Enter his gates with thanks-giving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.

Psalm 100:4 (NIV)

Thank the Lord for blessing home schoolers’ efforts to stand for family and freedom at HSLDA’s Proclaim Liberty Rally and Conference. Praise Him for the speakers’ encouraging messages and the positive national media coverage. More...

Lift up our active cases: Forstrom (NJ), In re Heather B (KS), In re T.M. (VT), Mr. & Mrs. S. (VA), Mrs. S. (WV), Stumbo (NC), and Taylor (CA). And our pending cases: Cutchin (SD), Harrahill (CA), Hooks (NV), Nabholz (SD), and New (DC). More...

Pray that God will enable Hawaii home schoolers to make wise and gracious appeals during public hearings on proposed changes to the administrative rules governing home schooling. And, pray that officials will respond positively to those appeals. More...

Thank the Lord for defeat of a New Hampshire bill that would have been the first step in submitting home schoolers to curriculum control. More...

Pray for HSLDA and Education Network of Christian Homeschoolers of New Jersey as they work with the state department of education to revise advice given to local school districts. More...

Praise God for blessing home schoolers’ efforts to persuade New Mexico’s superintendent of public instruction not to expand testing requirements for home schoolers. And pray that efforts to eliminate the testing regulations would be successful. More...

Pray for efforts to pass Religious Freedom Acts in state legislatures around the country. Continue to uphold National Center for Home Education staff as they track federal issues affecting home school families and for state leaders as they prepare for new state legislative sessions. More...

Thank the Lord for the resolution of many conflicts with school districts or other agencies that overstepped the bounds of the law in what they ask from home schooling parents.

Lift up fellow home schoolers in Ireland facing tightened regulations. More...

Pray for those facing difficulties in family relationships: rebellious young people or spouses, hostile grandparents, or skeptical in-laws.

Ask the Lord to guide and strengthen brand new home school parents. Pray that He will refresh veterans and renew their vision. Pray that their children will obey cheerfully and willingly.

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

Lift up families faithfully pressing on amidst difficult challenges—limited funds, pressure from extended family members, ongoing medical problems, or death of a spouse or child.

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
