Colossians 3:17 (NIV)

Thank the Lord for godly home school mothers and all they do for their families. Ask Him to bless their loving, sacrificial service. More...

Lift up our active cases: In re C.W. (CO), In re R.M. (KS), Goulart & Travers (MD), In re Family of C (ME), In re Shanovia Brown (NY), Family of P (TX), Family of F (TX), Balderson (VA), and Mrs. S. (WV). More...

Lift up home school seminars and conferences being held across the country. More...

Pray for National Center for Home Education staff as they keep a close eye on federal issues. More...

Thank the Lord for protecting home schooling families in conflicts with school districts or other agencies. More...

Thank the Lord for laying a burden on a home school father’s heart to start a curriculum scholarship fund for widows (this page). Ask the Lord to comfort and provide for home school parents who have lost either a beloved spouse or child this year. More...

Praise God for a new Texas Commissioner of Education’s memorandum discouraging education officials from using social workers to investigate cases of suspected truancy. More...

Praise Him that the West Virginia governor signed a home school breakthrough in that state—a one-year lifting of the rule that a home school instructor must have four years more education than his oldest student. More...

Thank the Lord for legislative victories in California, Kentucky, and Rhode Island. Pray for ongoing legislative battles in New York.

Praise God for progress in rewriting bad New Jersey State Department of Education home school “guidelines.” More...

Pray for families battling anti-truancy ordinances that violate constitutional rights and unfairly crack down on home school children’s freedom.; More...

Thank the Lord for good home school laws in Arizona and Idaho.

Intercede for home school parents who are persevering through hard times. Ask the Lord to strengthen marriages, provide for needs, and grant wisdom and grace for each day.

Pray that Patrick Henry College’s initial dormitories will be completed in time for a September class start. More...

Pray that plans and state approval will move quickly for PHC to begin its new Classical Liberal Arts major. More...

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
