Back to school prayer walk

22 Aug

This afternoon, several people from our church met to do a prayer walk around the elementary, middle, and senior high schools that serve our local community. After eating lunch, we divided up into small groups. We then drove to our respective schools. As we walked around the campus,  here are some of the items we prayed for.


  • Good health for students & teachers
  • Safety of playgrounds, sports fields, and street crossings
  • Needy students and families to be identified and given help


  • Teachers have adequate prep-time
  • Students come eager to learn
  • Accurate information presented
  • Students encouraged to become lifelong learners


  • No teasing or bullying
  • Teachers and staff have compassion for student’s worries and problems
  • Respect for others taught and modeled


  • Protection from evil
  • Christian teachers and students allowed to speak of their faith
  • Principals and teachers not be overbearing on religious issues
  • Moms in Touch groups to have an influence for Christ
  • All may come to know the truth of the gospel

Why not take the list and do a prayer walk around your local school? You will be surprised at what God might do.
