PRAISE GOD, THE SOURCE OF TRUTH!

“Jesus said, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life.’”                                                                                  John 14:6

“I came to bring truth to the world. All who love the truth recognize that what I say is true.”  John 18:37

Lord, we praise You, as You are truth. You never lie and we can trust Your character.  May children across our city recognize You as the truth and praise You from their hearts.

 

PRAY FOR HEARTS THAT EMBRACE GOD’S TRUTH

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”                                                                      II Timothy 2:15

Lord, may children and teachers embrace Your truth, rejecting messages from our culture which deceive and destroy. We ask that You would bring Your words of truth to their minds and that they would correctly handle Your truth, allowing it to transform their hearts and their futures.

 

PRAY FOR HEARTS THAT HONOR GOD WITH THEIR WORDS

“Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”                               Proverbs 12:17

 

Lord, may ____________ honor You with his words, using self-control when speaking, with words that bless and do not curse. Allow his tongue to bring healing, comfort and encouragement. Transform his heart because You say that from the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks.

 

Please pray for the students and staff of Anthony Wayne Schools.

 

“God is looking for people to use, and if you can get usable, he will wear you out. The most dangerous prayer you can pray is this, ‘Use me.”                                                                                                                                                  -Rick Warren
