It’s back to school time! Our children are heading out to school and I’m sure as parents, step parents, grand parents and foster parents you have concerns.
Well, the only way to handle these concerns is to take it to God in prayer. Afterall in Psalm 138:8, He says that he will perfect everything that concerns you!
We are using a very popular bible verse for this prayer in 4 version. It is always great when you read the same scripture in different version because it causes you to think deeper about it and it is a great way to meditate on the scripture.
Proverbs 22:6 New International Version (NIV)
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
Proverbs 22:6 King James Version (KJV)
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6 Amplified (AMP)
Train up a child in the way he should go [and in keeping with his individual gift or bent], and when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6 The Message (MSG)
Point your kids in the right direction— when they’re old they won’t be lost.
Prayer for Students
Jehovah Rohi, the only true shepherd of your sheep we ask you to watch over our students as they head back to school. Protect them as the Good Shepherd that you are and keep them safe as they go through school from bullying or anything that would take their focus off of their studies. Lord we pray that the teachers would be guided by Your Spirit to do the things that you would have them do. Give those who are Christians the ability to show Your love to the students. And, even those teachers who don’t have a relationship with you, we ask that you would lead them just as you did King Cyrus to make the right decisions for our children. We pray that they will train up our children in the way that they should go so that when they are older they will not depart from Your Word. We pray that you would give our children who are saved the courage to stand for righteousness. We pray that they would be strengthen by your Spirit to not depart from the truth of Your Word, regardless of what is popular. We thank you that You will give them grace to learn all and retain so that they will pass the exams at the end of the school year, in Jesus Name, Amen
