DAY 5 – Prayers for Academics & Career

Before we kick off today’s prayer, let’s lift up the families mourning at this time.

Lord we pray for everyone who needs your embrace at this difficult time. Especially moms who are crying over their children that have passed on. We pray for them that they are embraced in the comfort of your Holy Spirit. Oh Lord, be with them, comfort their hearts, give them reasons to draw even closer to you at this time. Lord there will be questions. We pray your presence overwhelms them. It is in Jesus Name we pray. Amen!

At some point in life, our children will begin their educational journey. Some will end up in business, some will end up in the coporate world. Some also may go into ministry doing the work of the Lord fulltime.

As moms, I am sure we already have like a desire somewhat regarding what we want our children to be. I believe that one of them which we can all agree on is that, we want them to be excellent, prosperous and successful.

We know of Joseph, Solomon, Daniel, the Hebrew boys and even our Lord Jesus. They were a force to be reckoned with when it came to knowledge, wisdom and understanding. So today we will praying for our children’s education.
