8 prayers for a graduation party pin Pin

Graduation. Party. People. All good things, generally, and now they’re all coming together at a graduation party from some type of school.

It may help to know that, however well you have planned, something may not come off just as you planned it. That’s okay. As you pray about the upcoming graduation party, allow yourself to turn over the details and the outcome to God. Your focus can be on your graduation and the family and friends gathering.

“Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long” ( Psalms 25.5, NIV).

If you’re giving a prayer at a graduation party, you might want to practice it a time or two beforehand so you’re comfortable and don’t sound stiff. That said, you’re praying to bless the party and the people, not give a speech, so let your prayer be personal and warm. Celebrate the graduation and give thanks for it all.  It’s a wonderful achievement to be grateful for.

Enjoy the moment and pray with the confidence that a Loving Father hears you and values you. Keep on praying!

Prayer For An Elementary School Graduation Party

God, I am a little anxious. My baby is about to depart from elementary school and head off to middle school. We’re having a graduation party to help him with this transition. We thought that a party might help with him understanding that he is leaving one school and going to another one.

I pray for the party to go well. I don’t really want any meltdowns, but I also know I can’t control the emotions of this many elementary-age children. May the kids have an enjoyable time and may the parents be able to commiserate with one another. I know I’m not alone in my worry for my child, who is growing up so quickly!

Help me to get through this Lord, and bless this party with Your grace. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Prayer For A Middle School Graduation Party

God, my parents are having a graduation party for me as I end my time in middle school and prepare to go to high school next year. I don’t really want to go but my parents are making a big deal about it and I don’t want to hurt their feelings.

While I am so glad to be done with middle school, I am already feeling anxious about high school and it doesn’t even start for another three months. Maybe this party will help me be able to talk to some of my friends and see how they’re feeling about it all. I just don’t want this party to be lame.

I don’t know if that’s something I can pray for, but I know You hear me when I pray, so that’s what I pray, in the name of Jesus, Amen.
