    Our Father in heaven...

Remember God is your child’s father too, so worry less.

    Great is your name in all the earth...

This is a statement that recognizes God’s powerful presence in everyplace. God is at school, too. Teach your children this so they will feel safer, and so they will remember him throughout their day.

    Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven...

Pray that God’s kingdom rule comes more fully into your child’s world, and to yours. Pray for the people your child knows who are outside the kingdom.

God is at school, too.
    Give us today our daily bread...

Asking God for daily food reminds us of our dependence on him for everything — we obtain nothing by ourselves. God is providing daily for you and for your child. Teach your little one this so that they learn to trust him.

    Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us...

Just like the chalkboard at school can be wiped clean, so God is willing to wipe our sins away. No doubt someone will hurt your child’s feelings, some one will sin against him or her. What will you teach your child about dealing with this offense?

    Lead us not to temptation, but deliver us from evil...

This is poetic way of submitting our will to God; we want to go his way, but we know we have an enemy who wants keep us from that way. God is our hero and can deliver us. Children are well acquainted with the language of heroes and enemies (think Star Wars), so speak to them in these terms about God.

    For yours is the kingdom,the power, and glory, forever...

What news could be better for moms sending their children out away from the nest of home? God is reigning over every place — even school!
