The start of a new school year is an exciting time in your sponsored child’s life! While many students in the U.S. start school in the fall, some students in other countries, like Honduras and Brazil, go to school from February to November.
Whenever your sponsored child might start school, it’s a time of year that brings a lot of joy. A new school year is an important milestone that is made possible by your faithfulness and encouragement. It’s also an important time to pray for your sponsored child and their education. Here are five ways you can pray as your sponsored child begins a new school year:
1. Start with gratitude
Thank God for the way he created your sponsored child with unique interests, talents and passions. Praise him that your sponsored child gets to explore and learn about these interests in school. Thank him for the resources and teachers that help your sponsored child to learn and grow.
2. Pray for health and safety
Pray that your sponsored child stays healthy and strong throughout the school year so that they can learn each day. Ask God to look over the health and safety of your sponsored child’s teachers and classmates, too.
