The increase in school shooting incidents is nothing short of a spiritual battle. This has left many parents, teachers, and students feeling vulnerable.
At House of Hope, we believe in the power of prayer. It is through prayer that we find the feeling of hope and empowerment God intended for us to enjoy.
As parents, you don’t have to feel powerless. If your child attends a local school, you can begin encircling the school with Psalm 91 protection through your prayers. If you do not have children in school, your prayers are still needed! You can pray for any school in prayer for protection against violence.
You can pray during carpool, from your home, or even prayer walk the school. No matter how you pray, know this: your prayer will make a difference.
To get you started, here is a prayer of protection against school shootings you can pray with faith.
Father, in the Name of Jesus, I thank You for my children and I praise You for the gift of education. I thank You that our children have the privilege and right to develop their minds and to do so safely.
Lord, I know it is NEVER Your will that bullying, violence or shootings take place in a school or anywhere else. I recognize and acknowledge that these things are the work of evil and that You have called us to stand against wickedness through our words, actions and prayers.
I thank You that in Psalm 91 and so many other places in Your Word, there is a promise of divine protection for my children, and based on Your Word, I declare that no evil will come near my children or their schools in the Name of Jesus. I declare that no weapon formed against any school in my city will prosper. I pray that every plan for evil plan will be brought into the light and halted.
I thank You that Your angels surround my children, taking charge over them and protecting them from danger of any kind.
I speak life, truth, safety and protection over every child at this school. I declare that no evil will come near them.
I thank You, Father, that You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of POWER. Therefore, I will not fear, but take comfort in Your truth and Your promises.
Thank You for Your goodness, mercy, and grace.
In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
