A PRAYER FOR THE SAFETY OF OUR SCHOOL CHILDREN
I originally posted this prayer on December 18th, 2012 a few days after a horrific and tragic deadly school massacre in the USA.
I thought I’d post it again now that another school year has started and for various reasons, the safety of their children is once again a concern for parents in many nations.
Be encouraged to not just read the prayer, but to join your faith with other Believers and pray it, not only for your own children if you have children, but for every child the Lord lays upon your heart no matter where they are in the world.
Dear Heavenly Father,
As our children leave home for school today, cause them to arrive safely.
Assign your warring angels to guard and keep them wherever they are, whoever they are with, and whatever they are doing throughout the day.
Remove any fear from their hearts and replace it with a sense of peace, comfort and Your loving presence.
Help them to maximize and enjoy their educational experience; let not the enemy mar it in any way.
Father by Your grace we refuse to be bound by the spirit of fear, but instead trust You to keep our children safe in Your divine care.
By faith we cover them in the protective blood of Jesus from the crown of their heads to the soles of their feet and stand on Your word that no weapon formed against them shall prosper.
Father we humbly release our children to You.
Watch over them like only You can.
Thank you for bringing them safely home.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen
