Please be with my children today as they start school. Help them to grow more & more confident in the abilities you have given them. Help them to remember the values we have tried to instill in them. I pray that they are kind, helpful, respectful, brave & ready to learn today. Please be with the teachers that will guide them this year. Give them patience and endurance to help these little minds learn all that they need to learn this year. PLEASE be with the Mommas (& the Daddies). The sleepless nights, the tossing and turning, just fill us with peace. We know that you are looking over our children Lord, and when the anxiety starts to sneak in remind us that you are with them. Help them be a light for you today. In Jesus’ name, amen.
You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father. -Matthew 5:14-16
