A Back to School Prayer

Gracious Father,

I thank you for the schools of learning which are opening their doors for another term. Please bless the millions of children and young people who are beginning a new school year, and fill them with a love for learning and with a desire to develop their gifts to serve You. Bless their teachers with true wisdom and with love for You, and keep them from teaching anything which might harm the proper moral and spiritual development of the students entrusted to their care. Make all schools nurseries of useful knowledge, and fill all educators and students with a sense of devotion toward You.

Hold your protecting hand over the Chrsitian schools of our country and the world. Give the teachers in these schools a deep insight into Your saving word, and make them effective witnesses for You: convincing teachers of Your Word, and wise counselors to the immature. May their testimony and teachings bring peace and comfort to their countless hearts. Increase the number of Christian schools and teachers, and make them an ever greater power in the building of Your Kingdom.

Lord, bless and protect the Christian students and teachers in the public schools. Do not let them be pressured to hide their light under a bushel, but rather encourage them and fill them with an unvanquishable passion to bring more people to You. Help our schools teach in accordance with the infinitely wise principles of Your word.

Help students and teachers to see all knowledge in relation to You. Grant that they may use their knowledge in developing the resources of the earth according to Your will and for the benefit of all people. Give us all the true wisdom which finds its joy in You and in the salvation which we have through Jesus Christ.

Amen.

Only bless the Christian kids? Or was that meant as "Bless the Christian kids more"? What about the Jewish kids, the Muslim kids, the pagan kids? Any blessings for them?
