50 Days of Prayer – Oregon Coast
Schools, Children, Youth
Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.
Daniel 1:17 …. God gave them knowledge and skill in all literature and wisdom; and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.
Your Word says we perish without a vision… We ask for an opportunity to restore Christian values and moral standards into the hearts of our children. We ask that You would restore that which was lost throughout our nation–One Nation under God– including in the classrooms. Let all things be done decently and in order. Help us teach our children to respect and honor authority. We speak life, hope, and peace into our schools and children. Protect our children from the onslaught of the enemy, and pull their interest away from the enemy’s camp, and set their hearts on You. Give Your angels charge over our schools and protect them from violence. Uncover, the schemes of the enemy to cause harm, (Drugs, alcohol, promiscuity and deception). Let the passion and power of Your Holy Spirit flow through our schools, bringing peace, righteousness and a climate that is good for learning. Help our children achieve the skills that would allow them to succeed and excel when they complete the work assigned. Build perseverance into our children. Let our children be authors and finishers…. In school and in the faith. We pray You would plant the vision You have for each child and help them to fulfill it. Implant in the children’s hearts the knowledge that each one is fearfully and wonderfully made by You, for such a time as this, and that You have wonderful plans for their future if they will persevere. In Jesus Name, Amen!
Now, I pray for our teachers and children. Fill them to overflowing with the ability to connect with each other with delight and to rejoice in achievements. Set their hearts for success! Give our children the ability to sit quietly, to listen carefully, and to apply what they hear. Let the concepts slip into a solid foundation on which they can build. We pray for our children to have early success with reading, writing and arithmetic. And as they achieve, fill their hearts with a hope and a vision. In Jesus Name, Amen!
For all the youth who struggle with bullying, drugs, alcohol, or a poor home life, we ask that You grant them wisdom and strength to come forward to ask for help. Protect them from making decisions that will alter the course of their lives. We pray for the teachers to be able to find and minister to these kids and help them to be authors and finishers in the faith, and in completing school. Give divine wisdom to the teachers and support people to know how to intervene in a timely way.
We Pray for the Christian and Public-School administration, teachers, and support staff that serve our students and community______________
