it's not too late...

"Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful." Colossians 4:2

If you missed the opportunity to pray with others around a school flagpole this morning, remember it's never too late to pray. Just stop right now and pray for your school, it's entire leadership, faculty and staff, all the students and parents. Your prayer will join the thousands of others and strengthen our request to God for favor, guidance, blessings, and protection for our children. Obedience to our Father has a sweet sound to it... it's called peace.

By the way, you have already been prayed for today. Go about your business with the confidence God is with you and for you.

you are loved and chosen by God,
and prayers for by many,

Reminder:  SYATP is tomorrow, Wednesday, September  28 (7am most schools)

For the last 25 years, See You at the Pole has been about one simple act—prayer, students uniting themselves in prayer before God interceding for their generation.  All around the globe, students will be gathering at their flagpoles, praying for their school, friends, families, churches, and communities. I look forward to praying with you there.

healing needed

"And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. " Micah 6:8

How are you doing?

If recent events have disturbed you, causing grief and pain, you are not alone.  When the world appears hopeless, i am thankful to discover i am wrong.  I need only to walk the halls at school and find reminders there is hope.

 

From the smallest fisherman in the vast sea of life, i am encouraged.  God's still in control and leading us. He sends us countless messages and urgings daily on how to live and treat each other. We need only follow Him and be obedient for His Peace.

who do you work for?

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord..." Colossians 3:23

I figured she was helping one of her grand kids before school started, but i was wrong.  Instead it was a young student, who had been upset and experiencing separation anxiety.  Removing the student from chaos in the cafeteria and reading to her in a gentle voice, the child settled down, calm and prepared for her day at school.

This task isn't part of Ms. S's written job description at school, but it's one written on her heart by our Father. And it's one i see over and over again, by caring school team members.

This is where the greatest rewards are reaped...
And God smiles from ear to ear.

you owe me...

"Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law." Romans 13:8


It's the one debt we gladly owe to others, and happily receive.
