Prior blog articles have challenged us to pray daily for our children and the schools and colleges they attend and all those who have influence upon them in the educational sphere or mountain . Also I have encouraged you to adopt a school and pray for it.  http://www.ladyofprayer.com/back-school-prayer-safety/          http://www.ladyofprayer.com/unite-cry-schools-linda-fegins/;   

We want our children to receive the very best education and to reach their full potential. Therefore we want to pray back to school prayers for children’s academic studies. Here are a few prayer points and then a prayer  for our children’s  ability to learn and study. Pray the following prayer points:

  • Pray that our children will be open to learning new knowledge and to acquire both secular and spiritual knowledge. Pray that God would give them the wisdom to know how to understand and use that knowledge and they use it rightly and for good. (Proverbs 22:6) (2 Timothy 2:15)
  • Pray for those students that are struggling academically. Ask God to encourage them and strengthen their minds. Pray that God will give their teachers and parent’s wisdom to know how to best help them learn.
  • Pray they will not feel like failures, but will learn discipline and know that God loves them. (I Thessalonians 5:14)
  • Pray that our children will be serious minded and work hard to acquire both secular and spiritual knowledge. Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)
  • Pray that the Lord encourage those children who have special needs and “who have struggled with their studies to strengthen their minds. Help the teachers and parents know how to help them learn and protect them from feelings of worthlessness and shame. ( I Thess 5:14) (from Ida Rose Heckard)
