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, I am convicted that we need to consider praying Scripture next school year. If you would like to join me, I will be praying Scripture daily on my podcast, "Around the Word in 180 Days" beginning in mid-August. There is no need to wait for me. What a blessing it would be to choose a Scripture for each of your remaining days of this school year. Read the Scripture and then rephrase it in a prayerful manner using the key words and personalizing it to God. When we pray the Word, we know we are in His will. May the Lord bless you with a strong finish as you represent Him the remaining of the 2018-2019 school year.
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.
