Prayer for Patience
Lord, please give me the patience throughout the day to listen and guide my children. Calm my body and mind when tension arises and give me the words of encouragement.
Prayer for Wisdom
Lord give me the understanding to respond to my children and the wisdom to provide them with the proper guidance. “Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” Matthew 7:7.
Prayer for Strength
When I am weakened and unsure, give me the strength to rise against obstacles and challenges. Remind me that I can accomplish all things through you. “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” Isaiah 40:31.
Prayer for Balance
Help me Lord to find balance in my life. Help me manage my home, school, family, work, and all the other obligations within my week. When my schedule feels overwhelming, please ensure me that I am in control and give me the energy to continue through my day.
Prayer for Inspiration
Lord fill me with inspiration so that I can inspire, encourage and build up those around me. “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.” Thessalonians 5:11
Prayer for Listening
Lord hold my tongue before I speak and open my ears. Remind me that listening requires comprehension and not just hearing of sound. Help me to listen genuinely, so that I can adequately guide.
Prayer for Energy
Motivate me to accomplish all that you have planned for me. When I am overcome with exhaustion give me the energy to proceed.
Prayer for Creativity
Help me to inspire my children through creativity. When the day seems dull, help me to bring creativity into my home to shine a light on our day.
Prayer for Being Receptive
Lord help me to be more receptive to those around me. If a suggestion is presented to me, help me to be considerate of everyone’s advice.
Prayer for Health
Lord, please keep my family and me healthy through these coming days. Shield us from illness and heal us if we do become sick.
A new school year brings forth a new beginning. Take time to celebrate this new adventure in your family and use these prayers to keep you focused and motivated throughout these coming weeks and months. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” Philippians 4:6
