February 17: A Prayer for Victory Preparatory Academy

Majestic Father, we praise and thank You for our educators and students of Victory Preparatory Academy.  Thank You for Rev. Lisa Berry Dockery and staff.  Thank You for surrounding the educators and students with favor like a shield.  We exalt You, our God and King, and praise Your Name forever and ever.  We will praise You every day and forever.  Lord, You are great and most worthy of praise; no one can measure Your greatness.  Each generation will tell its children of Your mighty acts and proclaim Your power. Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.  Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains and Your justice like the ocean depths.

Triumphant Father, we confess that, like Jesus, the students on both Victory Preparatory campuses will grow in wisdom, stature and favor with You and all people.  We declare that they will focus on their studies and not grow distracted or complacent. Each student will work willingly in their classes as though they were working for You. They will respect and obey the instructions of their parents, teachers and school administrators.  We confess that each student will come into the knowledge of who they are in You.  They will stop copying the behavior and customs of this world and let You transform them into new people by changing the way they think about themselves and their futures. When they return to their home environments, they will not hide the light of Christ, but will allow it to shine so others will see their good works and glorify You, their Heavenly Father.  We declare that the wise instruction of their teachers will be like a life-giving fountain to each student.

Holy Spirit, show me how to pray for the students at Victory Preparatory Academy:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, impart into our students Your spirit of excellence, like You did Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego. Bless our educators for their service to the Houston community.  Help them to remain committed to their educational “calling.”  Give each teacher wisdom, creativity, and grace to teach each child according to his or her needs, level of intelligence, and learning capabilities. Release a steady stream of resources for Victory Preparatory so both campuses will always have the equipment, resources and materials they need to effectively educate the students.  Bless the homes of our students to be places of love, peace and support.  We ask You to increase the capacity of our students to learn, comprehend and excel in all areas of their education including: reading, mathematics, science, arts, and all required testing. During their extracurricular activities, please protect them from injury.

Merciful Father, forgive the sins of our educators and students (list the specific sins).  Forgive those of us in the Body of Christ, for being negligent in teaching our students to first reverence You, which is the foundation of true knowledge.  Forgive those parents for sacrificing their students to excessive television, video games, music and to the ways and customs of the world.  Forgive us, as a nation, for devaluing the worth of teachers and education. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind our educators and students of Victory Prep Academy of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive.  (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help our educators and students of Victory Preparatory Academy to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Almighty King, You are the only true God.  You are the living God and the everlasting King.  The whole earth trembles at Your anger.  The nations cannot stand up to Your wrath.  Great and mighty is Your reign!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Thank You for helping them with their studies and blessing them in the classroom.  Thank You for blessing them with scholarships, financial aid and employment. We thank You for state and federal funds to be made available for the college education. Lord, we are grateful and we bless Your wonderful Name. Today, we come clapping our hands and shouting to You with joyful praise.  You are the Lord, Most High, and You are awesome!  You are the great King of all the earth.

Eternal Father, we confess Your Word over our college students as they pursue their education and over the persons who pay their tuition.  We are expecting You to work effectually in them, creating within them the power and desire to study and complete their course work.  We confess that favor will surround our students and they will have good relationships with their teachers and fellow students. They will put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within them and will not defile themselves with the ways of the world through fornication, excessive drinking and illegal drug use, unclean behavior, ungodly passions, evil desire, covetousness, rebellion, and idolatry.  We declare that those who are paying for tuition will have more than enough.  Their needs will be supplied from Your glorious riches which have been given to them in Christ Jesus.  Like Jesus, we decree that our college students will increase in wisdom and stature and they have favor with You, their teachers, school administrators, and fellow students.

Please encourage those who are struggling financially and want to give up.  Please continue to open financial doors and reveal scholarships, grants, and other financial aid opportunities.  Increase the self confidence of our students so that they will have the boldness to share their faith.

Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind our college students of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive.  (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help our college students to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

 

Lord, Your Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom.  You rule throughout all generations.  Lord, You are King!  You are robed in majesty and armed with strength. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken. Lord, Your throne has stood from time immemorial.  You are from the everlasting past.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

January 29: A Prayer for the Educational System in the Greater Houston Area

Eternal Father, we bless You.  Thank You, Lord, for the educators who instruct and guide our children.  Thank You for the school districts in the Greater Houston Area including Houston Independent School District (ISD), Fort Bend ISD, Pearland ISD, Alvin ISD, Alief ISD, Spring Branch ISD, Katy ISD, and Conroe ISD.  Thank You for sending men and women who are committed to providing quality education for our children in all grade levels; regardless of ethnicity or economic status.   We praise Your Name with singing and honor You with thanksgiving.  We praise You, Lord God of Israel, who made the heavens and the earth!  The Godly will rejoice in You, Lord, and find shelter. And those who do what is right will praise You. Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains; Your justice is like the ocean depths.

 

Lord of Heaven’s Armies, as kings of the King, and lords of the Lord, we command justice to run down like water within our local school districts and righteousness like a mighty stream.  We decree that equality will rule in every ISD in the Greater Houston Area. As the teachers prepare their curriculum and programming, we confess that the same quality of education they would expect their child to receive is the same quality that they will sow into the lives of our children.  We declare that the educators, board members and administrators of our school districts, who confess the Name of Jesus, will trust in You with all of their hearts and not lean to their own understanding. They will seek Your will in all that they do and we trust You to direct their paths as they lead and guide our children.  We decree that when it comes to educating our children, the educators, board members and administrators will do what is right, just, and fair and they will find the right way to go.  Wisdom will enter their heart and knowledge will fill them with joy.  Wise choices will watch over them and understanding will keep them safe.  Father, You do not show favoritism, so we declare that our educators, board members and administrators will not show favoritism when it comes to allocating resources and funds.

 

Holy Spirit, please draw any unbelieving educators, board members and administrators to our Father.  Dispatch laborers into their paths who will minister to them the Gospel of Jesus Christ so that they will call upon His Name and be saved. Please grant wisdom to our educators and help them to receive Your knowledge and understanding.  Lord, grant a treasure of common sense to those who are honest and be a shield to those who walk with integrity. Please improve the lines of communication between the educators and the parents.  Reveal any deceit, injustice, racism, or sexism.  Convict the hearts of those who are doing wrong so that they will turn from their wickedness and do what is right.  Encourage those who are committed to our children and providing an excellent education.

This month, I will pray for the teachers at the following school:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Merciful Father, forgive those teachers who allow their personal feelings to affect how they educate our children.  Forgive those school board members who abuse their authority to further their own agendas and causes.  Forgive those administrators for racism, sexism, lying, cheating, and stealing. Forgive those ISD employees and officials for not being impartial and fair. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind our educators, school board members and administrators of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive.  (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, remind our educators, school board members and administrators not to yield to temptation, but deliver them from the evil one.

 

All wise King, You are the First and the Last; there is no other God.  There is no one like You.  You are our Redeemer and Creator.  You alone stretched out the heavens.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
