Praise our God of Joy!
“I give You praise, Lord, because You have granted me eternal blessings and made me glad with the joy of Your presence.” Psalm 21:6
“Splendor and majesty are before Him; strength and joy are in His dwelling place.” I Chronicles 16:27
God, we praise You, the source of joy. You fill us with joy in Your presence. May our school community experience Your strength and joy.
Pray for Hearts of Joy
“Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” I Thessalonians 5:16-18
“When anxiety was great within me, Your consolation brought joy to my soul.” Psalm 94:19
Lord, we pray that You will fill the students and staff with joy as they learn together today. May they experience the joy that is only found in You as they navigate situations and relationships with prayer and thankful hearts.
Pray for Joyful Hearts in the Lives of Students with Special Needs
We bring to you all students who are dealing with physical, mental, emotional needs or spiritual needs. Where there have been wounding or negative labels, we pray that You would speak words of life and hope. May each student be drawn by Your cords of loving kindness and experience Your joy, protection and purpose. “The joy of the Lord is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10).
Please pray for the students and staff of Oregon City Schools and their Superintendent, Mr. Hal Gregory.
“I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.” -Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States
