Prayer Prescription for This Date

PRAYER Rx --- November 5

Dear Lord, we ask that You hear our prayers today for those parents and teachers who are discouraged with our public school system. Many teachers find that they are deterred from teaching as they would like, and many parents are fearful of what their children are learning and much of what they aren't learning. ... Other parents are home schooling and find themselves criticized, and under pressure if they teach Christian ethics. ... To many parents, "it takes a village ..." has come to mean more government control. Parents often feel that they are losing control of their children to the peer-pressure in their schools, where there is often no teaching of right and wrong, or the meaning of virtue. ... Remind us, that Abraham Lincoln said, "The philosophy of the classroom in one generation is the philosophy of the government in the next!" ... Let us prayerfully consider the concerns of these parents and teachers who are facing these problems of our schools today, for as citizens, and as Christians, we too, need to be concerned!

In Jesus' name we pray.
