Self-Guided Prayer Walk Prompts
Thank you for joining us in prayer! Please use these prompts to help guide you as you pray for our students, teachers, and staff. The prayer walk is designed to begin in front of Yellowstone Schools’ primary parking lot, at the large “Yellowstone Academy” sign.
Please remain outside of the black fence at all times for the health and safety of all. You are welcome to walk around the perimeter of our campus, or you may stay in your vehicle and drive to each stop. You may also use this guide at home or in a small group setting to help guide your prayers for our students. Thank you for partnering with us!

Let us pray for all the students who will be blessed by Yellowstone Schools.
Almighty God, bless all the students whose lives are closely linked with ours, and grant that we may serve Christ in them, and love them as Christ loves us. Keep them safe from all harm. May nothing stand against them as they learn to seek your kingdom. Build them up in your way, so that when they grow old they will not depart from it. May their lives shine like stars in the sky as they hold tightly to you, the author and perfecter of our faith.

O Lord, you who have called and equipped the teachers in our community, we pray for them today. Watch over them, provide for them, guide them, sustain them. May you be their sun and shield, so that they might do the work that you have entrusted to them and sense your care in these uncertain times.

Let us pray for the alumni of Yellowstone Schools.
Lord God, bless the alumni of Yellowstone Schools. May they remember that they, too, were once students, and you made a path for them where there was none. Guide them as they continue to live lives built on the foundation of Christ Jesus. May their lives glorify your name.

Father, please bless Yellowstone’s plans to provide expanded facilities for students in this community that will promote growth, development, and learning. Please provide all of the wisdom, finances, and resources to build this expansion. We ask you to provide abundant funding, competent professionals, and skilled laborers for the construction. May these facilities stand as a beacon of light and hope for the students we seek to serve. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
May the love of God be the passion in your heart.
May the joy of God be your strength when times are hard.
May the presence of God be a peace that overflows.
May the Word of God be the seed that you might sow.
