Prayer Protection Over Our Students
When most of us were growing up, schools were a very safe environment for our little ones. Rarely did we have concerns about violence, except an occasional scuffle on the playground. Now, sadly, bullying has a new face – cyberbullying has led to children giving up. Also, terrorism has become a very real threat to our children from elementary school through college. We must not fear, but we must call on the Lord to protect them and their campuses.
“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” (Psalm 91: 1-2; NIV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Pray Psalm 91 over the school(s) your child(ren) attend or your local schools. If you are a home-school family, pray this over your home.
God did not turn over the airways to the enemy. Decree that God is Lord over the airways and cyberspace belongs to the Lord. Spiritually cut off cyberbullying to the students in your school(s).
Bind a spirit of death and terror over the schools. Seal off the entry ways. Cancel any plans of the enemy to cause harm.
Go to your schools and ask the principal or Secretary if you can walk the building and pray for the safety of the children. Walk in authority, but pray with discretion, so you will be welcomed back!
A prayer you can pray:
“For those shamed, threatened, and victimized by bullies or cyberbullies and living in fear, we speak Your peace, courage and protection over them and we break the power of intimidation and shame! For every student and teacher plagued by suicidal or homicidal thoughts, we bind the spirit of death and break its hold over our young people in Jesus’ name! We cancel all plans of the enemy to bring terror attacks, school shootings, bombings, knifings, or any other kind of violence.”1
I decree that these schools (name them) are safe under the shadow of the wings of the Most High God—safe and secure!
