As we focus on the Mountain of Education, we bless our school Superintendents.  We ask You, Lord, to guide each of them and their Boards, enabling them to be the voice of encouragement and wisdom to our principals, teachers, parents and students.  We thank You for their commitment and hard work as they strive to provide a quality education that prepares all children for a successful future.  Cause them to know and believe that Your plans and purposes for our childrens’ futures are the best! (Jer. 29:11)

We bless:

We pray these leaders will listen to Your Words and know according to Prov. 1:2-4 “Their purpose is to teach people wisdom and discipline, to help them understand the insights of the wise.  Their purpose is to teach people to live disciplines and successful lives, to help them do what is right, just and fair.  Their purpose is to give insight to the simple, knowledge and discernment to the young.”  (NLT)
