Hello Lord! Thank You starting each day full of Your blessings! Every day we begin as a song we sing to You! May we continue that song until we lay down for sleep, ready to sing again the next day!
You are Lord of our lives! Thank You for inviting us into Your Kingdom! You remove the burden of knowing it all from us. You care for us. You provide more than just sustenance for our bodies, You provide the very thing our souls need, everlasting life in You.
Our Lord, we are nothing without You. Sure, we can build ourselves up into an image of honor and prestige among our colleagues, peers and neighbors, but You are the One that can prepare us for Heaven. Let us not focus on the things that are left for moss and rust, spur our hearts to elevate our minds onto You!
Education is a gift! It’s a blessing found in You. To truly understand, gives us a predisposition to knowing You. Our brains are wired to gain, but for a purpose!
If I say to a teacher; “you give so much to the kids”, their response would be, “yeah, but I get so much back in return, they give me more than I give them”.
It’s because Lord, Your creative fingerprint is embedded in education itself. It seems counterintuitive to think we can get more back when we give, but that’s exactly what is found all over scripture in the entire Bible!
“In the same way, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. All of you clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.” 1 Peter 5:5 CSB
Lord, no one is above anyone else, but The One is above all!
We gain to give! When we gain with pure heart and motive, we poise ourselves to give more! The more we give, the more we receive, the more we receive, the more we have to give!
Thank You Lord for blessing us with not having the burden to know it all. We leave that to You. Thank You for the blessings found through the body of Christ.
Lord we lift Sheridan County up to You! We pray with, for, and through them today. Thank You for the churches in this community that are sharing Your Good News. May they continue to be successful in that. We thank You for the abundant resources in this county. We thank You for the hard working people that fill this county. May Your blessings continue to shower upon them.
We pray with the people of Real Life Church in Sheridan. We pray for the 16,535 people who have yet to connect into a gospel church in this county. May You Lord, expand, elevate and reinforce the credibility of the local church in this county.
The time for growth through education has come. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
