Deep Love of Learning

The Lord’s wisdom and knowledge imparted to the believing children in our nation can make all the difference in the future of our nation. Children that first fear the Lord, gaining spiritual wisdom and knowledge, then gaining natural knowledge and skill will have an advantage anywhere the Lord decides to place them as He unfolds their destiny. We must think generationally when we think of transitioning this nation from where we are to where the Lord wants us to be. The secular humanists have done this well. Let’s believe for the reversal in our children’s days and pray for a love of learning in our young ones!

“Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her.” (Proverbs 8:10-11; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Pray Proverbs 8:1-21 over all of our school children.

  2. Ask the Lord to pour out a passion for learning on our children. Pray that they would also first desire to know the Lord and gain His wisdom and knowledge.

  3. Pray that our nation’s Christian children would be life-long learners, so that they might be used by God to impact every realm of society.

A prayer you can pray:

“We pray for every student in our public, private, and home schools and we ask that You would pour out a love of learning and a hunger for knowledge and ignite their drive for academic success. Give them a deep desire to seek godly wisdom and its blessings. We ask that our students would treasure learning above silver or gold, as Your Word says; let them value their education and be so motivated that they would let nothing stand in their way of graduating! May they be lifelong learners who excel in their respective fields. We pray our classrooms would come alive with an excitement for learning, and that apathy, disinterest, discouragement, and all disruptions be removed, in Jesus’ name. Amen.”1

Today’s decree:

Christian children will be well educated and thrust by the King into high realms of authority and influence in our nation!
