“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” – Proverbs 4:23 NLT
OBSERVATION: When I chose safety of our schools to pray for, I must admit the violence in schools came to mind. We all must be diligent in our prayers for those events, but I will also pray for the weapon the enemy has used for generations. The human heart. The Bible says the heart is deceitful above all things. If we are not careful to lead our hearts it can be a tool used by the enemy from the inside. My prayer is that our young people will realize that our value doesn’t come from this world. Our value comes from the Creator God and the value He set on us…the value of His only son Jesus. Child, you are valuable, and you are worth dying for!
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, we humbly come asking for protection for our schools. We pray for our students, teachers, administrators, and parents. We see the news and it is easy to take our eyes off of You. God, help us to lead our hearts toward You. Help us to understand that our worth comes from You and help us to love one another. May revival break out and I pray it starts in our schools. God protect us from any weapon formed against us either from the outside, or on the inside of us. Wrap your big ole loving arms around us all, and become more real to us every day. In the unmatched name of Jesus I pray, Amen.
