Prayers and Blessings for Back to School

As I write this, a lot of the back to school plans are up in the air because of the COVID-19 virus. Some districts are starting the new year in person, with modifications, some are offering a remote option, some are trying a hybrid model, and others are homeschooling, many for the first time. 

The one consistent thing that I’m hearing from parents and educators all over the world is this: it’s different, hard and often overwhelming. 

I wrote these prayers to give you and your family words when it feels like there are no words to say. My philosophy is that prayer with children should be simple, honest, and leave room for us to listen to God’s voice and our own intuition. Some of the prayers read like mantras or affirmations, others address God simply and directly. Use them however you feel is most beneficial for your family.
