Churches across America and around the world are now celebrating the beginning of a new school year by blessing the backpacks of students. In the event your child or grandchild, niece or nephew is unable to attend the service blessing, please take the opportunity to bless the backpack carried to school by your special child of God.
Father, I ask that You please bless this backpack and Your child who carries it. May the child who wears it attend school each day with a fully open mind and loving heart for learning. As each school day passes and lessons are learned about the beautiful Earth You have created, may this child be ever thankful for the opportunity to explore new things and to grow in mind, body and spirit because of You. May all the child’s teachers mindfully encourage and nourish the flowering of the gifts You instilled in this child, this student and young servant of Christ. Amen
If you like this prayer, please share.
