PRAISE GOD, OUR ROCK!

“The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer: My God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”                                                                                                                 Psalm 18:2

“Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the Rock eternal.                                                               Psalm 26:4

We praise You, our rock, our fortress and our deliverer. We place our trust in You.

PRAY FOR HEARTS TO STAND ON THE ROCK

“They remembered that God was their rock, that the Most High God was their Redeemer.”                       Psalm 78:35

“He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.”                                                                                                                                                                                Psalm 40:2

Lord, when we make decisions apart from You, we can find ourselves in a slimy pit, having slipped from the rock of sure footing. Remind each individual in this school community that You, the Most High God, desire to be their Rock and their Redeemer. Thank You for providing a firm place to stand.

PRAY FOR FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS BUILT ON GOD’S ROCK SOLID FOUNDATION

“The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.”                                                                                                                                  Matthew 7:25

May family relationships in our school communities be built on the truths of Your word, not on secular opinion. We pray that parents would take the lead in building their homes on the rock. May children  walk in the confidence that as they choose Your ways that the interactions at home would reflect the healing, peace and joy that You promise. Protect these homes and build them up in Your strength.

Please pray for the students and staff of Pike-Delta-York Schools and their Superintendent, Dr. Ted Haselman.

“We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties.”                                                                 Oswald Chambers
