United Back 2 School Prayers-Protection

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)

The day after the Labor Day is the first day of school for public and private schools around the world although many returned to school last week. We need to consistently pray united back to school prayers for our children, parents, teachers, the school board and the entire school system. 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.

We need to pray for the educational mountain sphere that affects our children and youth’s minds and impacts their lives. Yes, our educational system can be changed significantly by united (corporate) and individual prayers.  Let us pray and put as I always say “put hands and feet” on those prayers and take strategic action to make a difference in our school system.

Pray for the school your child attends as you drive your child to school. Pray for a school in your neighborhood. Encourage your children to pray for their school and teachers.

Parents and the community need to unite in prayer in our neighborhoods and on the school grounds to serve as prayer warriors who battle in the spiritual realm for the lives of children and teenagers as they go off to school and colleges for at least a half hour to one hour each day.

Let’s challenge ourselves to daily pray for the protection of our children and that God will deliver them from evil and thwart every scheme of the enemy.
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, 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.

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/she 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.

Your name, O Lord is a strong tower into which the righteous may run and find security, safety and protection. Amen.

Psalm 56:9; Psalm 94:22; Psalm 144:2; Deuteronomy 32:38; 1Peter 5:7; Matthew 28:20; Galatians 1:4; Psalm 46:1; Matthew 4:6; Psalm 91; Psalms119:116-117; Proverbs 30:5

Prayer Tools and Pointers for Parents

Prayer Tools  and Pointer for Parents

School is back in session. Join Global Missions Prayer Force, Founder Minetta Hare; The Children of Hope Partnership Campaign, Visionary Apostle Hare; Messiah Baptist Church and others as we pray for our children, schools, teachers and the educational system. The few prayer pointers for parents provide effective ways to pray for your children.

Global Mission Prayer Force and the Children of Hope Partnership Campaign kick off their Back to School Prayer Campaign on September 1, 2017. Please provide your child’s name, age and school so we can corporately and individually pray for them.

 

Prayer is the most powerful parenting tool for mother and fathers. Here are a few creative ways for parents -you to pray for children. Use these tools as you pray for your children without ceasing. 1 Thess 5:17. However, remember every parent should take the time to sit before the Lord to pray for their children.

  1. Drive –through prayer. We have drive through banks, restaurants, and pharmacies. Why not drive through prayer? When you drive through your neighborhood, past schools and friends’ homes, you can pray for kids and their families. Intentionally drive past your children’s schools and pray for the school. One mother said she drove intentionally past her children’s junior high school. The time spent praying was less than a minute but several times a week over 2 years amounted to a lot of prayers. Get out and stand in front of the school and pray there on the grounds.
  2. Write it down. Like grocery shopping without a list, you have a hard time remembering what to pray about without writing it down. Keep a small notebook in your purse and a larger one in your home to remind yourself of how you can specifically pray for your family needs. Yes, write specific concerns to pray for children.
  1. Double the effort. Join with another parent or a group of friends. “I’ll pray for your kids if you’ll pray for mine” motivates.  Agree to pray for a particular length of time, such as a school year or sports season. Knowing that your friend is counting on you should motivate you.
  2. Double the effort by parents joining to pray in a prayer of agreement for 5 minutes twice a week. You agree what you are praying about for your children and call on the phone or on a conference call line. You can also meet for coffee to pray for your children at the same time and place.
  3. Pray by the book. “Pray as you read” is another great method. One mother shared that when she read about Daniel facing the lions, she seeks God for the kind of courageous faith for her children. Queen Esther’s confidence in God’s faithfulness becomes a prayer request for your daughter. Paul’s boldness is something one mother prays for her sons.  In addition, browse the Psalms for specific prayers: “Your word is a lamp to (child’s name)’s feet and a light for his/her path” (Psalm 119:105) or “Teach (child’s name) O’ Lord, to follow your decrees: then (he or she) will keep them to the end”. (Psalm 119:33).
  4. In the moment. Sometimes as you working doing your daily rounds: walking the dog, driving to work and preparing dinner pray. Review all the activities posted on the refrigerator door gives you the place to start. I think this is what the Apostle Paul meant when he encouraged us to “pray continually”. ( 1Thess 4:17).

School is about to start up again and some have already started.  We need to begin a united  cry out in prayer in  the cities of Detroit, Chicago and where you live for our children and the schools they attend.

Cry out today “Lord bless our children and the schools they attend”, See Lam 2:19 and then also specifically and scripturally pray the prayers below or as led by the Holy Spirit. 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 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.

We must put what I call “some feet on our prayers”. That means participate in  school meetings. Vote in the election and become aware of issues regarding the educational system. Adopt a school and pray for it every day. Speak up ! Pray  much! Mothers and Fathers join forces. See http://momsinprayer.org/

Through prayer the right leaders will arise to enable the community to come together to take productive and strategic action.

Can prayer change public schools? Yes, back to school prayers and prayer period can. Believe it!

Parents and the community need to unite in prayer in our neighborhoods and on the school grounds to serve as prayer warriors who battle in the spiritual realm for the lives of children and teenagers as they go off to school and colleges for at least a half hour to one hour every week. 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. ”

“Lord we pray that you cover the children and youth 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”.( from Power-Packed Prayers for Public Schools by Ida Rose Heckard).

Action Plan :

Pray for the school your child attends as you drive your child to school .Pray for a school in your neighborhood. 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!

Prayer Points for Our School Children and Youth

Pray: Here are just a few prayers to pray:
• Daily pray for the safety of our children and that God will deliver them from evil and thwart every scheme of the enemy. Lord we pray that you cover the children and youth 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”.( from Power-Packed Prayers for Public Schools by Ida Rose Heckard)

  • 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 the school is structurally and environmentally sound that children will be safe. Pray for the right resources for our children such as books, new technological tools and basics like clean rooms, toiletries

Back 2 School Prayers Part II: Prayers for Teachers and Adminstrators

back to school prayers imagesCA9SWSQH

Yesterday September 3, 2013 I called for Back 2 School United Prayers for our children and the schools they attend and posted about 10 specific prayer points for our school children.http://www.ladyofprayer.com/?p=1404 >

We need to continually uplift the entire educational system and all those involved in it which includes our teachers and administrators. We need teachers who are committed to effectively teaching our children. There is no doubt there are some committed excellent teachers. Schools must be safe for teachers as well as students. In 2011 a student hit a teacher in the back with a stapler, hid in a closet and started hitting the teacher in the chest when the teacher opened the closet door.

On the other hand we must guard against negative attitudes of teachers that adversly affects how and what they teach children. We cannot tolerate teachers such as Jennifer O’ Brien who made negative remarks about a group of largely Black and Hispanic first graders when she complained that she was a “warden for future criminal’s”. Our children are worthy of respect and are entitled to the best education they can possibly obtain in a positive and nurturing enviroment.

The prayer of agreement is powerful and we must join our voices and hearts to consitently pray for those involved in educating our children. Below are specific prayer points to pray for our teachers and adminstrators. https://www.facebook.com/PrayActWriteRight

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 for the one in charge of the screening and hiring of teachers, and pray that he/she recruits effective teachers with integrity and a true heart for teaching children 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)

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.
( Many prayer points for teachers and adminstrators were adopted from From Power-Packed Prayers for Public Schools by Ida Rose Heckard)
