Our dear Heavenly Father, Father of all mercies and love, we come to you in the Worthy name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
I pray for the safety of the teachers and the students. I remember pastor Victor and his family and their faithfulness in serving the students and their families. Please, Lord, erect a hedge of protection around every student, teacher, and person who serves you at Grace Charity School.
We thank you that by studying science, all the students can learn more about the wonderful world that you have made. And that by studying health and hygiene the students can learn how to take care of their bodies, because our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit.
Thank you that the students can learn how to use computers and other equipment that is necessary to be successful in the modern world.
Thank you, dear Lord, that they are learning their language, Urdu, as well as English.
Thank you that the students are learning the Bible and how the Bible teaches us how to live with wisdom, and with respect for all people.
We also pray for all the people of Pakistan. Grant to them understanding and a willing heart to know you and your great love for all humanity.
There is so much suffering and tragedy in the world. We know that man’s way is the way of war, but your way is the way of peace and joy.
Dear Lord, there is much fear in many hearts. Please replace that fear with confidence and trust in you.
And I know that there is much anger and misunderstanding in many hearts as well. Please replace that with joy, and with a willingness to listen to others and to be friends and not enemies.
Dear Lord, we know that you are the true and living God and that you have given us your Word to guide us and lead us.
In the Gospel of John, chapter 3 you reveal to the world much about your love–
For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil.
Our Father in Heaven, we thank you for touching the hearts of many people in America who have helped to fund and support Grace Charity School. Many in America believe that education is the answer to many of our problems.
We all want the students of Grace Charity School to be a great blessing to Pakistan. May the students grow in skill so that they can become doctors and nurses, teachers, and scientists.
In Jesus’ wonderful Name we pray,
