Our children and schools are under attack. A quick Google search of "school shootings" will bring you to several articles about shootings in our Nation's schools. The purpose of this blog post is not to talk about politics, Constitutional rights, or mental health (all topics that have their proper place for discussion) but rather to remind you that as a child of the Most High God, God has has given you power authority over the enemy through Jesus Christ! In Jesus Christ you have dominion over the works of darkness! While the schools have lock-down drills that are needed here in the natural realm (and yes, be sure your children practice those drills as instructed!) YOU must also take a stand in the spirit realm by declaring the Word of God over your children and their school, in the name of Jesus. The power is in His name and you have the authority to use it!!! Hallelujah!!
I've written this declaration for you as a starter. Share it with your friends, family, neighbors, PTA group, prayer group, etc. Feel free to add more to it as needed for your specific situation/location/child/school, etc. Just make sure it's based on the Word of God (the Bible) and that you speak this believing that you have already received what you have spoken.
Your Word says that life and death are in the power of my tongue (Proverbs 18:21). I know that Your word will prosper in the thing for which You send it (Isaiah 55:11) and that that You are faithful to actively watch over Your Word to fulfill Your will in this earth (Jeremiah 1:12). So now, in the name of Jesus-the name above EVERY name, and with the power and authority He has given me, I send forth and declare Your Word over (say child's name) and (say child's school).
I declare that (say child's name) is a good and perfect gift from You. (Psalm 127:3; James 1:17)
I declare that (say child's name) is perfectly loved by You. (John 3:16)
I declare that (say child's name) has heavenly angels who have charge over him/her and that those angels, who are always in Your presence, keep (say child's name) in all of his/her ways. (Matthew 18:10; Psalm 91:11-12)
I declare that (say child's name) is blessed wherever he/she goes. (Deuteronomy 28:4, 6)
I declare that goodness and mercy follows (say child's name) all the days of his/her life. (Psalm 23:6)
I declare that You are (say child's name) sun and shield and that You withhold no good thing from him/her. (Psalm 84:11)
I declare that (say child's name) is wise even beyond his/her chronological years because he/she fears You. I declare that his/her days will be multiplied and years will be added to his/her life. (Proverbs 9:10-11)
I declare that (say child's name) will obey and serve You all the days of his/her life and will reap the promises of a prosperous and pleasant life. (Job 36:11).
I declare that no weapon formed against (say child's name) will ever prosper. (Isaiah 54:17)
I declare that (say child's name) will not have any fear in the day of adversity, but instead will use the power, love and sound mind that You have given him/her. (2 Timothy 1:7)
I declare that (say child's name) will fulfill the plan You have prepared beforehand for him/her and that no plan of the enemy will derail or abort that plan. (Ephesians 2:10)
I declare that (say child's school), like Goshen, will be protected and covered even during times of trouble. The troubles of the world will not be able to infiltrate (say child's school) for (say child's name)'s sake. Because You dwell in (say child's name) by Your Holy Spirit, You, Almighty God, are (say child's name) defender, protector, and place of refuge and You are present wherever he/she goes even causing those around him/her to be blessed and protected. (Genesis 45:10-11, Genesis 12:2, Psalm 91:2-4, 1 Corinthians 3:16,)
I declare that (say child's name) is in perfect peace because he/she keeps his/her mind stayed on You and he/she trusts You. (Isaiah 26:3)
Thank You, Father, Almighty God, LORD of Hosts for protecting and guarding (say child's name), his/her friends and his/her school, bus and/or carpool. Thank You for Your peace which passes all understanding even during these darkening and perilous days. Thank You for Your joy, Your light and Your hope. All of this in the name of Christ Jesus our Lord and Master. Amen.
I'm in agreement with you my Sister!!!
Be blessed and Stay encouraged.
