Prayer for our Schools::10/3/16

Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. (Matthew 7:13-15)

O Lord, the ways of this world are enticing and when classmates and teachers challenge what our students are learning from Your Word and worship, it is difficult to remain faithful. Strengthen the faith of our students to remain true to You and Your Word, trusting always in the great sacrifice of Your Son on the cross to forgive them when they fail and lead them through the narrow gate to eternal life; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
