Backpack Blessing

It’s that time of year again. What type of blessings have you given your children as school has started? ~ pk

Families in Faith

Place your hands on the backpack and have your children do the same – then have them repeat this prayer and blessing.

Heavenly Father,
Bless this backpack and all it contains.
Let this pack represent the coming school year and all that it entails.
Lord watch over me as I travel to school and back home.
Bless me with courage as I enter 2nd grade.
Fill me with a love of learning
and a passion for school.
Bless my teachers with wisdom and compassion.

Guide my choices
and keep me mindful of my actions.
Give me your Holy Spirit
that my faith might grow
and that I might love you more.
I dedicate this backpack
and this school year to you Lord,
may my time at school bring you Joy.
May my thoughts and actions
bring glory to your name.
In Jesus’ Holy Name
– Amen.

Continue the Blessing throughout…
