For wisdom is a defense, even as money is a defense; but the excellency of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of him who has it.”

(Ecclesiastes 7:12 NHEB)

Pray with me:

Lord, our children are on Your heart today. We repent on behalf of America for allowing great sin to be ushered in. We (the church) were asleep on our watch, and the enemy made great advances in education. The roots of education in America were strong in You. You were honored by our Founding Fathers in every way. They actively sought Your involvement in their lives and in forming a strong future for America. They knew the education of future generations had to be established on Your word if we were to be a nation of wisdom and prosperity. Without You, that is not possible.

Then, satan came in with a different plan. Those who did not know You, Father, rose up and sought to champion a God-less cause. Because believers did not stand against the plan to remove You from public education, our schools are a mess. Our children are being indoctrinated in abominable practices, even calling on demons to “help them be kind and accepting of others!” Your Word is not honored in our schools; they are darkened by humanistic thought and action. Father, forgive us.

We ask You now to light a fire within us. We must shine Your light brightly in this dark place of education, doing everything possible to turn it back to a system that honors You. Regardless of how far our education system has turned from You, we know You can reverse it.

Give us the necessary leaders and strategy to repair this. Bring a revival of such proportions that it generates the necessary willingness and determination to reform this ungodly mess.

Give us breakthrough, Lord. Give us wisdom, influence, and favor for the task ahead. Be glorified in our schools. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that our children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be their peace. (see Isaiah 54:13)
