Praise the God of New Beginnings!

“And He who was seated on the throne said, ‘Behold, I am making all things new.’”

Revelation 21:5

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”

Isaiah 43:18,19

God, we praise You for being the God of new beginnings! You are the Creator, the One who does new things. Open our eyes to perceive what You are doing.

Pray for Hearts to Experience a Fresh Start at School

Lord, we ask You to give students and staff a fresh start for the new school year.

May the past be the past. “One thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead” (Phil. 3:13). May they look forward to a clean slate, embracing the opportunity to learn and grow and to serve others.

Pray for Hearts to Experience a Fresh Start with God

Pour our Your Spirit on each person in our school community, creating new, spiritual lives in the students and staff. You say that “if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone and the new has come (II Corinthians 5:17). We trust that a new start with God will transform homes, schools and communities.

Please pray for the staff and students of Archbold Area Schools and their Superintendent, Mr. Aaron Rex.
