Prayer for a child starting school for the first time. 

Dear ………(Child’s name)

I thank God for providing the opportunity and resources for you to enroll in school. I thank God that I am alive to witness this day. 

I pray the Lord to grant you peace, courage, and strength as you spend time with other children and adults. 

And as you play and learn with them, I pray the Lord to give you divine wisdom and understanding. May the Holy Spirit continuously speak to you in that still small voice.

Remember that you are special, you are a chosen generation and a child after God’s own heart.
