I’m so excited that we will be uniting to Pray for Schools! Pray for Schools is a coalition of Christian ministries inviting the body of Christ in America to engage in prayer for the emerging generations in three ways
- Mobilize churches to set aside a portion of their worship services on the third Sunday of September to unite in prayer for students and teachers (This year, it is September 18th)
- Invite people to pray for 30 days in September, following a prayer guide that can be downloaded from www.prayforschool.com or followed on social media
- Encourage believers of all ages and from all walks of life to continue to pray for schools, utilizing the various initiatives featured on the Pray for Schools website (http://www.prayforschools.us)
An Appeal to Heaven, the theme of this year’s prayer guide, is a modern take on a centuries-old call to prayer, first utilized by America’s Founding Fathers: http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pine_Tree_Fiag

The curators of the original prayforschools movement, we have a rich 25-year history of intercession and prayer mobilization for youth ministry and the emerging generations.With so many changes swiftly sweeping through our schools and nation, it is more important than ever to turn to Lord for wisdom and guidance. The Pray for Schools initiative hopes to unite Christians to pray for our schools for 30 consecutive days in September. On the third Sunday of the month, September 18th, we are requesting that churches publically pray for and recognize students, teachers, administrators, and all in the education realm! I will be posting the daily prayers here on my blog, if you’d like to follow along with the prayers and scripture each day.
