Prayers for Schools
Prayers for the beginning of a school year
Prayer for the end of the school year
God our Father,
we praise and thank you for the gift of this school year,
a time filled with grace and blessings,
opportunities and challenges.
With the fulfilment of our summer hopes and dreams,
watch over us in the weeks of rest ahead.
Guide us each day
and help us to return to school
with a new refreshed spirit and energy
to continue in our journey of enjoyment, achievement and learning.

The Lord’s Prayer
put together by the children of Green Oak CofE Primary School, Godalming
Our Father in heaven, you are awesome!
Show us who you are and how you want us to be.
Make earth more like heaven.
Please give us what we need to keep going each day.
Help us know when we are wrong and clean us up on the inside.
Help us to let other people off and move on.
Keep us safe from bad stuff.
You’re in charge!
You’re strong and powerful and always there.
