Welcome to Knowing Christ!

Welcome to Knowing Christ! My sincere prayer is that God will use what time you spend reading the words shared here to draw you closer to Himself, to speak to you through His word and to mold you and shape you more and more into the image of Christ Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit. There is absolutely nothing special about me but I serve a loving and holy Master who can and will work through all who fully surrender their lives to His control. May you also testify with Paul and myself and countless others that everything else is garbage, filth, dung when compared to the infinite value of KNOWING CHRIST Jesus our Lord.

Your Brother in Christ,

A Christian father’s prayer for the school year

Father tonight I lift up our students to You. I thank You Lord for the gift of education freely given to all children within our community. Father I also thank You for the countless men and women who work hard daily to educate our children. Thank You for the teachers who work directly with our children. Thank You for the custodial staff that work so hard to provide a welcoming environment for our children. Thank You for the safety staff that make sure that our students are safe while at school and I ask Lord that you watch over our students so that these men and women do not need to exercise their training this school year. Thank You Lord for the office staff and the administrators who lead these teams and hold everything together. Please encourage all these men and women and remind them how important their calling is for our families and for our community.

Father I ask for You to please watch over our kids this year. Please grow them relationally, emotionally, physically, academically and spiritually. Please show all students how much You love them through the words and actions of those who know and follow Your Son. Please help these young disciples to show Your love to those around them without exception and without limit. Please remind us and teach us that Your love is free and without limit for all people of every shape, size, color, economic background, language and any and every other type of man-made barrier. Please break down such barriers this school year Lord and draw us all together as one community united through Your Son. Please help our students to be quick to listen and slow to speak. To treat others as they would like to be treated. To be kind for no reason other than to love their neighbors as themselves. Please help them to ask for Your forgiveness and the forgiveness of those around them when they fall short and make mistakes with these things.

Father as parents please remind us to be good stewards of the time that you’ve entrusted these precious kids to us. Remind us that every day is a gift and that although the days sometimes are long the years will be very short. Help us to cherish moments in the present knowing that You will take care of the future.

Above all else Lord I ask that you bring honor and glory to Yourself through the lives of my boys so that others will see not them, but Christ IN THEM and as a result give You praise. I ask all these things in Jesus’ name and for His sake. Amen.
