Dear Christian educators,
It doesn't seem possible that we have prayed Scripture for the last 40 days. What an honor and privilege to share with you. May God bless you and your family as you celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ tomorrow. May the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be pleasing to the Lord for the remainder of the school year.
Psalm 143:1 English Standard Version (ESV)My Soul Thirsts for YouA Psalm of David.
Hear my prayer, O Lord;
give ear to my pleas for mercy!
In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness!
At the conclusion of this Lenten season, who could have ever imagined a Holy Week and Easter celebrations as shut-ins? Many Christians around the world will come outside tomorrow morning at sunrise and lift their hands to the Maker of Heaven and Earth to stand in awe of the ultimate sacrifice ever made. Let us give grateful thanks to Jesus as we gather tomorrow in creative ways.
I have a daily podcast, "Around the Word in 180 Days" that is now in special edition mode called, "While We Wait....." where we read the Bible with our brothers and sisters in the public schools. Since this school year has been interrupted by the Coronavirus COVID-19, it is all the more imperative that we are in the Word of God and prayer for strength, wisdom, grace and mercy. While we wait......we will be reading one chapter from the Book of Proverbs each day, praying Scripture, meditating and praying community prayers until the school year resumes. Please consider joining us.
What a blessing to pray Your Word these last 40 days. Your Word is so encouraging, so instructional and so convicting. Hear my prayer, O Lord. Please give ear to my pleas for mercy. I yearn to love and love others as You have commanded us to do. In Your faithfulness, answer me in Your righteousness. Will You open the hearts of all educators to pray deeply and walk with You each and every day in school? May our prayers be a sweet incense to You. I love You Lord and thank You for the risen life of Your Only Son, Jesus. I ask in His Beautiful Name. Amen.
He is risen! He is risen indeed!
