Whether you are a veteran homeschooler, brand new to homeschooling this year, or opting for the online school option for your kids because of COVID this year…you might benefit from having some prayers for your homeschool room.

Praying over your homeschool room, whether it’s right at the beginning of the year, part-way through, or on a regular basis, can help to ground your homeschool (and your family) in God’s word.

We pray over our homeschool room as part of our bigger practice of praying over each room of our house. I love that it helps us to declare God’s promises in our lives and ask for his blessing. It’s also a great way to get the kids involved in prayer!

How to Pray Over Your Homeschool Room

Praying over your homeschool room is super simple. All you need to do is to take your kids, sit (or stand) in the place where homeschool happens for you, and ask God for his blessing.
