Add Prayer to Your Back-to-School List

Add Prayer to Your Back-to-School List
Posted 08/12/2016 12:23PM

By Misty McReady

Is prayer on your list of things to do to get ready for back to school?

If you do a Google search you will find unlimited lists and a plethora of advice on tips for getting ready for back to school. Most lists will contain things like:

  • Get School Supplies
  • Go Shopping for School Clothes or Order Uniforms
  • Get Backpack and Lunch Box
  • Get School Calendar and Schedule

Some back-to-school lists may recommend study websites like:

Other lists may include places to visit to get the brain on track like the Baltimore Zoo, Baltimore Aquarium, The National Zoo, The National Air and Space museum, The National Museum of American History. More Adventures destinations can be found on the Smithsonian website. These are all great recommendations and I will be doing many of these things. However I'dlike to challenge families everywhere to add Prayer to the top of your list. Start now!

Too often people wait until being faced with a trial or problem before seeking a "higher power" through prayer. There really is a "higher power!" It's God, simple as that. He is there for anyone who calls on Him. What if you were to put prayer at the top of your list of things to do to get ready for back to school?

Begin by asking God to prepare your heart, as a parent or guardian, to be patient and focused as this school year begins. Pray for and with your young student, that they would be filled with confidence and joy as they head to classes. Pray for those amazing teachers, faculty and staff who will all be facing a new bunch of young minds and hearts. Pray for friendships to blossom, new relationships to be made. Pray for those young hearts, that they will be protected. Pray that your children will learn to show love and compassion towards others.

I hope you will accept this challenge and see how God blesses the start of another school year. Your prayers will set the stage for the rest of the year.
