One of the biggest transitions in a child’s life is when they start school. I have just enrolled my oldest in kindergarten and he will start in August. So here is my little prayer for my oldest.
Please be with my sweet child through this big step in his life. Please be with him, and let him know he always has a friend in Jesus, if he isn't in with the popular crowd. Please keep him safe in this crazy world, and always be there to protect him.
I pray that he enjoys school, and soaks in all the knowledge they teach him, and always does his best! I pray he learns his ABC, and how to read stories, Count to 50 and play with new toys.
But most importantly I pray he never loses his faith. I know that when it comes to school, we (Christians) are often times a minority, and it can become so easy to stray from what we believe in. But please Lord, I pray you guide him down the right paths, and help him meet like minded kids.
I pray that I have done my job in teaching my son to stand tall and always remember to put God first, and I hope he feels good enough in his faith to spread the Gospel.
