Shaping Fort Worth’s Educational Landscape Through Prayer.

Today marks the last Wednesday for educators, parents, and students across Fort Worth as we prepare for a new school year ahead of us.

There’s palpable excitement and anticipation in the air.

It’s a divine time of fresh beginnings, new possibilities, and a chance to sow the seeds of knowledge and growth in the hearts and minds of students, parents, and educators alike.

As we witnessed through God’s answering our prayers for Fort Worth academia, prayer can shape an academic year. We believe our prayers to God to uplift those who guide our schools and to inspire the hearts of students, teachers, parents, and the entire educational community.

Beyond praying for God’s grace, peace, favor, safety, and protection in His will being done, we aim our hearts to fervently pray David’s words of Psalms 112 over ourselves, our homes, and our city and its educational institutions.

Allow these words to seed our hearts as a beautiful expression of God’s blessings upon those who fear Him, delight in His presence, and find life in living according to His Word. 

And as we pray as led by the Holy Spirit, let’s believe for Jesus to be tangible in the lives of those shaping our educational landscape:
