Pray that many home schoolers will recognize the dangers of and avoid charter schools and other public school-sponsored home education programs. (See Cover Story)

Intercede for America as our nation continues to deal with the results of the September 11 terrorist attacks and wages war against terrorist sponsors. Lift up our president and his cabinet. Pray for Congress and our military forces. Uphold our allies in this battle. Pray for repentant hearts, that many would turn to the Lord in these difficult times.

Ask the Lord to bless National Center for Home Education staff as they keep a watchful eye on federal issues and lobby for important home school protections. (See Freedom Watch)

Thank the Lord for protecting home schooling families who faced truancy contacts, social workers, or hostile school officials in recent weeks. (See Across the States)

Pray for our active and pending cases. (See Active Cases)

Uphold those who are home schooling in the face of tremendous difficulties. Ask the Lord to bless the Home School Foundation's efforts to help these families through the Widows Curriculum Scholarship Fund, Special Needs Children's Fund, and Members Helping Members Fund.

Lift up home schooling parents who may have lost their jobs or face significantly reduced income following the September 11 attacks. Ask the Lord to supply all their needs.

Pray for families who are facing opposition to home schooling from close friends or extended family members. Pray for strength, wisdom, and protection as they persevere in trying to provide the best education possible for each of their children.

Lift up Patrick Henry College students as they return from Christmas break and jump into a new semester. Ask the Lord to bless the college community and provide funds for additional dormitory and classroom space.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

- Jeremiah 29:11 (NKJ)
