I have collected what I consider to be the 15 best Bible verses to encourage high school seniors in this post! As our seniors approach the end of their time in high school, they have so many balls in the air. We are there to support, encourage, commiserate, and witness this joyful time in their lives. 

As well as all the good things happening, there are some seriously sad times too. The final day of class, the final game, the final club meeting… The list goes on. This is definitely a bittersweet time.

Prayer and verses to use

Prayer can help so much with all the “feels”. I know that I feel better with a few verses in my back pocket to refer to for my own encouragement from above.

Here are my favorite verses that are both uplifting and encouraging. These will help so much in these final days with your senior. They have so much ahead of them, but they will never leave our thoughts or our hearts.

Use these verses to encourage your teen as they move through their days to remind them that through the ups and downs of this senior year, God is there to support and cheer along with us!

Print off the list of verses or the cards that you can can download, or write them inside a card that you write to your favorite senior! These cards from Dayspring are wonderful

Great idea for these verses:)

Another idea is to take screenshots of the verses and upload them along with favorite pictures to a digital picture frame. That way their family and friends pop up in the frame as well as these verses to uplift and encourage! *This post may contain affiliate links.

    • This is such a fun time. A bit frustrating, but they do eventually figure things out. But, warning, it can take years…
      The best we can do is to be supportive, and pray a lot!

  2. This is awesome! For seven years, I taught 14-18-year-olds in a daily early morning scripture study class. They were the best 7 years of my life! Starting the day with those precious young people AND the word of God? Perfect!
