Dear Heavenly Father,
For all the children returning to school, send your Holy Spirit as their guide and protector. Keep them free from danger and unnecessary harm. Put our sons and daughters in the right place, at the right time, to receive your grace. Let them learn and grow strong. May the presence of your Spirit fill their hearts. Help us to mature as parents and caregivers. Bless every family, Lord. We entrust our children to you, dear God. Since, from the beginning, they are yours to keep.
We as this in the name of your most holy Son, Jesus Christ.
