We must stop the violence at schools around the country. My heart is broken for the family that lost their daughter  Danyna Gibson  this week to a senseless killing by stabbing at the hands of a fellow student in the class room at a Warren, Michigan high school while other students stood shocked. The teens had once been friends,  were A students, but one became angry  and jealous and decided to take a butcher knife to school to kill Danyna over a boy. Lord have mercy!. Stop the Violence at School Lord!

Pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord. Lift up your hands to him for the lives of your children” (Lam. 2:19)

Cry out to the Lord-Stop the Violence Lord, hear our cry!. We need to consistently pray united back to school prayers for the protection of our children, parents, teachers, the school board and the entire school system. PROJECT PASS-Praying Always for Students and Schools want to partner with you so we can unite in praying for our children, teen and young adults. Through prayer, families, our children’s lives, and our world can be changed. God will show us how to use the power that believers have within through the power of the Holy Spirit to transform our schools and deliver them from violence, disorganization, and poor administration.

Through united consistent prayer, God will give us the power, wisdom, knowledge, and creativity to solve the many school problems that plague our city schools and school board. Through prayer the right leaders will arise to enable the community to come together to take productive and strategic action to transform our educational system and our schools.

Here is a short prayer for protection. If you read Day 1-5 prayers we prayed for the protection of children. Review that prayer too.

Prayer of Protection

Lord in the name of Jesus be a very present help to my son/ daughter__________________ (state their name) as he/she goes out to play, goes to school, walks on the school ground and sits in the classroom , attends college and faces the challenges and responsibilities in our society.

Lord build a hedge of protection all around the school building, playground, bathrooms, classroom and hide them under the protection of your wings as in Psalm 91 in the name of Jesus.

Lord in the name of Jesus we pray that you cover my children and the children and youth around the world through the blood and “stay the hand of violence against the children and staff of the school. Dismantle any plan to bring harm to them. Expose any weapon brought on the school premises and render it harmless”

Keep our home safe from all fear and dispatch your angles to protect my children at school, on campus, on the playground, on the bus and walking home from school. In the name of Jesus!
