BACK TO SCHOOL PRAYER
Bless all our children going Back to School
We cover them with your wise Word—–
As they walk the wide school hallways
—-Let your gentle voice be always heard.
We declare that they'll be obedient
Not conforming to earth's fleshly ways—
But remain pure in their conduct—-
Keeping a clear conscience every day.
Keep them safe daily in their classrooms
Deliver them from all evil too—–
Let guardian angels walk beside them
——In all they say and do.
Let them walk in light as you are Light
Cleanse their hands and purify their hearts;
Increasing in favor with God and man—-
From the First Bell's Ring of each day's start.
