A Prayer for Help for Struggles with Schoolwork
I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and
says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. (Isaiah 41:13)
Praise God: That He is our helper.
Confess: Any pride or doubt that keeps me from admitting my need for help or accepting help when it is offered.
Offer Thanks: For the times God my helper has come to my aid.
Ask God: O Lord my Helper, I pray that my child will know that you are the Lord his God, who takes hold of his right hand and says to him, “Do not fear; I will help you.” May the promise of your words reassure him as he struggles with his studies at school. Please give his teachers patience, compassion, and wisdom to know how to help him learn. I pray that he will not be too proud or embarrassed to ask his teacher for help, and may he be eager to ask for your help as well. When he calls on you, give him an understanding of his lessons, enlighten his mind, and protect him from discouragement. Grant him peace and contentment when he knows that he has tried his best. In Jesus’ name, amen.
