3 Ways to Pray for Your Kids as They Start a New School Year
The School year has started! So much of what our children face through out the school year is out of our control. When we can't "fix it" or "make it happen" for our kids we often feel helpless. Instead - we should go to the One that controls it all!
Here are 3 ways to pray for your kids as they start a new school year:
Pray for spiritual, emotional, and physical safety for our kids. Ask God to guard their hearts and minds and also protect our school buildings and grounds.
"I look up to the mountains. Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord. He is the Maker of heaven and earth.
The Lord will keep you from every kind of harm. He will watch over your life."
- Love of Learning
Pray for God to develop a love of learning in your child. He created the whole world and learning about God's creation is a wonderful thing!"A heart that understands what is right looks for knowledge. But the mouths of foolish people feed on what is foolish."(Proverbs 15:14).
Pray for God to surround them with friends who make wise choices and encourage their faith.
"Walk with wise people and become wise. A companion of foolish people suffers harm." (Proverbs 13:20).
