U4H 20 Days of Prayer || Day 1

Heavenly Father,  

As we start this school year, we pray for the academic development of our students. We
know that the social-emotional pressures weighing on our students are heavy and often
keep them from focusing on their studies. We pray for environments of safety so that
our students may learn. May their burdens be easy and light. 

We pray that your Spirit will instill in our children a great love of learning, that they may
know the joy of creating, exploring, reading. May you even now, though their academic
studies, begin fostering in them passions to think deeply, solve problems, and serve
others. We thank you for all the educators who work hard to impart these academic
standards to the students, and we pray that their interactions with our students will be
marked with care and compassion. Thank you for this new year of learning. 

In the Name of the Risen Savior, 

“And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, in favor with God and man.” – Luke 2:52
