PRAISE OUR GOD OF PEACE!
“Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times and in every way.” II Corinthians 3:16
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27
God, we acknowledge You as the Lord of peace. Your peace is not dependent on circumstances or human effort. We also praise You for giving Your peace to those who would receive it, that we may not be troubled or afraid.
PRAY FOR HEARTS OF PEACE
“Great peace have those who love Your law & nothing can make them stumble.” Psalm 119:165
“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.” Colossians 3:15
“Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace.” Romans 14:19
God, we need to experience Your peace in our classrooms, our schools and our hearts. We pray that Your peace would rule in our hearts and that students would make every effort to do what leads to peace.
PRAY FOR PEACE FOR EMOTIONALLY DISTURBED STUDENTS
God, we ask for a special outpouring of Your peace in the hearts of students who are disturbed in their emotions. You know each individual and each circumstance. You are the One who can silence the voices that need to be silenced and bring deep, lasting peace. “Why are you so downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God.” Psalm 43:5
Please pray for the students and staff of Northwood Local Schools and their Superintendent, Mr. Greg Clark.
