Prayer & Praise


Ask the Lord to grant victory in the Newborn and Hankin cases, to firmly establish a religious exemption for Pennsylvania homeschoolers, and to reduce the state's stringent reporting requirements. Pray that the Newborns' and Hankins' courage and commitment would remain unwavering in the midst of legal battles. (See cover story)

Praise God for protecting homeschooling in the Czech Republic against the recent legislative threat. Ask him to continue strengthening homeschool freedom in that country and to pour a concern for international homeschooling into the hearts of families in countries where the right to homeschool is more firmly rooted. (See Around the Globe)

Pray that through its new online civics curriculum, Generation Joshua would be able to train a new generation of leaders to become clear thinkers and communicators. (See Freedom Watch)

Seek God's blessing on the Home School Foundation's vision to link homeschoolers in need with families who desire to serve them (page 12).

Uphold HSLDA's litigation department as they work on our active and pending cases.

Thank the Lord for providing scholarships for Patrick Henry College students through state organizations. Pray that God would increase the students' faith through his provision. (See About Campus)

Intercede on behalf of homeschoolers across the nation as they fight restrictive legislation, battle intrusive social workers, and demonstrate the benefits of home education to their relatives and neighbors (Across the states).

Lift up HSLDA members who are feeling frustration or heartbreak over rebellious children, broken marriages, and hostile relatives.

The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands.

— Deuteronomy 28:12 (NIV)
