Well, for those of you here in my area…  This was the BIG day for you guys!  It is a very exciting and scary thing all together…  new school, new teacher, new friends, new adventures and new ups & downs!  A friend of mine warned us of the enemy, lurking behind the door.   Don’t be naive.  The Bible says that the enemy is out to KILL, STEAL & DESTROY!  A little harsh ~ nahhhh.  Just the truth!   From emails, phone calls and Facebook post, moms, dads, grandparents, friends all over are sending up prayers for our children.  HIS children!  I am praying that each of our children will be confronted by a smile that can only come from Jesus.  I pray that each of our children will be safe and have amazingly great adventures in learning over this next school year.  Praying for teachers, staff that have dedicated their lives to helping us raise these precious gifts from God. 

Below are scriptures for you to pray over your children each day for the first 31 days of school.  {of course, don’t stop there}  These will just get you going!  I think they are just great, HOPE you enjoy them too!
