In a School Zone? – PRAY

"Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality." Romans 12:10-13 (NKJV)

There are two school zones in my neighborhood and soon to be a fire station too.   When I read Romans 12:10 I thought about what a special speaker at our church exhorted us to do concerning school zones.  He encouraged us to pray as we go through them.  Look at it as a blessing of time God has ordained for you to talk to Him!  Pray that the influence of Christ would be evident in the school and the kids who are followers of Christ would have boldness to share their faith.  Whether we bring our kids to school at Public, Private, Charter… or Homeschool we all have a wonderful commission or obligation to pray and be effective for the generations around us!

Turn that school-zone into a Prayer-zone!  YEAH!!!

  1. Great encouragement and what a great idea. So often we can get frustrated at having to SLOW down in school zones. This idea gives us an opportunity to allow those "patience-growing" moments to talk to the Lord and pray for students too ...instead of the alternative which most of us have done plenty a time :) Great blog!
