Praise God for His Kindness!

“…in order that in the coming ages He might show the incomparable riches of His grace, expressed in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus.”                                                                                                                                         Ephesians 2:7

“But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy.”                                                                                                                    Titus 3:4,5

God, we acknowledge Your kindness and love shown to us not because we have earned it, but because of Your mercy. We praise you!

Pray for Hearts that Pursue Kindness

“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”                                                                                                                                   Colossians 3:12

“Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life, righteousness and honor.”                       Proverbs 21:21

Lord, we pray that everyone in our school community will pursue the righteousness and kindness

that come only from You. Turn selfish ambitions and motivations into kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

Pray for Hearts to Show Kindness to Others

“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”         Ephesians 4:32

“She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.”                           Proverbs 31:26

We pray for students and staff to experience Your forgiveness personally which will result in showing kindness to others. May the teaching of kindness be supreme in every classroom.

Please pray for the students and staff of Ottawa Hills Schools and their Superintendent, Dr. Kevin Miller.

“We think of prayer as a preparation for work, or a calm after having done work, whereas prayer is the essential work.”                                                   -Oswald Chambers, early 20th century Scottish Baptist evangelist and teacher
