Each day LJA students have the privilege of praying to our Heavenly Father. We help our students envision a school in many other countries where it is against the law to pray. It is certainly a privilege that we are allowed to pray in school. The text Matthew 18:20 is ever on our minds. This beautiful text states, “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Each morning and evening 24 heads bow in prayer.

We pray for our school, parents, finances, pets, and people in the church who are ill or have special needs. Recently, we heard from one of these special people in a touching letter. This letter let us know that our prayers are uplifting to his spirit and healthy to his soul.

Our special prayer friend wanted us to know that God is his Rock and the foundation of his faith. He loves the attention the LJA students give him when he comes to church and his heart is warmed that there are people praying for him in school.

Your church school touches the lives of many people in this church. Please continue to pray for us as we continually pray for you. Certainly, prayer is the renewal of spiritual life and the transformation of character.
