Holy Spirit, let the wisdom of God come alive among us. Awaken the awareness and compassion of our community leaders and legislators to the disparities within our current education system. Convict the hearts of those who are not performing their duties in integrity and fairness. Help them to become more diligent and focused on their obligation to protect the rights of all children to have access to the best academic experience possible.

A Prayer for Schools
O God, our Teacher, You invite people to announce the good news to the poor, so we thank You for the gift of our schools, where service to our brothers and sisters is modeled. Increase our zeal for ensuring that all children and families can benefit from a quality education, and that our schools grow in their ability to nurture the soul of our nation.
Alliance for Catholic Education
Lord of Heaven, we ask that justice run down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream within our local school districts. We commit that equality will rule in every district and that the same quality of education we would expect our children to receive is the same quality that our teachers and administrators will sow into the lives of all children.
We commit that our educators, board members and administrators will do what is right, just, and fair and they will find the right way to go. Wisdom will enter their hearts and knowledge will fill them with joy. God, You do not show favoritism, so we declare that our educators, board members and administrators will not show favoritism when it comes to allocating resources and funds.
