U4H 20 Days of Prayer || Day 3

Father God, 

We pray for the emotional health of our students, for provision of the resources that they
need to live with peace in their minds, bodies, and spirits.  

We pray for those students who externalize their trauma through anger and acting out.
May the people around them make them feel seen, heard, and loved. May they learn
new, productive ways of showing up and sharing their voice, and may they be treasured
for the unique people God has made them to be. We pray for those students who have
internalized their trauma in anxiety, depression, and withdrawal. May they know that
they are cherished and that their voice is important. May we be a community that shows
them it is safe to show up and speak up. 

Our children are a gift that you have granted to us. May we never use or abuse them,
and may abusers be kept far from them. Give us the words of life to instill in our
students so that they may grow up with an unwavering sense of dignity. 

In the Name of our Lord and Savior, 

Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health,
as it goes well with your soul. – 3 John 1:2
