Join us on our new podcast each weekday for an interesting story, well told, from Charisma News. Listen at

"Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly. Nor stands in the path of sinners. Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night."

—Psalm 1:1 (NKJV)

Lascivious behavior, drugs and alcohol have all become strongholds within the American school system. At the same time, we've removed prayer and Scripture from curriculum. Is it any wonder why U.S. students are losing academic ground in comparison to other young people around the world?

We must ask God to forgive us for pushing Him out of our schools. As we ask for His presence to be restored in schools, know that He is able to promote leaders in the education system who fear Him and will fight to return godly principles to the classroom. Let's commit to praying for godly teachers and administrators.

  • Pray that God would protect our students from the attacks of the enemy.
  • Pray that educators would teach godly principles.
  • Pray that our government officials would be able to make wise decisions with regard to our children.


We pray for godly teachers and administrators to teach your principles in schools throughout our country. Lord, we pray that Your principles would be taught in the school systems. We also pray that You would protect the students from any hurt harm or danger, and that the government would make wise decisions regarding our children.
