School Supplies

It’s that time of year when the store shelves are stocked with crayons, pencils, markers, paper, and all the other necessary school supplies. As parents, we want to make sure our children and youth have everything they need to be ready for their first days back in the classroom.

One of the best ways to make sure your children survive and thrive in school is to pray for them every day. As you send them off, lift them up to the Heavenly Father, who will go with them throughout their day. He will make sure that they have all the “school supplies” they need by caring for them physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

“For your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule generation after generation.” (Psalm 145:13, NLT)
