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.
