Heavenly Father, I lift the school administrations, teachers, school boards and decision makers to your mercy seat for your favor and blessing as they plan for the coming school year. We can’t see through the fog of conflicting reports and studies, nor navigate the labyrinth of regulation and mandates; but you can, Father. You know your plan for all of this. You recon the future. You see the unseen and know the unknown. I pray the school officials turn to you for wisdom and discernment. Grant them new ideas, better methods and superior programs for the sake of coming out of this with better educated kids, not kids lacking in education. Protect the teachers and the students. Grant sweet spirits in the discussions. Your will be done in each school, for each child. I ask in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6 ESV)
