Prayer focus for 12/10/11 - 12/17/11
Schools: Covert Center
Churches: Harvest Baptist, Waterford Oaks, Los Pentecostales
As I was praying for the schools and in particular the children of Waterford Township, I began to sense a strong longing for the Lord to touch the hearts of the kids in the Township. It was very strong and I felt that the Lord wants to give dreams and visions and even special encounters with Him to the kids. But I also felt that the churches would need to be prepared to receive these kids. That they would need to have a strong children's ministry with enough workers and resources to handle extra kids coming. I felt that the Lord would love for the churches to reach out and provide transportation to church for those kids who don't have it and to be ready for them in teaching them the Word of God and helping to prepare them for what God has for them. That the ministry to children is not just babysitting or pacifying them, but actually ministering to them and teaching them. Pray for this to happen!
For the schools: for there to be peace in the classrooms and that the needs of the kids are met. That peace would displace confusion, distraction, frustration and anger. That the hungry, neglected and abused are taken care of.
