For parents

I pray for all parents getting their children ready for going back to school, sorting uniform & all the kit they need. Especially for those who are struggling to afford it.

Prayers for anyone with a child who is fearful or really dislikes school. For all with their youngest starting school for the first time, and for all who have a child leaving home for the first time. Please give them Your peace, steady them and their children, help them trust in your care. Hold us as parents as we go through these changes to the patterns of our family life. Thank you that we know you understand our fears and struggles as parents. Amen.
