Back to School Prayer

Mahalo to my friend Easter for sharing this with us.

Back to School

Praise you, Lord, for the blessing of learning.

—Catholic Prayers for Every Day and All Day

Christ’s love and our faith in that love should pervade everything we do—work, study, play.

-St. John Bosco


We pray for all students

That they may learn and study

With Christ’s wisdom and understanding

And use all knowlege to make this world

A better place to live.

We pray for all parents and teachers

That they may bring to the children

The love of God first

Then love for God next.

With Christ as the anchor of learning

We shall prevail

And achieve that which Christ

Has planned for each child He brings

To this world.

We pray with Mary,

In her Son’s name, Jesus,


-Easter A.
