Don’t miss the annual Bless Our Schools Sunday, September 16, 2018
Every year on the third Sunday in September, churches around the world pray for the schools, teachers, staff, and students in their congregation.
As a result, students and staff feel bolstered in prayer and ready to stand firm in Christ. Moms unfamiliar with Moms in Prayer discover a powerful way to impact the lives of their children and schools.
What people are saying about Bless Our Schools Sunday:
“The pastor at our church incorporated BOSS into our corporate prayer time. During the service, we formed small groups and prayed fervently for our school district, leaders, staff, students and families, using the BOSS prayer sheet bulletin insert as our guide. It was a powerful time of focused prayer. After the service, two couples who were visiting introduced themselves. Turns out, they were retired school administrators. They were so moved that a congregation would intercede for our schools in such a focused manner. They requested information for Moms in Prayer to share with their congregations back home”—Mary, Moms in Prayer member.
“At my church, I prepared a 3-minute talk and wrote a blessing. It was very moving to see the students stand to receive the blessing and then the teachers, and entire congregation participating with outstretched hands. After service, a woman stopped at my table and said, ‘I could do this!’ So with just two of us, we began a church-based Moms in Prayer group. Soon we had two more! So there were four members our first year, six the next, and we now have ten! Each September the ladies share their MIP testimonies with our congregation. We have women representing three countries in Africa, one from Colombia, a grandma of 80 years, a brand new mom, and all ages in between. The Lord has been so good to unite us and draw us together in Moms in Prayer”—Deb, area coordinator.
“Our BOSS event resulted in two teachers committed to starting a group in Paraguay”—Moms in Prayer group leader.
