For families who are preparing to home school for the first time this fall, pray that the parents will prepare thoroughly and faithfully continue to educate their children, and that the children will honor their parents with their obedience and bless them with their cheerful willingness.

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

Ask the Lord to protect and provide for families struggling to continue home schooling amidst difficult challenges—tight finances, opposition from extended family members, serious illness, or death of a loved one.

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
