Let us remember to pray for kids as many are scared to return to school. They feel nervous and sleepless nights begin. The unknown of a new teacher, new class room and meeting new people can be hard. Going to bed earlier and waking up earlier after a summer break is life changing. Let us pray now for kids and teacher as they face a new school year. Also, let us pray for prayers and workers in schools. Crossing guards that help kids be safe across roads.
we come to you know and ask largely for our schools. Inside of them are teacher, leaders, workers and students who face many different things of life. Asking that your peace be with them as they begin a new school year. Only you God, know which rooms kids should be in, the major connects and the peace beyond a human understanding can rest in lives. We agree now for kids to rest in their new school year, give them great teachers and leaders. Give the teachers and leaders wisdom and many volunteers to help them. Let all fear go away from little minds and adults of school days. Let us remember to pray for them daily as new challenges face us all. AMEN
Proverbs 22:6 NIV
Start children off on the way they should go,
and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
Deuteronomy 11:18-19 NIV
Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 19 Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
It isn't only about school, but about home life as well. Daily we learn and we can teach others how to be kind and live in today. I love how the Bible says to teach your children. As I grow older, I realize that our children are always our children no matter what their age. Even as adults, I still see the little girl in my daughter and the little boy in my son. Yet, they are adults and I find myself still guiding gently in certain areas of life. We never stop learning or growing in life.
Maybe you don't have kids, but you have nieces, nephews, cousins, neighbors or kids around you. The connect is still important and your light must shine. Little kids have a lot going onside their minds and needs our support in so many ways. I have noticed that even a smile helps a child. It is not only kids who get nervous before school, but adults as well. We pray for God to plant our children in right class rooms, right teachers and even classmates. They spend a lot of time there and we pray for safety, health and new beginnings to be great ones this school year.
Changes you which changes things!
Philippians 4:6-7 NIV
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends! No matter what you face today, know this: God does not give us a spirit of fear, but power, love and a sound mind. That is found in the Bible in 2 Timothy 1:7.
Yes, it's normal to fear scared, but that's one reason why we have each other. To encourage and say you can do this! Praying protection over minds today and staying in confidence as God guides our day.
