Prayers for Our City: May 23, 2016
“Let’s have a feast and celebrate.” Luke 15:23b
How pleased You are, Father, when we reach important goals and family and friends take time to celebrate and honor accomplishment. Lord, we want to cover every commencement and graduation celebration with Your love and joy. As our High School Seniors don their cap and gown, we ask that You clothe them with hope, confidence and favor to meet the challenges of the next season of their lives. (Madison County schools graduating on May 24th and 25th. Huntsville City schools graduating on May 26th and 27th.) For those high schoolers and our college friends that have already received their diplomas, we bless them as well with Your guidance that will direct them into the destiny and purposes for their lives. [Pray by name for every graduate you know! ] Thank You for each teacher, administrator and school staff that poured time, energy and love into our students.
As a community, we pray over our graduates (from kindergarten level to college) and celebrate Your Hand of blessing on each life. We thank You for every music/dance recital and for every school program highlighting the advancements our students have made. We welcome You as the guest of honor at every service and celebration, for Your Presence brings miracles!
“And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.” Mark 10:16
