Tammy Tangent Tuesdays
Pray for our Children, Schools and Staff
Hello Beautiful! I pray you are having another blessed week so far! It’s that time again, it’s Tammy Tangent Tuesdays!!! Since Jesus loves the little children of the world, shouldn’t we? With the new school year starting off so violently, it’s time that WE ALL COME TOGETHER IN AGREEMENT and begin praying for the hedge of protection to start surrounding our schools, the teachers, the staff, and all the precious children.
There is already too much crime infiltrating and infecting our schools today, and how simple and easy it is to believe that our children and schools are protected from all the ugly in the world. An easy solution to the problem is to take one or two minutes a day as you’re dropping your kids off at school, or even those precious grandbabies, and pray a quick prayer for the hedge of protection to surround every child, the school grounds, the teachers, staff members and the surrounding areas. Even when you pass by a school bus, just lifting that precious cargo to the Lord in a quick prayer can keep them protected. All God wants is for us to reach out and trust Him for the protection of those we are praying for!
If you’re walking your child to school, what an opportunity this is to witness and teach your child the importance of prayer. Explain to them that you will be hanging out for a couple of minutes extra to pray silently over the school. You never know, kids are bright and they want nothing more than to mirror their parents’ actions, so they may want to start praying with you. Before you know it, their friends will see you all praying and the domino effect exuding our dependence through prayer on God will be illuminated; and many parents and children will be coming together before school to pray, all because you silently prayed and walked out your faith. Such a huge testimony and witness! Also, let us not forget what an introduction to the many benefits in following Christ while being a part of a community illustrating L-O-V-E; being the hands and feet of God!
It’s a different world out there today, so we need to incorporate the armor of God (Ephesians 6:13-18) and instill the Biblical values and protection daily with our kids together. They need to be prepared and equipped; not sheltered and naive about what is happening in society today! Kids watch and will follow our lead; it’s up to ALL OF US to be great examples as parents, grandparents, teachers, aunts, and even mentors! How about just caring as a member of your community; remembering everyone affects others; good or bad. Those babies have a long road ahead of them! We need to help teach them and guide them by letting them know they’re not alone in this.
Let us never forget what 1 Timothy 2:1-2 urges us regarding examples in how to worship God through prayer:
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
Jesus intercedes on our behalf; shouldn’t we do the same for others? This is yet another way to be the hands and feet of God; and we all want and need to protect the purity and innocence of our children! ♥♥
Until next time…
Thank You For Being Beautiful You
