Closing Prayer for Class


Short Closing Prayer

(for the end of class)

Dear Lord,

Thank you that you promise us
That when two or more come together in Your name
You are with us.
Thank you Lord that you have been with us throughout this lesson
And that you are with us right now.
Inspire us as we leave this place
To love and serve You always.

In the name of Jesus.
Amen.

Closing Prayer

(for the end of the school day)

Dear Father and Lord of all,

Thank you for our school and everybody who works and studies in it.
We are so grateful for all the things we have learnt today.
Be with us now as we journey home.
Please keep us safe and watch over all our families and friends.

In the name of Jesus we pray.
Amen.

The Grace Prayer
A prayer for students and their teacher to say together:-

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,
and the love of God,
and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit
be with us all,
now and evermore.
Amen.

(The grace prayer is popular in the Methodist tradition and is often used at end of a meeting or service).


A Student's Prayer

A prayer of thanks for friends, family, teachers and the world around us. The prayer concludes with a request to God that the student would be able to give to others and not just take from them. About two minutes long and is suitable to use with teenagers at the end of religious studies class or lesson. Unfortunately the video ends a little abruptly so the teacher may need to be ready to add something short at the end such as "In the name of Jesus, Amen":-


The Lord Bless You

(A prayer sutable for a teacher to say over their students)

May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you.
May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
and give you peace.

(This ancient Judeo-Christian blessing is based on Numbers 6:24-26. See this link for more information on this prayer).
