A Student’s Prayer for a New School Year

A Student’s Prayer for a New School Year

Lord Jesus, I ask for Your help as I begin this new school year.

Allow me to experience Your presence in the many blessings You put before me.

Open my eyes to the new challenges and exciting opportunities that this new school year brings.

Open my heart and mind to new friends and new teachers.

Give me a generous spirit to be enthusiastic with my studies and courage to accept new opportunities.

Help me to be attentive to my teachers and let me experience Your presence in my new friends.

Jesus, inspire me to do my best this year! Amen

You can’t change the past, but you’ll ruin the present by worrying about the future.

If you have a tendency to despair over lost opportunities or if you worry about the future, ask yourself this question: “What is right in front of me?” In other words, what circumstances and relationships are currently available to you? This question can get your focus off a past regret or a scary future and back to what God can do in your life.

It’s similar to the question God asked Moses at the burning bush. Moses was troubled. Aware of his own weaknesses, he expressed fear about the Lord’s call for him to lead Israel out of bondage. So God simply asked Moses, “What is that in your hand?” (Ex. 4:2). The Lord shifted Moses’ attention away from his anxiety about the future and suggested he notice what was right in front of him—a shepherd’s rod. God showed Moses that He could use this ordinary staff to perform miracles as a sign for unbelieving people. As Moses’ trust in God grew, so did the magnitude of miracles God worked through His servant.

Do you think about past failures too much? Do you have fearful thoughts about the future? Recall God’s question: “What is that in your hand?” What current circumstances and relationships can God use for your benefit and His glory? Entrust them—and your life—to Him.

Onward and upward your course plan today,
Seeking new heights as you walk Jesus’ way;
Heed not past failures, but strive for the prize,
Aiming for goals fit for His holy eyes. —Brandt

You can’t change the past,
but you’ll ruin the present by worrying about the future.

From the Pastor

The worst disappointment is disappointment in yourself. That is the reason we blame everything on someone or something else. If we acknowledge it is our own fault we must be the one to address it.

But sometimes you are placed in a corner with no-one else to blame. It is at these times we hurt the most, withdraw the farthest, and struggle the hardest.

It can destroy you if you let it, but it can also rebuild you if you let it.

It can be the most life changing experience of your life when you deal with self disappointment in a healthy manner.

Evaluate, change your actions, and overcome that which is staring you in the face…

In other words, self disappointment will always lead to repentance.

Word from the Youth Pastor

“If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.”
‭‭James‬ ‭2:15-17‬ ‭KJV‬‬

It’s not enough to know what is required in order to have faith

We must put it to work
We must act upon it
