“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. – Deuteronomy 6:4-9
Instruct us: Go before God today with love and passion. Ask Him to help us teach the next generation to love and fear Him with reverent awe. Pray for our leaders who teach our children on Sundays that they will be fully equipped. Pray for our children and students to have a love for God’s Word. Ask the Lord to open their minds so they can understand the Scriptures and obey.
