Prayer to Increase My Learning
God of Refuge, please increase my knowledge as I work towards bettering myself. Bless me with wisdom, intelligence, and the ability to learn quickly.

Motivate me to help myself and develop helpful habits that will contribute to my learning ability. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Prayer for Remote Learning for Young Child
Compassionate Father, please be with my child as we work through this process of learning from home. Help me to be the teacher he/she needs. Use Your mighty power to help me create lessons, be innovative, and find the tools I need. I pray my child will find our home-learning fun and interesting. Please don’t let him/her fall behind or become self-conscious about the quality of teaching in our home. Pour out patience, understanding, and love upon our entire family as we take each skill day by day. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Prayer for Remote Learning for Older Child
Jesus, my King, please bless my child with the motivation to start their day in a timely manner and encourage him/her to work hard to keep up with their studies. With concepts that are harder to learn, give all of us patience and direction to come to the correct solutions.
I ask that You instill a desire to excel in his/her mind and permit him/her to be successful. I pray our educational goals are accomplished while learning from home, and if there are areas where any skill is lacking, may he/she quickly be able to fill the gaps. In Your precious name, I pray. Amen.

Prayer to Increase My Learning About the Bible
Lord of Joy, my heart is on fire for Your word, and I want to read and study Your teachings more. Motivate me to read my Bible daily, delve deep into Your ways, and learn all I can about how to live a Christian life. Be with my heart as I read and help my mind focus on each letter. I want to envelop every word, for it is food for my soul. Show me ways to study and memorize scripture and give me opportunities to share my knowledge with others. In Jesus’ all-knowing name, I pray. Amen.

Prayer for Child to Overcome a Learning Disability
Father, my Miracle-Worker, I ask that You bless my child with the ability to defeat the learning disability that holds his/her mind back from learning as it should. Be with him/her as she works at school, and please support his/her needs. I pray other students don’t judge my child based on learning ability, and if the enemy deems it necessary to cause harm, I do plead with You to keep all harsh or rude comments at bay. Stay close to my child daily, and if it is in Your will, please allow him/her to completely overcome these learning issues, not just learn to cope with them. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Prayer to Develop My Learning During School
God of Immeasurable Mercies, I ask that as I attend each class in school, You help me to absorb every ounce of information possible. My education is important to me, and I know it plays a huge role in my future. Please bless me with grace and mercy as I enter my classroom doors and motivate me to do my best. Encourage me to plan for tests, stay on top of my work, and to develop worthy study habits. I need You to guide and direct me through school, so I can be the person You are counting on me to become. I don’t want to let You down, Jesus. In Your holy name, I pray. Amen.


Prayer to Improve My Concentration While Studying
Creator and Sustainer, please give me a more focused path of thinking during my study time. My thoughts often drift to something different that may need my attention, but my goal is to remain steadfast and centered on my assignments. Remind me that to be able to get the most out of my studies, I need to stay on track, be organized, and have a true desire to do my best. Please shower me with Your inspirational love and help me develop better concentration skills. I ask these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Prayer for Passing Test Results
Merciful and Forgiving Lord, thank You for allowing me to develop and grow as my education continues to broaden my mind and provide me with knowledge. I ask, for this test that is consuming my mind, that You please allow me to pass it. It means so much to me, and I need news of goodness and success in my life. I pray my thoughts stay centered on the subject material and all the knowledge from studying sticks in my mind. Please ease my anxiety and give me peace so my worries will fade, and I can focus. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Prayer for Success in My Education
Light in the Darkness, be with me as I progress through school. I ask that You permit me to enjoy learning and keep me determined. Allow me to be successful in my education because I know my future depends on it. Let me learn all I can so my knowledge is overflowing, and help me to use that knowledge to create a thriving and fulfilling career. Be with my teachers, family, and friends throughout my journey and show them they are all motivators in my life. Thank You for my education, and may I be an inspiration to others. In Jesus’ loving name, I pray. Amen.

Prayer to Increase My Knowledge
Precious Holy Spirit, I want to learn more, experience more, and share more. Knowledge is a gift from You, and I want to know all that I can. Help me gain information from all classes, teachers, and mentors. Be with my teachers as they work daily to ensure I get the most out of their lessons and support me as I try to capture all of their words. More knowledge will help me be a better student, worker, citizen, and parent. I pray for You to remind me of this every moment. Thank You for providing us with knowledge of so many wonderful things, but most of all, thank You for the knowledge of Heaven, the Bible, Jesus, and Your promises. In Your holy name, I pray. Amen.
