Back To School

I didn't get a chance to spend time on my Genesis study this morning as it is the first day back to school for my kiddos.  I'm sure there are many households experiencing the same as mine today (although some have been going for a month already!).  Either way, let's remember to keep our children in prayer as they need to continue to grow their roots deep down in God's love and grow in their faith.  Let's remember how it can be such a struggle to do what pleases God when everyone around them is doing what pleases themselves.  But also, let's pray that they have a great year of growth and learning.  This is a good prayer for all of us, young and old:

"When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to Him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen."  Ephesisans 3:14-21 (NLT)

Amen!

  1. One of my favourite scriptures for praying over my children, and because of you I will remember to pray it over them again as they resume school.
