Weekend of Prayer Over Alabama Students is Aug. 7–9

First Priority of Greater Birmingham encourages all Alabamians to join in praying for students, teachers, faculty and administration during Weekend of Prayer Over Alabama Students Aug. 7–9.

We are living in uncertain times and this new school year is filled with fear, stress and anxiety.

Please pray for the health and safety of each school campus. Be in constant prayer for students who don’t know Christ. Pray that Christian students will be bold in sharing their faith and God will take away any fears they may have.

There are multiple ways you can be involved during the Weekend of Prayer:

  • When you pass by a school, pray for that school. Make a school zone your prayer zone and drive around the school as you pray.
  • Plan a community-wide prayer walk around the schools in your area. Work with your local churches to plan these prayer walks.
  • Take time to encourage students, teachers and administration. Call, text or mail them an encouraging card to let them know you are praying for them. Provide them with a specific Bible verse you plan to pray over them throughout this school year.
  • Commission students before they return to school.
