Praying for the school community

School-Prayer

Here’s the thoughful prayer Duncan led this morning for everyone who is involved in the school community – and in one way or another we all are.

A prayer for the school community

Pupils and school students stand

Duncan: Lord God, we thank you for all the children and young people in our area and for the schools they attend. Help us to make the most of the opportunities we have – to be hard-working students, to play creatively and to know that you delight in us when we seek to follow you.

All: Inspire them to walk in your ways

Teachers and Classroom Assistants and other school staff stand as well

Duncan: Lord God, we thank you for teachers, classroom assistants and other people who work in and outside schools, for their enthusiasm, hard work and for all they invest in the children and young people they teach and help. Give us patience and concern for each individual pupil. Help us to make a positive difference in our school.

All: Inspire them to walk in your ways

All who work or serve in school communities stand (as school board members, SU leaders, school chaplains etc) stand as well

Duncan: Lord, we thanks you for the many people who enable schools to run smoothly and who provide a nurturing environment for our children. Help them to know their value and enjoy the work they do. Thank you for opportunities in schools to lead assemblies and run Christian groups and may those who lead them point to you, Lord of heaven.

All: Inspire them to walk in your ways.

Parents, carers and grandparents stand as well

Duncan: Lord God, we thank you for those among us who nurture the next generation. Help us to love without condition, to set boundaries with wisdom and to point to you as Creator, Saviour and Lord.

All: Inspire them to walk in your ways

Everyone stands

Duncan: Lord God, we thank you for the education we have all received. Help us to support our school communities, both those who work and those who learn, and to pray regularly for our schools and for every life being shaped there.

All: inspire us all to walk in your ways.

Amen
