Pray with your children before you head out the door for school in the morning, even if you’re late. Dedicate WITH THEM this year of learning and living to the Lord. This is a big year ahead. It’s new, we’ve never done it before, we have no idea what God has planned for us as individuals, as families, as a school, as a nation. Here’s a blank spot of ground….set up a memorial stone saying, “We give this year to you, O Lord, bless us your children as we seek to obey You.” Consecrate the year, consecrate your sons and daughters, pray for the teachers, for the families.
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful, but his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.” Psalm 1:1-2
