faculty returning to school.

  2. Hi Mrs. Volentine-Thank you so much for your prayers for our country and our leaders. Thank you especially for your prayers for teachers (since my husband is one). Tragedy was barely averted in Florida this week in one of the schools there. Someone was praying for the safety of their children and their families. I miss you and Amy and hope you are doing well. Thank you again and I will pray too. My 4 grandchildren were here with my daughter for the last month and they are being raised righteously by good parents who love God and His Son.
