PRAISE GOD, WHO IS WITH US!

“The angel went to (Mary) and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”  Luke 1:28

Lord, we praise and thank You for being with us. Although You are the creator of the universe and are the King of Kings, You humble Yourself and initiate a relationship with us.

 

PRAY FOR HEARTS WILLING TO SERVE

“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May it be to me as you have said.”                                       Luke 1:38

Just as Mary yielded her will to God, we pray that our children will come to know You personally and offer their lives to serve You. Let them know that serving You and others will be used to advance Your kingdom and will produce joy in their hearts.

 

PRAY FOR BELIEVING HEARTS

“Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished.”               Luke 1:45

May ______________hear Your voice and believe that what You say to him will be accomplished. May he increase in faith and have the courage to follow Your plan, even if it means being misunderstood by others.

 

Please pray for the students and staff of the charter schools.

“In Gethsemane the holiest of all petitioners prayed three times that a certain cup might pass from Him. It did not. After that the idea that prayer is recommended to us as a sort of infallible gimmick may be dismissed.”                                                                                                                                                                                                            C.S.
