Tips for Praying for Schools

Posted in Education

Here are some parent tips for the school year:

1. Pray regularly for your children's teachers.
Make a list of your children's teachers, school principals, and other adults in their lives. Put this list in a place where you will be reminded daily to pray for them. Ask God how He wants to use you be a Godly influence in their lives this school year. Then, watch for the doors He opens!

2. Bless the teacher with an encouraging note.
Even within the first few days or weeks of the school year you can find something the teachers are doing that you appreciate. Let them know by writing a brief note of appreciation and encouragement.

Pray for Jefferson County Schools

Posted in Education

God has not forgotten the many prayers that we have sent up before the throne of God regarding our children and the Mountain of Education.   There are many people with a passion for taking back our land for Christ being moved by the Holy Spirit at this time, especially in the Evergreen area and Jefferson County, Colorado.   Specifically at this time pray for:

1.  Christians to be awakened to HIS purpose in our schools.  We NEED laborers set and ready to send out.
*  a strategy for reaching each and every church in our region ---
*  for each church to have a small team of 'like-minded" individuals who will fill the position of educational liaison from their  church to a central location
-- the purpose of which will be:
a.  to disperse information about what is happening in the school systems back to the body of Christ at each church
b.  to have a ready bank of names -- people who will put "feet" to their prayers and take  back our school boards and curriculum writing teams for Christ.
In Jeffco we need to take back Dist. 5, 2, and 1 -- We call it forth in the name of Jesus

Prayer in Schools

Posted in Education

50 Years Ago, Monday, June 25th... Prayer was removed from America's public schools.

In a 6-1 ruling, the United States Supreme Court decided in Engel v. Vitale, that it was unconstitutional for New York state education officials to compose an official school prayer and encourage its recitation in public schools. This decision further states that a minute of silence prior to starting the school day to ask for help in the custom of your religion was unacceptable, and that it was also unacceptable for objecting students to voluntarily leave the classroom during the dedicated minute.

How to Pray for Schools

Ordinary people can pray extraordinary, history-changing prayers (James 5:16- 18). Elijah prayed a simple prayer: “Answer me so that these people will know that You are God and that You are turning their hearts back again to You (1 Kings 18:36-37).” God answered that prayer with fire from heaven as a sign of His powerful presence, His judgment- on sin, and His worthiness to be worshipped. God, do it again!
