Prayer

A guide to prayer for homeschool parents and their children.

Prayer for Your Children

Mother and daughter looking at a laptop screen

Several years ago, God burdened my heart that I was not praying His Word over my children like I should, so I started putting together what would become a very helpful prayer guide for myself and my family.

And I would like to share it with you!  Click below to learn more about the “Pray for Your Children” series and downloadable.

Prayer for Your Family

As a Christian homeschool parent, saying a prayer for your children prior to starting the day’s lesson is a great way to get centered and focused on God’s word and will for the day. There are also several homeschool prayer guides to get you started.

Prayer is one of the most valuable tools that God give us. When we draw near to God through prayer for our marriage, for our family, and for our children, we strengthen our relationship with Him.

 

Prayer for Peace

All moms and dads yearn for a peaceful home. When you are a homeschool parent, you can sometimes lose focus.

Making sure to carve out time for prayer daily is essential to staying the course. Pray for peace, guidance, and understanding for the day’s lessons and activities.

Prayer for Strength & Peace

Homeschool isn’t always easy. Homeschool parents have bad days just like everyone else. Sometimes the kids don’t listen or maybe they are having a hard time learning a concept. It can be frustrating at times.

Prayers for strength and wisdom will help get through these rough patches and get refocused.

Hebrews 11: 23 and 2 Kings 3:16. The secret of our Homeschooling “Why” and “How”

The “secret” to success in Homeschooling is there’s no secret! The elements of success in Homeschooling match those in discipleship, marriage, parenting, entrepreneurship and gardening.

My husband introduced me to gardening in 1981. I was ready to wean our 13-month old twins to baby food. He argued for a garden because “we don’t know who’s bottling that!” When I balked he said “Sweetie Pie, gardening is like pastoring and parenting. All require daily attention to detail in the same posture of humility, ‘head bowed, body bent.’ Folks who don’t have time to garden probably don’t have time to parent.” I joined him in the garden and learned the “secret” works in discipleship, marriage, parenting, entrepreneurship, gardening, and of course homeschooling. It isn’t easy but it’s also not complex. Homeschooling three sons to a state of holistic health required a challenging yet simple Morning by Morning approach. I’d love to share our “Why” and “How” Homeschooling “secrets” with you.

Homeschooling and Living out the Gospel

Intentionally living out Godliness through the living Gospel everyday should be my goal as a mama, wife, teacher, and friend. When life gets crazy, where do we turn? Or who do we turn into? The learning my children receive not only comes from books, but more importantly, it comes from a life wholly dedicated to God. A life that LIVES OUT THE GOSPEL.

We will learn how to respond biblically to temptation through the put off/put on process and also learn what it means to radically amputate sin from our lives.

He is No Fool – Learning from Jim Elliot

God Blessed America: Our Christian Roots

America is a nation based on the Law of Moses, given by God to His prophet at the foot of Mt. Sinai thousands of years ago. As a faithful Christian nation following those ancient principles, America has been wise, good and prosperous. To remain such, we must reinforce and restore our Christian principles. Our colonial pastors and Founders openly taught Christianity, extolling the benefits of freedom that would result from living by God’s Word.

Humanism, the sworn enemy of liberty and Christianity, seeks to destroy our national Judeo-Christian heritage. We must understand and defend ourselves from this desolating plague; but how? Join us to learn Christianity’s essential contributions in the home and nation that preserve America’s greatness.
