PRAISE GOD FOR HIS WISDOM!

“Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable His judgments and His paths beyond tracing out!”                                                                                                                                                  Romans 11:33

God, we praise You for the depth of the riches of Your wisdom. Your ways and thoughts are so much higher than ours. We trust Your wisdom in Your dealings in the affairs of men and nations. We trust You with our lives!

 

PRAY FOR THANKFUL HEARTS!

“Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise, give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever, His faithfulness continues through all generations.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Psalm 100:4

We pray that children in our schools would be so aware of Your love, goodness and faithfulness that they begin to express thanks to You. Give to believers the boldness to tell others that You provide good gifts, especially that of forgiveness. Please do a deep work of cleansing in the hearts of our children so that they desire to enter Your presence with thanks and praise.

 

PRAY FOR HEARTS OF JOY!

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”                                                                                                                                     Psalm 51:1

 

Lord, there are teachers and students who desperately need Your joy. They are living in darkness; discouraged and without hope. They have become numb to emotions and blinded to truth. As ___________learns to trust You, fill him with Your joy and peace. May his renewed life be used to bring others to You.

 

Please pray for the students and staff of Toledo Public Schools and their superintendent, Dr. Durant.
