Prayer Points for a New School Year2
PAs a new school year is upon us, there are several items that were heavy on my heart for us to take to the throne. I often times feel regret in not leading our congregation enough to be on our knees before our Heavenly Father. There is no better posture for us to take on.
Here are a few things to guide you in prayer as we approach a new school year:
- My heart for our children would be to be described as Jesus was when he was growing up: growing in wisdom and stature and favor among men. Pray for excellency of effort in the classroom for our students, no matter their age or grade, that it may bring glory to Him who created them.
- Pray for all of those who are leading in our schools. Teachers sacrifice so much and pour their heart out into molding young lives. Pray for strength, wisdom, patience, and an opporunity to glorify the Lord in their conduct as well. Pray for the administration to give great oversight and guidance in their mission.
- Pray for our church's ability to minister. I'd love for us to pray for new opportunities to meet needs in the schools. Pray for our continued presence in the school to be a blessing.
- Pray for parents to be the primary source of discipleship in the lives of their children. Pray for those who are struggling with transitions in life and with their children.
If you think of more things to pray for, we'd love to hear them! Post them as comments here or on the CFC app or Facebook page. Let's cover this week in prayer!!!
