A new month! We continue to pray for, with and through the people of Wyoming. Let us seek the Lord in all we do. Let us discover the joy that awaits us in the Lord!
In September, let us focus our collective prayers on education. What’s your perspective of education? Are you used to being on the instructional end, or the learning end? Are you someone who trains others? Are you in need of learning a new skill? Are you a student, or a teacher? The word education alone can be diverse in meaning. Context will dictate the manor in which it’s pursued. Wether you have a desire to learn, an urge to show someone else “how to do it”, or maybe resist change, education is around us all day, everyday.
It’s a gift. The fact that our brains can do what they do, is a celebration filled in joy. Every moment we can elevate our level of understanding (of anything) to a new plane, is proof we are designed to progress. The fact that we are given freedom to do so, is an opportunity to grow by way of maturing our pursuits. When education is celebrated with responsibility, passion, and sincerity, reward is abundant in the teacher and the student!
Our Lord Jesus! O’ our Teacher! our Rabbi! You create an environment of education in and around us everyday!
Let us see with Your eyes! Let us hear with Your ears! Turn our hearts and minds into sponges, soaking up things You desire us to know. May the Lord deposit and withdrawal from our minds as He sees fit. May the actions of our minds lead to a commerce worthy of tithe in Your name!
“because wisdom is protection as silver is protection; but the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of its owner.” Ecclesiastes 7:12 CSB
Lord, let us compare our minds to that of a savings account, storing knowledge to be withdrawn and spent on something worthy of You. Knowledge spent on timely circumstance, will increase that value into wisdom. Just like money, it’s worth nothing until it’s given up.
In addition, like a savings account can be a safety net, so to wisdom can be. The more we learn in Your name, the more we build our minds up and lessen the risks that lurk.
Lord we give You all praise! You’ve designed the human mind! You designed each mind on purpose for a purpose! Keep us from sin, so that it does not undermine the ability of the mind. Keep us from from sin, as not to corrupt our thinking. Keep us from sin, so that are minds are not left bankrupt. Let us not exploit wisdom for selfish gain!
Increase wisdom in us so that we may be free to tithe our knowledge! Let us be free to learn more and more to give more and more!
We thank You for the people of Natrona County! Thank You for the blessings found in them. Thank You for the contributions they make to their county and throughout Wyoming.
Lord we pray with people of Natrona County! We pray the Good News You bring finds its way into every mind! We pray for the 47,670 people in Natrona County who have yet to connect into a gospel church in this county. May they continue to find truth in churches like, Casper Faith and Restoration Church. May our Lord expand, elevate and reinforce the credibility of the local church.
The time for growth through education has come. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
