Father in Heaven, we come to You today with thankful hearts on this National Day of Prayer. On this occasion, we thank You for the education we have and the educational opportunities all around us- for ourselves and for our children.
Your word tells us in the book of Proverbs that “the beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord.” We know that our schools and colleges have not always respected this. So today, we ask that You work in them. Enable our educational institutions to return to truth and Judeo-Christian ethics. Provide our children with a safe atmosphere conducive to learning. Raise up excellent educators who fear You. Provide equal opportunities for every student to achieve their full potential.
We pray for spiritual renewal on our college campuses. Bless those ministries who encourage this. Establish an awareness of You that draws souls to Christ Jesus, our Lord and Savior. We thank you for all that You have done, are doing and will do in this area of our nation. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
