Prayer, Plain and Simple

Prayer, Plain and Simple


A Prayer for School

posted by Mark Herringshaw

A couple years ago I worked with Jennifer Schuchmann – my co-author in Six Prayers God Always Answers, and Nine Ways God Always Speaks - on a project to help parents pray for their children in school. One of our outcomes was 30 simple prayers – one for each day of September – targeting a different specific need.  

 

Each day this month I’ll post one of these prayers and I invite you to take up the challenge to pray these short requests on behalf of your children, grandchildren, relatives and friends who are heading off to school. Think of the power we can muster together if we join together asking God and believing in faith that he will act on their behalf!

 

For September 1

“God, you are good and you are strong, so we ask that you protect our school and make it a great learning environment for all who come through the doors.”

A Prayer For Our Kids Today
If you speak good words rather than worthless ones, you will be my spokesman. You must influence them; do not let them influence you! Jeremiah 15:19b We utter hundreds of words a day. How many of them are constructive? Oh that we would be obedient to the countless commands in Scripture to guar

My Unruly, Devastating Tongue. I Repent.
If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. James 1:26 We can make a large horse go wherever we want by means of a small bit in its mouth. And a small rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot choose

The Shortest Prayer Can Be the Most Powerful
A friend of mine told me recently the story of a two-word prayer that she prayed that changed her life forever. Moments earlier she had given birth – an emergency C-section – to her firstborn, a son. In the midst of fear and elation, she suddenly realized that she wasn't up for the job. She coul
