“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 4:6–7)

A few days ago, my son bounded down the stairs before I left for work, proclaiming, “I am so excited!”

“Why is that?” I asked.

“I get to start Kindergarten,” he proudly proclaimed. Then he marched over to our fridge calendar and showed me how many days until the start of the school year.

My older daughter, on the other hand, isn’t so sure she wants summer to be over. One of her best friends moved over the summer, and she fears school won’t be as fun anymore.

Whatever your situation—starting school, packing a child’s lunch, or slowly sipping pumpkin lattes—chances are you’ve got a lot on your mind. No matter how busy our schedules…let’s not forget a crucial element—prayer.

Will you join us over the next few weeks in a focused time of prayer for students, teachers, and their families?

To keep it simple, we’ll use the acrostic G.O.S.P.E.L:

G — Grace

O — Opportunities

S — Salvation

P — Power

E — Encouragement

L — Love
