The ABC’s of Praying for Students devotional

Prayer is the most important tool not on your school supply list. Learning today requires more than ever academically, socially, and emotionally. Students need the informed, insightful prayers of caring adults who support kids of all ages in their learning journey. That includes parents, teachers, grandparents, mentors, foster parents, and friends.

In The ABCs of Praying for Students, a devotion for each letter of the alphabet focuses on a single Bible passage, with a clear illustration of how it connects to what a student needs to know & grow. Practical applications follow, along with ideas for Table Talk starters to use with your learners. 

“The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.” (James 5:16b)

In each devotional, you’ll find five elements: 

  1. A letter of the alphabet connected to a character objective

  2. Scripture to help us learn what God says

  3. Practical insights applying truth to life and learning

  4. A few tips to help you take an action step of response

  5. Table Talk ideas for conversation with your student

The ABCs of Praying for Students releases July 16 but if you pre-order, you will receive these additional tools + resources to help you prepare for going back to school!
