If you are a Christian, born again, in submission to the Lord Jesus Christ, pray about homeschooling your children. Pray that -- as a father -- God would give you the wisdom to lead your family and train up your children in the admonition of the Lord.
"And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord."
- Ephesians 6:4
Pray that -- as a mother -- God would give you a heart of service to your husband and children. Pray without ceasing that God would give you the wisdom to teach your children as God commanded:
"And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates."
- Deuteronomy 6:5-7
Please pray for the other Christian families you know who are homeschooling or thinking about homeschooling. Meet together with them and pray for each other.
Pray for the Christian families that you know who are sending their children off to be discipled by pagans in government schools, who do not believe Jesus is the Lord of all (including education), and who indulge themselves in the pornography of popular music, television, and explicit movies. Pray that God turns the hearts of these fathers to their children and the children's hearts to their fathers.
Pray for your pastors and church that they, too, may acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord of all, including math, science, and all the other realms given over to the authority of a secular -- and increasingly anti-God -- government.
Pray for the private Biblical homeschool movement, which is being devoured by government charter schools, government controlled "homeschool" programs, and threats of mandatory government controlled universal preschool. Pray that Christians would have discernment and not place themselves under the false authority of these statist programs. Pray that Christians would increasingly join together in the fellowship of the private Biblical homeschooling movement so that we might be able to protect our God given right and authority over the training and education of our children.
Pray for the national ministry of Exploring Homeschooling and other homeschool evangelism ministries as we seek to introduce Christian families to the blessings of private Biblical homeschooling.
Pray that God would show you how you might be a homeschool evangelist, too, and help share the blessings of private Biblical homeschooling with other Christian families. Pray about starting a Exploring Homeschooling type outreach through your church or support group, as well as on your own. Pray that God would give you a heart to reach out to newlyweds and young families with babies.
Please pray that we at Exploring Homeschooling would always do this ministry by His will. Pray in the name of the Lord against the evil forces of darkness that would seek to destroy this ministry and biblical homeschooling ministries across the country.
