A Strategic Call for Transformational Prayer for our Schools

Weekly Prayer Focus

Blessing, Refresing and New Identity

For I will pour out water on the thirsty land and streams on the dry gournd; I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring and My blessing on your descendants; And they willl spring up among the grass, like poplars by streams of water. This one will say, 'I am the Lord's'; and that one will call on the name of Jacob: An another will write on his hand, 'Belonging to the Lord.' (Isaiah 44:3)

Father, we thank you for this incredible promise that You will bring refreshing to the driest places! where it has been spiritually dry, we ask for streams of the Holy Spirit, the Water of Life, to now pour through our schools and that this would cause our children to thrive and flourish, like poplar trees by the riverside.

We ask for an unprecedented outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our schools, that You would literally flood the atmosphere of the classrooms of San Antonio with Your Holy presence! We pray that Christian students would be greatly empowered and emboldened to share the gospel, and courageous in their witness despite any opposition.  May they see a demonstration of God's power on their campuses and may Christians there truly be light and salt, in Jesus' name.  

We pray for all campus ministries, Bible studies, prayer meetings, and Christian clubs,and for those who speak regularly at assemblies.  We ask that You would refesh these ministries, bring them gifted staff, give favor and dramatic financial breakthroughs, and open doors to schools for them, like never before!

Thank you for Your promise to bless our children and that because of Your blessing they will find their true identity in belonging to You, their Father and Creator. We ask that You would toch them so powerfully that they would acknowledge publicly that they belong to You, "and another will write on his hand, 'Belonging to the Lord." (Isa 44:3)

Please would You silence the negative voices telling these students they are worthless or unwanted.  May each one encounter Your love in a supernatural way this year! 

Jesus called the children to him and said, "Let the little children come to me,

and do not hinder them for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." (Luke 18:16)

Thank you for Your heart of love and Your special concern for our youngest children! We pray for every preschooler and kindergartener in San Antonio and their teachers and aides.  May the Kingdom of God belong to them, even as Your Word says. 

We ask that these tender young hearts and minds would keep their innocence and purity.  We pray that You would raise up an army of godly Christian teachers who are divinely gifted and called to teach and mold this impressionable age group.

Pour out Your Spirit on these young ones, we pray! May 2015-2016 be a year of great spiritualharvest from our preschools to institutions of higher learning in San Antonio.
