It's August which means it is time to get ready to go back to school.

As a mom, you might be experiencing some back-to-school anxiety. I know I am. There are book bags to wash, new shoes to buy, and school supplies to gather. We wonder who will teach our kids this year and which friends will be in their class. We make lists and schedule our kids for after-school activities. There is so much prep work to be done to get ready to go back to school but prayer can help us accomplish our to-do lists and settle our nerves.

Praying for our kids and their teachers will not only help settle our nerves as moms but it gives our children and their teachers confidence as they begin a new year. First John 5:14-15 says, "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us - whatever we ask - we know that we have what we asked of him."

Below are two Back-To-School Prayers for Your Kids and Teachers. Feel free to share these with other moms! If you are a children's minister at your church, consider hosting a Blessing of the Backpacks or a Prayer Night to pray these prayers for your kids and teachers. May we cover our children and their teachers in prayer as we begin a new school year!

Till next time, let your light shine!

Blessings, christen
