I greet you this morning in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Well, its that time again. The school buses are rolling, morning routines have changed, we are rushing trying to get breakfast done, getting children to bus stops, walking or driving children to school.
As this new school year begins, let us remember to pray with and for our children. Although it has been stated that prayer is not allowed in the schools, we can still teach our children to pray. Encourage them to utter the Word of God no matter where they are.
May we also remember to pray for our Teachers, Principals, Guidance Counselors, Social Workers, School Safety Personnel, Para's, Office staff everyone who are in the school system. We are encouraged to pray for the safety of both students and staff.
May we also remember to lift up the parents, grandparents and or guardians of our children. Pray that they will join with the school staff with an understanding that they share the same goal, the safety, wellbeing and education of their children.
I believe that all of us encounter a child each and every day, so PLEASE pray for our children, that they will walk in their purpose this school year. As we encounter them, declare and decree the Word of God over a child each and every day.
Let us do our part, and I am sure God will do the rest. Encourage a child and school staff every day and we will certainly see the difference in their lives.
