Lift up the Richardsons and other home schooling missionaries who see the importance of bringing the redeeming power of the gospel to families through the discipleship model of home schooling. More...

Pray for our nation's leaders—especially those newly elected and those who are involved in home schooling—that they would “hate evil and cling to what is good” (Romans 12:9). Ask the Lord to turn the hearts of our rulers and our people toward His truth and mercy.

Praise God for rewarding home schoolers’ efforts to obtain a permanent ban on national testing. And thank Him for blessing endeavors to end discrimination against home schoolers in higher education and in U.S. military forces.

Pray for state leaders and home school lobbyists gearing up for state legislative sessions. More...

Uphold our ongoing cases: Dorcas Hill (TX), Garza (TX), Ortiz (TX), and Lorenzo M. (OK). More...

Pray for South Dakota officials who recently refused to approve any new home school applications and pray for the families in the Hamlin School District. More...

Praise God for protecting dads who face persecution for their choice to home school. More...

Ask the Lord to change the heart of Udall, Kansas, school official Grady Sewell, who has been referring every home schooling family he knows of to the local prosecutor. More...

Lift up home schoolers fighting proposed curfews in Idaho and Wisconsin, and for the Harrahill case which challenges a Monrovia, California daytime curfew.

Lift up Arkansas home schoolers and legislators as they prepare for an attack against favorable provisions of the 1997 home school law. More...

Praise God for protecting a Maryland family threatened by a social worker after their toddler burned himself in a hot water accident. Lift up other families involved in social worker contacts—Michigan, Florida and Nebraska.

Lift up South Carolina home schoolers who are opposing state department of health & environmental control efforts to make home schools report the immunization status of their students. More...

Ask the Lord to bring repentance and healing to families struggling with rebellious young people or irresponsible spouses.

Pray that the Lord will direct, strengthen and encourage the hearts of both new and seasoned home school parents as they seek His will for their families.

Pray that home schooling seminars and conferences across the country will bless participants and the movement at large.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4: 6-7
