if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 15 Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. 2Chronicles 7:14-15
Calling on those are called by his name...
The above Scriptures are so very encouraging during these dire times but it also serves a notice on what is expected. God has laid a charge for us who care about children and has given us an invitation to come boldly to Him in prayer. He said the the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God to the pulling down of strongholds. The Founding Fathers relied heavily on giving their troubles to God in prayer. Let us not forget to follow their legacy and do the same for our families of today. It is unfortunate that evil men have turned education upside down and teachers can not be blamed as they themselves are under duress. Join us as we lift children, families, teachers and other educators in prayer. Please share this article throughout and put the hashtag #Praying4thechildren.
If you are a family who have children suffering through the Common Core State Standards Initiative, please join us on March 20, 2019 at the steps of the Alabama State Capitol. This is a special time where hurting families will be prayed for and get a chance for their concerns to be heard. It is a time when caring churches can help stand with them. One incredible testimony of the harm that's been done is the story of the George Hall Elementary School in Mobile...click here for more.
Also read the Arne Duncan speech where he used George Hall Elem as an example. Event will be from 10 am to 2 pm and we will be joined by praying churches along with experts who will share information that will show how important it is to end the harm. Just as the pro-life movement turned when they showed the video the Silent Scream of how the child is being harmed in the womb, we hope to share with you the facts on how the child is being harmed in the mind. It is heartbreaking but we know that God is our Redeemer. Yes, the problem is big but we have a bigger God and He is able to help us. Be sure to join us if you are able and if not be sure to watch it on fb live. We will give you a list of medias that will be showing the event.
Check back on this article for more updates. See the downloadable pdf file that you can print and share with your churches. We thank God for his Word is a lamp unto our feet and He is our hope and help.

Jesus said to His disciples, “It is inevitable that stumbling blocks will come, but woe to the one through whom they come! It would be better for him to have a millstone hung around his neck and to be thrown into the sea than to cause one of these little ones to stumble." Luke 17:1-2
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children." Hosea 4:6
