Prayer is the only thing that is going to get us through this challenging season of uncertainty, disappointment, and fear. So as your kids head back-to-school—whatever that may look like for you—we invite you to pray these prayers with us—believe God to bring peace and provision for your family, teachers, and community.

Back-to-School Prayers for Teachers, Students, and Parents


Dear God, Thank You for the amazing teachers who have devoted their lives to serve our children. As they navigate this unique school year, fill them with strength to lead and thrive in their classroom—whatever it may look like! Protect their bodies from illness and their spirits from weariness as they pour into the next generation through education. In Jesus’ name, Amen.


Dear God, Please help me to trust You in every detail this school year. I give You my anxiety, my fears, and every emotion that distracts me from You. I ask for a renewed sense of confidence as I trust You to help me navigate this unconventional learning experience. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.


Dear God, Today I ask for Your provision to carry my family this year. Help me rest in the fact that You are good and will take care of us. Thank You for blessing our family with everything we need and more so we can bless others. Help us to always remember the truth of Your promises when circumstances tell us otherwise. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.


Dear God, Thank You for the gift of peace. Help me to focus on You so I can walk in Your peace every day this school year. Show me how to sow peace into my family and the lives of those in our community. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.


Dear God, Thank You for keeping my children safe whether they are learning at school or at home. Please protect our hearts and minds during this confusing time, and our bodies from illness when we return to our learning community this year. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!


Dear God, Your Word says we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength. Please strengthen our family to persevere this year, no matter how unclear our path may be. Help me to be an example of Your strength as I lead my children on their learning journey. In Jesus’ name, Amen.


Dear God, It’s so easy to become impatient when life doesn’t look like we thought it would. Please help me to not rush ahead or try to take control of our seemingly chaotic school circumstances. I trust You to guide me and my children as we wait with patience. In Jesus’ name, Amen.


Dear God, Thank You for the gift of education—even when it looks unconventional. As our children adapt to new and challenging circumstances, may Your joy be their strength! I pray they would meet each day with positivity knowing that whatever comes their way, they do not have to face it alone. In Jesus’ name, Amen.,


We want YOU to know that our team is praying every day for families all over the world and the kids who are trying to navigate learning during this unique season.  We know some may actually be heading “back-to-school” and some may not . . . some may be trying homeschool this year for the first time . . . some may be navigating a hybrid approach with their school district. We’re all in different situations and yet we’re all in this together as we RETURN TO LEARN this school year. 

We hope to bring a little fun to families in the midst of this challenging time. Minno wants to support you as you return to learn this year—whatever that looks like for you.
