City Transformation: Education
- Pray today for the elimination of racism and racial politics in our city’s schools, so that no one will be held back by either their own or others’ expectations, all will receive a quality education, and all will be empowered to fulfill the destiny to which God has called them.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it” (Prov. 22:6). In his ministry, Jesus knew the importance of teaching and learning, of mentoring and discipleship. Our city has a smorgasbord of educational options at all levels, but politics, controlling special interests, economics, and family dysfunction often dilute or hamper the quality of education available. It isn’t enough to “Christianize” our schools. We need Kingdom thinking and creativity to bring transformation in all our educational systems.
