Oh Lord, help me to grow up in You. I want to hear Your voice and I want You to use my life to bring others to You! Teach me to take my prayers as seriously as You do and help me to remember that the power of life and death is in my tongue. Lord, as Your disciples asked You, I now ask You, teach me how to pray.
In addition I ask You, Lord God, to protect all students, staff and parents who will be traveling to and from extra-curricular events today. I ask You to keep them healthy and from injury as they participate in these events. May they glorify You in all they do. Refresh me, my co-workers and each student over the weekend. Protect the teenagers from themselves and keep them from evil. I pray a hedge of protection around them and give them wisdom in their dealings with other teenagers. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
