Prayer Guide: May 22 – June 14, 2017

Our 2016-17 Bonus Verse:

“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

Hebrews 4:15-16

End of quarter tests and final exams – We are down to our final weeks of school!   Please pray for all of our students, staff and teachers as we finish up this school year with enthusiasm and determination to do our best.

Sports Day – Please pray for Travis Briggs and Lisa Fisher and their committee, as they prepare for this special outdoor event for our students on Thursday, June 8.   May God give us good weather and many volunteers to help make this a successful and fun day.

Results of the ICS FIESTA – We thank God for his provision of the money raised at this event. The evening was very special and your prayers were effective!

Departing faculty and staff members – We have several people leaving ICS this year, including one retirement, Donna Bradley.  Please pray for these faithful servants as they move on from here to the next season of life. May God bless each one richly!

Student Verse Recitation – Please pray for our students to be diligent to study and learn their Scripture verses well, so that these verses are truly hidden in their hearts for a lifetime.  Also, please pray for those students who have taken on the challenge to recite 100 verses this year, for God’s help as they memorize.

Admissions – Please be praying over the summer for potential families who will consider our school for their children.

May God orchestrate the details for new students to be admitted and fill our classrooms for the 2017-18 school year.
