Parents that Pray

Posted on September 25, 2020

Dear Parents,

I prayed today for you and your children that the joy of the Lord would be your strength.  May that joy continue through the weekend and beyond!

Prayer is such an interesting topic and can be so intimate between you and God.  I cannot say I have always been a consistent “pray-er”.  However, when my children were young, I certainly became one.  Because I have repeatedly seen the fruit of my prayers, I want to encourage you to do the same for your own children.  Since many of you are already praying, I encourage you to continue and not give up.  You will see the fruit, if not immediately, over the years to come.

I love to use God’s word as the basis of my prayers and a great way to begin.   Following are 3 prayers you can pray for your children. Whether you are a beginner or a veteran at this, I pray these examples will be a help to you. 

  • “Jesus, please let my child know he/she is SO special to You and to me.  I praise you because he/she is fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Help me, Jesus, to be able to express your love to my child every day and instilling in them a knowledge of how very special he/she is to you.”  Psalms 139:14
  • “Jesus, I know you tell us not to be afraid.  Please help my child know you are with them all day, every day.  Let them know when they call out to you when they feel afraid, you are with them, will strengthen them and help them.” When my children were between 6-8 years old, I had them memorize this verse: “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
  • “Jesus, You have said You give wisdom and from Your mouth come knowledge and understanding. Please give me the wisdom to train up my child in the way he/she should go and give them wisdom they need to live a life after Your own heart. Jesus, they need wisdom in a decision (name it) they are making right now; I know You will give it to them as they seek You for answers. Teach them what is best for them as You direct them in the way they should go.”  Proverbs 2:6, Isaiah 48:17, Acts 13:22, Proverbs 22:6

Have a blessed weekend! 


Joy and Safety!

Posted on September 17, 2020

Dear Parents,

“This is the day the Lord has made! I will rejoice and be glad in it!” I just love the words to this song and used to sing it every morning with the four-year olds I had the privilege of teaching many years ago. My prayer is the joy of the Lord is yours today and every day!

As we are settling in to the end of our second week together, I want to take the time to talk a little about some of our health and safety procedures and precautions. As we are moving closer to our opportunity of being in our new permanent classrooms, the installation of electrical and plumbing and other construction is evident each day around our building. With that being said, I want to let you know the following procedures are being followed:

  • All staff, parents, church staff and construction workers check in/out of the building and their temperatures are checked.
  • Construction workers are given a dated neon paper bracelet to wear on their wrists; a different color for each day of the week.
  • I.D. is checked by the receptionist when a child is picked up if he/she does not already recognize the person from previous days.
  • All persons picking up need to take their temperature, use hand sanitizer, and wash their hands in the classroom.
  • The front doors are to remain locked with the exception of the single door on the left as you are facing the building. A buzzer sounds when anyone enters/exits the building.

As we like to say around here, “Safety First!”

Have a safe and fun weekend experiencing the “joy, joy, joy, joy down in your heart!”

You are loved,

Karen
