Education is a great way for children to develop and learn. They meet friends at school who can support them throughout their lives.
Kindergarten is one of the first opportunities for many kids to go to school. It is often the longest time they have been away from their caretakers. This step is huge in their development, but it can be intimidating! Praying for kindergarteners can help them feel God’s strength empowering them as they take this step. God will protect and help them.
The following prayers will help guide you as you pray for the kindergarteners in your life.
Let us pray.
