Daily Prayer for May 23

Children at School
Certain people in the United States have worked hard to remove God from school systems, and we wonder why our schools are no longer safe. There was a time when we sent our children off to school knowing that they would be watched over carefully by school personnel. At the beginning of each day they heard a prayer and scripture reading, and they pledged allegiance to our country’s flag. The times have changed, and our children at school need our prayers of protection more than ever before. (Pray Psalm 91 for your children’s protection.) Let us unite in prayer for our school systems asking God for godly teachers, school counselors, coaches, and principles. Enjoy your children and nurture them, build them up according to the purpose and plan of God. It is your responsibility to pray for your children, ask God for wisdom and train your child/children in the way he is to go.

Holy Spirit, help me pray effectively for our children at school. Father, I ask you to protect our children who attend school pursuing their education and training. In the name of Jesus, I bind their steps to paths of righteousness knowing that You are effectually at work in them, creating in them the power and desire to please You. They are the head and not the tail, above and not beneath. I pray that they will find favor, good understanding and high esteem in the sight of God, their teachers and classmates. Amen.
