00397 - Bless Your Nearest School

Blessing our local school is a beautiful way to encourage hard-working staff dedicated to our community's future generation. It might be dropping off flowers or chocolates for the staff or offering our time and skills as volunteers. Our willingness to serve can make a significant difference.

Proverbs 16:24 says, ‘Kind words are like honey—sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.’ (NLT) This scripture reminds us of the power of our words to speak encouragement, kindness, and affirmation over our local school community.

By speaking kind words, volunteering our time and skills, and lifting the school up through prayer, we can bless our local school and contribute to the well-being and growth of the students and those who serve in the education community. Most teachers would welcome encouragement and prayer with open arms. Go tell them they are valued for who they are and what they do.

Quote It’s so awesome to bless people who invest their lives into the coming generation.


Lord, I pray a blessing over my local school; may their day be full of thoughts of you. Amen.
