Joy Break: ‘We Pray for Everyone’
When we turn on our television or smart phones we are bombarded with news that brings us down. Where are all the good stories? Those stories are still there. Here’s one that we hope will bless you.
As many moms do, Jamisha Harris snapped a picture of her kids last week on their first day back to school. What makes this picture special? The kids were holding hands and praying.
Jamisha didn’t share that the family had lost their apartment the day before or that mom and dad recently lost their jobs. Even so, Jamisha posted the image on Facebook along with a prayer.
“Dear God,” wrote Jamisha, “This morning I’m feeling nervous and a little unsure but thankful, I pray for my children on their first day of school. God, I give them to You. And I ask that this school year you would use every person and every experience and every lesson to shape them into Your image, to grow in them, the fruit of Your Spirit.
Have a great year kiddos 2019-2020 Idea Bridge Academy.”
“It has been very hard for all of us,” Jamisha told Fox News. “And with all the tragedies events that have been occurring in the world lately, I feel nothing is safe for my children and we are praying because I am sending my children into this wicked world and mommy is not there to protect them.”
Jamisha said their family prays for everyone: “teachers, bus driver, friends, family members, we pray for a change and peace.”
“They may have taken praying out of schools,” she added, “but not out of God’s children.”
