Back to School Prayers

What's the most essential back to school item?

It’s that time of year again – back to school. We have taken the time buy our kids fresh new school supplies, time to purchase new shoes , and don’t forget those amazing new coordinated dress t-shirts and chapel uniforms. These are just a few of the basic essentials that our children need when heading back to school.

But let’s not forget the most important essential for our kids: prayer.

Nothing can take the place of covering our school, teachers, administration, and students in prayer on a consistent basis. James 5:16 (NIV) says, "Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective."
