PROJECT PASS-United Back 2 School Prayers-Protection and Days 6-9

Cry Out in United Back 2 School Prayers by Linda Fegins

Pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord. Lift up your hands to him for the lives of your children” (Lam. 2:19)

We need to consistently pray united back to school prayers for the protection of our children, parents, teachers, the school board and the entire school system. PROJECT PASS-Praying Always for Students and Schools want to partner with you so we can unite in praying for our children, teen and young adults. Through prayer, families, our children’s lives, and our world can be changed. God will show us how to use the power that believers have within through the power of the Holy Spirit to transform our schools and deliver them from violence, disorganization, and poor administration. Through united consistent prayer, God will give us the power, wisdom, knowledge, and creativity to solve the many school problems that plague our city schools and school board. Through prayer the right leaders will arise to enable the community to come together to take productive and strategic action to transform our educational system and our schools.

Here is a short prayer for protection. If you read Day 1-5 prayers we prayed for the protection of children. Review that prayer too.

Prayer of Protection

Lord in the name of Jesus be a very present help to my son/ daughter__________________ (state their name) as he/she goes out to play, goes to school, walks on the school ground and sits in the classroom , attends college and faces the challenges and responsibilities in our society.

Lord build a hedge of protection all around the school building, playground, bathrooms, classroom and hide them under the protection of your wings as in Psalm 91 in the name of Jesus.

Lord in the name of Jesus we pray that you cover my children and the children and youth around the world through the blood and “stay the hand of violence against the children and staff of the school. Dismantle any plan to bring harm to them. Expose any weapon brought on the school premises and render it harmless”fn.1.

Back to School Prayer Protection

back to school prayers 1230046_540085746062478_2122145817_n

Our children our returning back to school all over the country. Our youth our headed back to college campuses and some are leaving home for the first time. Let’s pray for back to school prayer protection. Last week I mentioned that we need to cry out in united prayer for our children and schools saying “Lord bless our children and the schools they attend”, See Lam 2:19 . http://www.ladyofprayer.com/unite-cry-schools-linda-fegins  Through prayer, families, our children’s lives, and our world can be changed.

Along with daily prayer rallies and prayer meetings around the country, Moms in Prayer , International will hold its seventh annual Bless Our Schools Sunday, September 18,2016.https://momsinprayer.org/events/bless-our-schools-sunday Every year on the third Sunday in September, churches around the world pray for the schools, teachers, staff, and students in their congregation.

There is no doubt that “Moms In Prayer  International” (MIPI) founded by Fern Nichols, a group of mothers around the country   have been going before the throne of  God.  A diversified group of mothers of MIPI serve as prayer warriors who battle in the spiritual realm for the lives of children and teenagers as they go off to school for at least one hour every week. They are women united with one purpose: a passion to pray for their children. http://momsinprayer.org/ The mission of Moms in Prayer International is to impact children and schools worldwide for Christ by gathering mothers to pray.

Through prayer, our lives, our children’s lives, and our world can be changed.

Believe that intercessors can change your school district with the weapon of prayer. Believe that positive results will occur such as peace and safety, better test scores, higher graduation rates,   and more school funds to meet the needs of our children. Pray that student-led prayer groups will spring forth.  Let’s challenge ourselves to daily pray for the safety of our children and that God will deliver them from evil and thwart every scheme of the enemy.

I know that many intercessors already have prayer assignments from the Lord. But I would challenge  the intercessors, parents and teachers to ask Him if He might also want you to “adopt” a public school for your prayer agenda.

praying-over-our-schools-1

Action Plan :

Pray for the school your child attends as you drive your child to school . Pray for a school in your neighborhood and/or adopt a school to daily pray for throughout the school year. Encourage your children to pray for their school and teachers.

How many of you will join with me to begin praying for your child or grandchild’s school or college today. Join with me now!

How should we pray?  Below is one prayer for school safety and protection. Next week we will pray for their academic study. See a few prayer points from last week’s  post.

 

Here’s a prayer for the safety of your children.

A Prayer for Your Child’s Protection and Safety.

Heavenly Father, you are the sure defense of our children, you are the rock of refuge, their high tower, and their protector. How I praise you and thank you for the certain knowledge I have that you care for my child, you will be with him/her always and you will keep him/her from the evil one.

Lord, you saved Israel from the hands of the enemies time and time again. You delivered your people and helped them to dwell in safety. Be a very present help to my son/ daughter__________________(state their name )as he/she goes out to play, goes to school, attends college and faces the challenges and responsibilities in our society. Lord build a hedge of protection all around the school building, playground, bathrooms, classroom and hide them under the protection of your wings as in Psalm 91in the name of Jesus.

Keep our home safe from all fear and dispatch your angles to protect my children at school,on campus, on the playground, on the bus and walking home from school. Uphold my child, ______according to your Word, Lord, so that he/she might truly live, experiencing the abundant life you have promised to all who come to you. Let him/ her never be ashamed of you. Hold him/her up so that he/she will always be safe and will have respect to your statues continually. I pray that he will honor You and your Word. I thank you, Father for the promises of your Word, and that you are a shield unto them that put their trust in you. Deliver them from all who would harm them.

Praying As a United Community for Our Children, Teachers, Parents and Schools

Praying As a United Community for Our Children, Teachers, Parents and Schools by Linda D. Fegins

 Pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord. Lift up your hands to him for the lives of your children” (Lam. 2:19).

It’s back to school time. There have been back to school rallies. Many ministries have been calling for prayer for the children, teachers, administrators and school staff as they return back to school. The day of September 1, 2010  Messiah Baptist Church Intercessory Prayer Team under the guidance of Kimberly Bracey ( Team Leader Linda Fegins)  as well as  various ministries such as the Global Prayer Intercessors founded by Minetta Hare, and the Lydia Circle Prayer Team ( Director Linda Fegins)  held prayer meetings by conference call, three way telephone  calls and at church  praying for protection, guidance and wisdom for  our school children , youth and college students , parents and staff.  There is no doubt that “Moms In Touch International” (MITI) founded by Fern Nichols, a group of mothers around the country who simply desire to affect communities and schools through the power of prayer  have been going before the throne of  God. A diversified group of mothers of MITI serve as prayer warriors who battle in the spiritual realm for the lives of children and teenagers as they go off to school for at least one hour every week. They are women united with one purpose: a passion to pray for their children.

Through prayer, our lives, our children’s lives, and our world can be changed.  Public schools, such as the Detroit Public School system, and other inner-city schools around the nation with all the violence, disorganization, poor administration, and politics on the school boards   can be transformed by prayer. Then change will occur by our obedience if God calls us to action. He will show us how to use the power that believers have within through the Holy Spirit to transform our schools. Through united consistent prayer, God will   give us the power, wisdom, knowledge, and creativity to solve the many school problems that plague our city schools and school board. Through prayer the right leaders will arise and the community should be able to come together to take productive and strategic action.

Believe that intercessors can change your school district with the weapon of prayer. Believe that positive results will occur such as peace and safety, better test scores, higher graduation rates,   and more school funds to meet the needs of our children. Pray that student-led prayer groups will spring forth. Yes, the crisis in our schools is discouraging and is wide spread. But remember that where sin increases, grace increases all the more (see Ro. 5:20).

 I know that many intercessors already have prayer assignments from the Lord. But I would challenge  the intercessors, parents and teachers to ask Him if He might also want you to “adopt” a public school for your prayer agenda.

Prayer Points for Our Children, Teachers, Parents and Administrators

 Finally for what should we pray? We want to pray specifically and effectively on one accord. I have a few suggestions; some are what the Lord has given me and others I have gathered from other prayer warriors and other articles on prayer.

Children and Youth

Pray:

  • Daily for the safety of our children and that God will deliver them from evil and thwart every scheme of the enemy.
  • Pray that our children will be open to learning new knowledge and that God would give them the wisdom to know how to understand and use that knowledge. We need to pray that our children have the ability to discriminate between good knowledge and bad knowledge. Teach a child to choose the right path, and when he is older he will remain upon it. (Proverbs 22:6)
  •  Pray that our children will be serious minded and work hard to acquire both secular and spiritual knowledge. Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)
  • Pray for the hearts of the students to be receptive to the gospel of peace and that God will call many to Himself. (Acts 2:38-40)
  • Pray for our sons and daughters to make wise choices and to develop solid friendships with those who are following God. (Psalms 144;12-15)
  • Pray for relief of those children who are homeless and need shelter, food and health care. Pray that Christ will restore their home for the future. (Psalms 107:41)
  • Ask God to cause your children to be examples for believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. (I Timothy 4:12)
  • Pray for those students that experience rejection and bullying from other students and teachers. Ask God to provide them with people that love and respect them unconditionally. (John 13:34; Romans 15:7)
  • Pray for those students that are struggling academically. Ask God to encourage them and strengthen their minds. Pray that God will give their teachers and parent’s wisdom to know how to best help them learn.
  • Pray they will not feel like failures, but will learn discipline. (I Thessalonians 5:14)

 

 Teachers

Pray:

  • Pray for our school teachers to have the wisdom needed to effectively impart knowledge to their students. A wise teacher makes learning a joy… (Proverbs 15:2a)
  • Pray for our school teachers that God will give them the grace to deal with day-to-day frustrations and problems.
  •  Pray that our school teachers would exhibit the life of Christ before our children. That they would be filled with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness and faithfulness.
  •  Pray to the one in charge of the harvesting, and ask him to recruit more effective teachers with integrity for our schools. ( See Matthew 9:38)
  • Ask God to rise up Godly educators who are dedicated to their field and can capture the hearts and minds of our nation’s youth on each level of education. (Colossians 1:9-10)
  • Pray our educators will pray unceasingly for guidance and wisdom to become the examples to their students. (I Peter 2:21) Pray they will know how to pray for their students.
  • Pray that teachers will impart godly wisdom to form godly character in their students. (Luke 6:40)

Parents

Pray:

  •  Pray for parents that they will love and support their children’s education at school, at home, and at church.
  • Pray for family stability and that God’s principles for the family will be honored and promoted in our schools. (Genesis 28:14)
  • Pray “Lord, without your help we are helpless, so as parents, be our guide as to how we can best communicate and encourage our teachers and how we can train our children.”

 

Administrators

  • Pray for the standard of excellence to be restored in our educational institutes and that our educators will pass on that spirit of excellence, requiring excellence, rather than sloth and ignorance. (Ecclesiastes 2:13-14)
  • Pray for the needed tools and proper facilities to teach our children.(Philippians 4:19)
  • Pray for the election of godly leaders on our school boards and in the administration of our schools. (I Timothy 2:1)
  • Pray for the support staff in the schools to treat the children with dignity and respect.
