Prayer Guide: August 29 – September 28, 2018

Our 2018-19 Bonus Verse:


“Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you
to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.
The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness
and put on the armor of light.”
ROMANS 13:11-12

New School Year – Praise God for a good start to this school year with 105 new students!

Welcome to the Immanuel Christian School family!  Please pray for new students and their families as they adjust to a new school, new friends and a new routine. (See list below of our new students). We thank the Lord for all of our faithful teachers, teaching assistants and staff who work diligently every day in their positions, as working for the Lord.

New Staff – We praise God for bringing us several new outstanding employees. We have a few new teachers and a new school nurse.

Parents in Prayer – Please join us on Tuesday mornings at 8:30 a.m. after morning drop-off.

You are invited to join other parents every Tuesday morning at 8:30 a.m. to pray for our students, our teachers and staff. This is a vital ministry that benefits all of us at ICS.  Parents meet in B201, at the end of the 8th grade hallway. Your child’s class and teachers will be prayed for specifically during the year. Contact Mary Sue Smith in Reception for more information. You are welcome to drop in when you can and especially when your child’s class is being featured!

New Family Sponsor Program – Praise for the family sponsors and students who have become buddies for new students. The New Buddy Luncheon is Tuesday, September 18. Pray that buddies will continue to reach out to our new students and that friendships will grow as a result.

Back-to- School Nights – Please pray for good attendance from our parents for these two very important informational evenings, so that all parents are well-informed. The dates are: Middle School – Thursday, 9/13 and Lower School – Tuesday, 9/18, with both meetings beginning at 7:00 p.m.

Wilderness Retreat – Pray for good team building at this 8th grade event on September 19-21 (8A) and 26-28 (8B). Pray that students will learn to support each other in new situations. Please pray for good weather and for all students and staff to be kept safe on both retreats. Pray for important Biblical truths to be seen and lived out during these retreats. Please ask for God’s blessing upon all training sessions and preparations.

High School Committee – Please continue to pray for the High School Committee, the Capital Campaign Committee and the School Board as they trust the Lord to go before them in the ongoing planning for the high school. Ask God for His help in hiring exceptional high school faculty who desire to mentor and challenge young men and women to grow spiritually, academically, socially and athletically. Pray also for continued wisdom in final lease negotiations, the hiring of architectural and construction firms and the approval process from Fairfax County. Praise God for those families who indicated strong interest in enrollment by taking advantage of the Pre-Commitment option. Ask God to direct additional families to our high school program.

Please pray for these new students over the next few weeks as they adjust to school.
