As your kids head to their school, we prepare them with proper school supplies, a nice backpack, and a lunchbox to hold a nutritious meal. But are we preparing our kids spiritually for the kinds of things they may face at school? Throughout the year, consider praying for the following. – By Arabah Joy
10 Important Back To School Prayers
1. That they would be a light in the darkness at school
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Matthew 5:14 (ESV)
Parents are almost at the starting gate for Back to School. As the upcoming school year A local newspaper reports “students they approached moan and groan about their summer break about to end.”
SOON Teachers will hit the ground running as the first school bell rings to begin the new school year. Veteran teacher say preparing for the school year is no easy task. Teachers all over are back to campus and have started setting up classrooms, organizing lesson plans and attending meetings.
Every one I spoke with said, they were saying lots of “Prayers.”
Lord, a new school year has begun for some and soon will begin for many more. Would you give peace and patience to parents, teachers and those young people who begin their new routine and school year. Excitement, a range of emotions and worry means we need your patience in spades. Father God give families a new focus and help them to fix their minds on You. Help children, parents and teachers work in harmony as they grow and learn through the school year. May your patience be apparent in each person’s life. Help our schools be a safe! Help adults and children be
productive in the new learning environment for 2017. As parents, teachers and children enter the educational environment may the classroom be the perfect place for growth and preparation for the future. Keep everyone under an umbrellas of protection. We look forward to the school year ahead and thank You for Your presence every step of the way.
In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen!

It’s when you are being Jesus to another.

When this song says “Will we help them understand?” think about that and think about how you may be “the only Jesus that someone may see today.”

We should live our lives in such a way that it is a testimony that draws others to Christ.
So that we can change the lives of those who live only for titles.
3. Hey, while this song is playing think about the person that’s near you.
They may be needing hope, so say a quick prayer for them.
And, you never know, they may be listening too,
and they may be doing the same for you.
