“Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
Heavenly Father, help us to remember we don’t have to be afraid because you go before us. When our children begin to feel weak, remind them of your presence, you will never leave or forsake them. You are the great defender; we call on your name to help us in our time of need. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
Heavenly Father, each school year brings new challenges. We are grateful you have not left us without help; thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit. As our children face difficulties, we ask that they lean into your strength, calling on the Holy Spirit to fill them with confidence and courage. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

“Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you.” Proverbs 2:11
Heavenly Father, our children, hear so many voices throughout their day; guide them to tune in as you speak to their hearts. We pray they make decisions with help from the Holy Spirit, clearly understanding your will and direction. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
10. A Prayer for Remembrance
“My God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge, and my savior— from violent people, you save me. “I called to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and have been saved from my enemies.” 2 Samuel 22:3-4
Heavenly Father, we desire children that know you intimately. They can trust and obey, even when they don’t understand, because they have a personal relationship with you. We are eternally grateful for saving us, and we ask if our children don’t know you, they accept you as Lord and Savior. You are worthy of all our praise. Grant us strength as we share the gospel to a lost world, guide us we aim to be salt and light for your glory. in Jesus’ Name Amen.
