Prayer #143: For the Increase in Homeschooling During the Coronavirus Crisis
In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, interest in homeschooling is growing across the country. As many schools around the nation are rolling out their reopening plans with a return to in-person classes, more families are looking into homeschooling, at least until the COVID threat subsides. A recent poll from the American Federation of Children indicated that 40% of respondents were now more likely to pursue homeschooling. Homeschooling organizations such as Midwest Parent Educators and the National Homeschool Association are reporting a greatly elevated number of requests for workshops, help on learning to homeschool, and suggestions for curriculum.
Pray for the many parents around the nation that now homeschool their children. Pray for God to lead them as they do so, and that their children would greatly benefit from schooling at home. Pray that this would be a beneficial time for the whole family as well. Pray for God's wisdom for parents as they prepare and teach. Pray too for these many families that are considering homeschooling. Pray that the Lord would lead them in the way that they should go.
Prov. 2:6: "For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding."
