“The Angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him and delivers them.” Psalm 34:7
This is a custom painted picture presented to me by one of my sons as a birthday gift this year. I love it and every time I look at it I am reminded that angels are all around me and they protect and deliver me from harm because I serve a mighty God.
As our children and grandchildren go back to school, let us pray for their safety and protection from violence and evil. Let us pray for the teachers and administrators that they would teach and carry out their duties with joy, passion and diligence. That divine wisdom be given to them to lead young minds and souls in the direction they should go.
Let us pray over our children everyday as they go off to school. Teach them to pray for themselves and for their friends and classmates. Teach them that they are “the light of the World” if they carry Jesus in their heart. Teach them to be instruments of peace, encouragement, understanding and kindness.
I pray this year is filled with great achievements, joy, peace, eagerness to learn, positive friendships, safety and much growth for students, teachers and their parents.
