Praise God, Provider of Courage
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
We praise You for being a constant presence in our lives. No matter where we go or what we are going through, You promise to never leave us. Your Holy and Powerful presence gives us courage to persevere.
Pray for Hearts of Courage
“Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!” Psalm 27:14
God, often times we are quick to respond to a situation, but waiting on Your timing and for Your voice to guide us takes great courage. We ask that you give students and staff the ability to pause and consider the best response to each circumstance. May they wait on Your timing and remember that often times the best response is no response at all.
Pray for Hearts to Have Courageous Faith
“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.” 1 Corinthians 16:13
We declare that students, staff, families and the community stand up for what is right despite fear or the pressures surrounding them. Lord, You displayed the utmost courage when You went to the cross on our behalf. Despite fear, angst and being ridiculed, You followed through with God’s will. May we as a community become aware of situations of bullying, lying, someone being left out, abuse, neglect, and __________________, then follow through with courage to do what is right and handle the situation according to Your will.
“Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference.” – Max Lucado, pastor, speaker, and author
Mission: to see every school covered in prayer so that the power and presence of God are experienced in our communities.
