Our students head to school soon – if not already. There, they stand on a battleground. What will they believe?

A simple man believes everything,

    but the prudent man carefully considers his ways.

Prov. 14:15 WEB

Another young man stood on the battleground as well: Daniel.

Our young man prayed – putting many of us to shame if truth be told.

And what happened during those days of fervent, heartfelt prayer?


Daniel prayed for 21 days, and nothing happened.

But then came a breakthrough.

Then he said to me, Don’t be afraid, Daniel; for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard: and I have come for your words’ sake. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; but, behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me: and I remained there with the kings of Persia. Now I have come to make you understand what shall happen to your people in the latter days; for the vision is yet for many days:

Daniel 10:12-14 WEB

I itch to see breakthroughs in my own children’s lives. You might have a special student with whom you’d cherish a breakthrough as well.

Why not support students (our child, niece/nephew, neighbor, or others) with prayer? We may not see evidence of answers right away, but remember Daniel’s “21.”

A battle is being waged.

Today we’re praying for the head – their mind and thoughts. After all, isn’t that a breeding ground for actions?

A Prayer for My Student’s Mind & Thoughts

Christian prayer for parents to pray over their children.


Thank You for the magnificient minds You create. They are good! May my son/daughter give thought to his/her ways, walking with prudent actions. May their mind be filled with Your righteousness this school year. 

In Jesus’ name, amen.

  1. What an important prayer for the minds of our kids! Your encouragement about the 21 days cheers me to no end. Sometimes I pray, but don’t see anything, so it’s good to remember that!
