Good morning, Lord!
I’m SUPER excited that the kids start school today! WOOHOO!
But you know them and love them even more than I do, so you already know that they really don’t want to say goodbye to summer.
I get it. They were staying up late, playing on their tablets WAY too much and really having a lot of fun!
Please help Daddy (you know, Adam, my husband) and me be the best parents we can be, so the school year can be a healthy balance of fun and learning.
Please give us wisdom (and time-management skills) to make healthy breakfasts & pack healthy lunches (with the occasional Chick-fil-A thrown in.)
Please let them have an EPIC first day back where they’ll run into friends who will help them feel at home … or make new friends and feel like it’s going to be a great year.
Please bless their teachers with everything they need (read: patience & coffee) as they get everyone settled into a new routine.
And please send EXTRA angels to protect them wherever they go.
Oh, and let them be shining lights for YOU, so they can help make their school a better place.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Thanks for e-mailing God (aka praying) with me! 😉
P.S. Post in the comments your prayer requests for this new school year! I’d love to join you in prayer for your kids, too!
