Prayer Guide

This prayer guide can help you to think about what you can pray for as you do a prayer walk at school.

Pray for students, teachers, administrators, and staff you know: As you walk, think about the different people you know at school. Ask God to bring people to your mind who need your prayers. You can pray that they can:

  • Deal with the stress they feel without hurting other people
  • Make good decisions
  • Be forgiving
  • Be kind and loving
  • Be thankful
  • Have energy
  • Do a good job
  • Have an understanding of other people and be forgetful when people do them wrong
  • Have love, have joy, have peace, have patience, have goodness, have faithfulness, have self-control
  • Be thoughtful of other people
  • Do the right thing
  • Get help if they are hurting
  • Will come to know Jesus (if they are not believers)
  • Will show Jesus in what they do and say (if they are believers)

Pray for people you may not know: Along with praying for people you know, you can pray for people in the school that you don't know but God does know. Here are some of the people in schools that you can pray for:

  • Teachers
  • Principal, vice principal, and counselors
  • Secretaries, nurses, receptionists, and office workers
  • Staff in cafeteria
  • Maintenance workers
  • Crossing guards
  • Bus drivers
