back to school prayer points

Here are back to school prayer points you can use to pray for teachers and students upon resumption.

If there was ever anytime to seriously pray for our schools, it is now.

The shootings, killings, kidnapping that our children and teachers have experienced in the past few years is alarming, so much that it requires a call for spiritual state of emergency.

The devil is all out to kill our children and their teachers, robbing them of life, value and future.

We cannot continue to keep quiet and just watch.


We call and declare a spiritual state of emergency on our schools.

We have to pray to secure God’s intervention in the matter, ask for His protection going forward so we can help protect and secure the future of our children and education.

Are you ready to pray?

Don’t wait until you lad or teacher-relative is killed in broad day light by a maniac – demon possessed individual (who just walks in to a school, hold student and teachers hostage, shoot and kill them) before you start to pray.

Let us pray today to prevent it tomorrow.
