Prayer to be used with Remote/Online Learning
Dear Jesus, When you walked this earth, you showed that you love little children. We know that you love us as your own children. It is hard for us to hear that some people do not treat children the way you did and hurt children by their words and actions. Help us to learn how to protect ourselves, and others, from harm. Help us to forgive those who have harmed children in the past. Bless all those who teach us and work to keep us safe. Amen.
Jesus our brother, When you walked this earth, you showed that you love all children and we know that you love us as your own.

Help us to learn how to protect ourselves, and others, from harm. Help us to forgive those who have harmed children and youth in the past. Bless all those who teach us and work to keep us safe. Amen.

Teens today live a huge portion of their lives online. In fact, according to a study from Pew Research Center, 92 percent of teens report going online daily—including 24 percent who say they go online “almost constantly.” Why so much online activity? The accessibility of smartphones, of course. Fully 91 percent of teens go online from mobile devices at least occasionally. Among these “mobile teens,” 94 percent go online daily or more often. That’s a lot of time spent looking at a screen. Just like you want your teen to stay safe in school and at the mall, you need to be sure they’re being smart about how they handle themselves online.
