Prayers for Middle School (ages 12-14)

Lord Jesus Christ, you have said that you are the Way, the Truth and the Life. Do not allow us to stray from you, who are the Way, not to distrust you, who are the Truth, nor to rest in anything other than you, who are the Life.
Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Prayer of St Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury,pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen

Dear God, teach me to be happy with the things that I have.

Dear God, Please help me honor and respect my parents. "Honor your father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise." ~ Ephesians 6:2

Dear God, Please help me to love and respect my friends. "A man that has friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother." ~ Proverbs 18:24

Dear God, Please help me to think like Jesus. "For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ." ~ 1 Corinthians 2:16

Dear God, Please give me the strength and courage to do what is right. "Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him." ~ John 14:23

Dear God, Please teach me to learn and to grow in all of Your ways. "Show me your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths." ~ Psalm 25:4

Dear God, Please shape me according to Your will. "But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand." ~ Isaiah 64:8

Dear God, please help me to make good decisions. "Teach me your way, O LORD; I will walk in your truth: unite my heart to fear your name." ~ Psalm 86:11

Dear God, please teach me to forgive others, like you forgive me. "And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake has forgiven you." ~ Ephesians 4:32

God our Father, you call each of us by name, and you treasure each of us individually as though no-one else exists. Inspire us to respect and value each person who comes into our lives this day. Amen.

Dear God, please teach me to be careful with my words.

Dear God, please help me to not be tempted to do things I shouldn't. "And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen." ~ Matthew 6:13

Dear God, please give my parents wisdom to raise me in the way I should grow. "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that gives to all men liberally." ~ James 1:5

Dear God, I pray that I won't be jealous of the things others have. "A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones." ~ Proverbs 14:30

Dear God, I pray for ways to encourage people to love You and love each other. "And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works." ~ Hebrews 10:24
