Thank the Lord for courageous homeschool parents who stand firm for liberty, like those in our cover story (Cover Story). Ask him to watch over new homeschoolers and to guide HSLDA's efforts in assisting families who face legal difficulties related to beginning the school year.

Praise God for the successful launch of HSLDA Japan. As the new organization takes root, continue to seek the Lord's protection and blessing on Japanese homeschool families and support groups. (Around the Globe)

Thank God for guarding homeschool freedom in state legislation, from overzealous school officials, and in overly aggressive social services investigations. (Across the States)

Ask for discernment and success for our litigation team as they defend HSLDA member families in active and pending cases (Active cases).

Intercede on behalf of Patrick Henry College as it embarks on its fifth school year. Pray for the incoming freshmen, returning students, faculty, and staff. (About campus)

Uphold the efforts of HSLDA's Generation Joshua to promote civic education and encourage voter involvement in the upcoming general election. (Freedom Watch)

Lift up the Home School Foundation's Members Helping Members fund. Ask the Lord to provide generous donors and multiply the gifts to assist many recipients. (From the Heart)

Seek the Lord's provision for homeschooling families facing challenging circumstances: military deployment, addition of an elderly relative to the household, relocation for a new job, or discovery of a terminal illness.

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.

— Isaiah 43:19 (NIV)
