A Prayer for a New School Year

A Back To School Prayer


This prayer may be used before a new school year starts or at opening assemblies, meetings, and ceremonies. This "back to school" prayer was originally written for an assembly at a Catholic school and has been used many times since then. However, It may be used by any student, teacher, or family that wants to start the year off right. This prayer for a new school year has also been used at teacher meetings.

mary school Father,
We thank you for the opportunity
to begin this new school year,
and we ask that you bless
the students, faculty, and student families
that make our school a great place.
We pray that you will guide us in your ways,
so that we will seek your will
in everything that we do,
and love others as you love us.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
