Praying for our Schools


Church Family,

Prayer works! This morning in my Bible reading I read about 2 older believers, Simeon and Anna, who were awaiting the coming of Christ. While waiting they worshipped and prayed to the Lord. They were Spiritually prepared.

Luke 2:25-26 Now there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon, and this man was righteous and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.

Luke 2:37-38 and then as a widow until she was eighty-four. She did not depart from the temple, worshiping with fasting and prayer night and day. 38And coming up at that very hour she began to give thanks to God and to speak of him to all who were waiting for the redemption of Jerusalem.

Today our school year began. Thousands of children, faculty, and staff began a difficult journey of growing in knowledge. Will join me in praying for our schools? Praying in anticipation of the change that these children, faculty, and staff can make on our future in Christ. Praying for opportunities to serve in the local schools as a volunteer, good news club worker, mentor, and encourager. Praying for the second coming of Christ.
