First Day of School!
For all the moms and dads who have to say good-bye to their little ones on the first day of school:
As you pack your child’s lunch bag, pray.
Pray she will hunger for God’s word daily.
As your child climbs the huge steps in the bus,
and you wave goodbye, pray.
Ask God to keep her feet on the path of righteousness always.
As the day goes on and you wonder what she’s doing, pray.
Ask your Heavenly Father to protect her.
As you look over the papers she brings home each day, pray.
Pray that her mind will grown in knowledge of the Lord.
As you empty the backpack and find scraps of paper,
bits of crumbs, and pieces of broken pencil, pray.
Pray that God will take any broken pieces from the day
and bring healing and wholeness.
