Let Us Pray

Are our schools safe? I had a friend ask me that question the other day because she was concerned about her son at school. I can’t blame her. In the news lately has been one shooting after another at a school. Or some child has brought a gun to school and thankfully been caught before anything bad happened. I should not have to be reassuring a parent or for that matter a student that our schools are safe. This should never be an issue, but sadly it is today.

In fact I had a student in one of my classes talk to me about he didn’t feel safe at school anymore in light of the new school shootings. Our children shouldn’t have to worry about something like that. But how can we guarantee that any place is safe? Not in today’s climate.

So what do we do? One thing we can do is pray for the safety of our schools. Our children need our prayers. Please take time to ask for the Lord’s protection over our schools and children. Our students should not fear going to school.
