Text a prayer or verse

Today try this:

Send a prayer or Bible verse via text message to someone who needs a lift.

Most text messages are 140 characters (including punctuation and spaces) so try to write a brief prayer or send a favorite Bible verse. Such discipline in writing prayers encourages brevity and getting to the heart of the matter quickly.

Some examples follow specific to the starting of the school year:

Loving God, bless my son today at school. In his work, in his play, with his friends, may he discover your joys today! Amen.

Only Wise God, guide the teachers at my daughter’s school today. May they lead her to discover the wonders of the world you created. Amen.

God, our one true friend, as the school year begins help (insert name) make friends who will be a support and encouragement this year. Amen.

God who calms the storm, calm our nerves during this first week of school. Help us focus to start the year off strong. Amen.


With school starting soon, imagine a student receiving a Bible verse or prayer via text from you during their day at school!
