12 Bible Verses to pray over your homeschool
It’s that time of year!

Fresh reams of paper, spiral-bound notebooks, and packages of pencils with full, perfect erasers have replaced the bottles of sunscreen, pool toys, and beach towels on store shelves.

Our beloved summer is drawing to a close.

Our bookshelves have been purged of last year’s materials, making way for supplies prepared for the new year. Most of our curriculum planning is complete. We’ve assessed weak areas in our kids’ academics and have come up with strategies to tackle them. We might even have our school calendars in place.

It’s certainly a busy time of year, isn’t it?

But let’s not let the busy-ness keep us from taking time with God in prayer on behalf of our homeschools.

Let’s not be like Martha, “worried and troubled about many things,” and forgetting the one needful thing (Luke 10:38-42).

The thing that takes our perspective off the busy-ness and onto the One who called us to this task in the first place.

The one needful thing for our schools.

The one needful thing for our kids.

The one needful thing for us.

Time with Jesus. 

Will you take some time with Him today? Perhaps the verses that follow will serve as a helpful catalyst for your prayers.

1.)Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established. (Proverbs 16:3)

2.)Trust in the Lord with all your heartand do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

3.)Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.  (I Corinthians 15:58)

4.)Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men. (Colossians 3:23)

5.)For wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. (Proverbs 2:10)

6.)But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. (James 3:18)

7.)By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches. (Proverbs 24:3-4)

8.)Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2)

9.)For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. (2 Peter 1:5-7)

10.)May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 15:5-6)

11.)He who calls you is faithful; He will surely do it. (I Thessalonians 5:24)

12.)All your children shall be taught by the Lordand great shall be the peace of your children. (Isaiah 54:13)

Are there other Scripture passages that come to mind as you pray for your homeschool? I would welcome your biblical encouragement if you have a moment to share below.

May our hearts be united with our God’s as we lift them up in prayer, conforming our desires for our homeschools with His. cross-123948_640b

  1. This will be our second year of homeschooling, and I’m really glad I found your list of verses here. What a great post! I try and get up earlier than my children each morning to give myself time for a quiet start to the day, and quiet time with Jesus. I will be praying through these verses over the next number of days. Thank you for putting together such a wonderful post.


    1. Hello, Jen! I’m so glad you found this post to be helpful! What a blessing you are to your family, as you take time for them in prayer. Prayer is an investment with short-term, long-term, and eternal rewards – I can’t think of a better use of those valuable early morning moments! Blessings to you and your family!

      1. What an amazing resourse. Thank you so much for sharing.

  2. I know this is an older post but I am seeing it for the first time and just wanted to share that when I was looking for confirmation on whether to home school or not (3 years ago) God put this scripture in front of me. It’s Luke 6:48 where Jesus is speaking about wise and foolish builders. “They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it because it was well built.” 🙂 Just in case it can help someone….

  3. Thank you for these verses. I printed them out to hang above my desk. Such an encouragement as I am preparing for the coming school year!

  4. Just came across this list through pinterest and I just wanted to say Thanks! such an encouragement!
