Morning by Morning, August 24 - Seeking Wisdom and Understanding
Good morning, Lord Jesus. I speak out Your name and listen in for Your voice, asking You to lead me through the moments of my day.  ...
"Happy are those who find wisdom, and those who get understanding, for her income is better than silver, and her revenue better than gold. She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her; those who hold her fast are called happy" (Proverbs 3:13-18).
Today is the first day of school for one my younger sons, Elijah, going off to the eighth grade at Dr. Hector P. Garcia Middle School, here in San Antonio. I pray for him and for all his teachers, I pray for the students and all their teachers in all the places where our children go to learn, whether in public schools, private schools, or home schools. May they hold fast the words of truth You've already spoken and sealed into their spirits, yet hungry and eager to learn and grow "in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and all the people" (Luke 2:52 NLT).
May they feel safe and secure, confident in who You have created them to be. May they seek Your discernment to filter all things through Your Word and by Your Spirit to embrace what is true and set aside what is not. May they connect and bond with Godly friends who will encourage them and enjoy the journey of education with them. May they focus and excel, steadfast in their faith and growing in grace, changing the very spiritual atmosphere of their schools as the carry the Spirit of Christ with them everywhere they go, empowered by Your Spirit to "do everything for the glory of God" (1 Corinthians 10:31).
As parents and teachers, may we have Your wisdom and grace to "train (our) children in the right way, and (believe Your promise that) when (they grow) old, they will not stray" (Proverbs 22:6). Help us listen to their questions, help them with Your answers, and encourage them as You teach them and equip them with wisdom and understanding through those You have chosen to influence and inspire their lives. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays

I join in prayer with you for all our children and their teachers as we entrust them to God and the place of education where He has strategically positioned them for all His purposes in them and through them, in Jesus' name. Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
