why your prayers matter for your student

Your prayers matter for your student.

In today’s blog post, learn more about how you can pray for your student throughout the year. You will also get a chance to learn more about my friend Julie, the author of The ABCs of Praying for Students. Julie and I both believe that when a parent understands how to apply prayer to academic settings, we are empowered as mothers to do the work as our child’s divine advocate. We know that preparing your child to go back to school is busy—picking out school supplies, meeting their teachers, signing your children up for co-curricular activities—and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all the things to do for your kids. Not to mention all the jitters that everyone has before school begins when it comes to what friends will be in their class, what activities they will get picked for, and how they will get along with their teachers!

Read more in today’s blog post and allow Julie’s words to calm your parent soul.

No, prayer helps us have peace with going back to school. Let us prepare our kids for school with prayer.
