Back to School Prayer Service

Tonight was our church's annual Back to School Prayer Service.  Does your church do one?  If not, you should suggest it!  What a great way to begin the school year!

Our church comes together in praise and prayer and music and worship for all the children going back to school (public, homeschooled, college) and all the educators (preschool through college and including homeschooling parents) and all the adminstrators, workers, staff, etc. of any educational institution.

Prior to service or early in the service, everyone writes on a postcard the name of a child they wish to be prayed for.  At a designated time during the service, everyone comes forward and places those cards in a basket and they are prayed over.  Several times between songs, we pray.

What an uplifting time!  As a I said before....what a great way to start the new year!

  1. We are looking at doing a back-to-school service as well. Could you email me what exactly y'all do? What kind of songs you sing? Do you get the kids involved with the service?

    Any help would be great!
