Praying for our Children

Moms in Touch is a wonderful organization whose purpose is to intercede for our children and their schools. They have a card titled, “Mom will you pray for me?” It provides scriptures to pray for our children and their school. Today I am going to record for you these prayers. Let us use our devotional time to pray for our children. If you do not have children please use this time to pray for children God will put on your heart and the schools in your community.

Almighty God, may no one take our school captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.
