I Prayed have prayed
Father, thank you for answering our prayers to keep our schools safe. We praise you for your faithfulness and ask that you continue to protect our schools, Lord.

Thank God! This is a huge answered prayer and shows there are ways to prevent school violence that don’t include abolishing the Second Amendment.

From The Federalist. [A]nother school was attacked on Thursday, but it won’t make the headlines.

Post a prayer for your state!

 

That’s because this school — Walnut Park Elementary School in Gadsden, Alabama — didn’t have any victims except the would-be invader, who was shot dead by police after he tried and failed to bust into the building. Here’s how it all reportedly went down.

A passerby saw a man “aggressively” trying to get into the school building. When the man was unsuccessful, he tried several other doors, all of which were locked. The responsible observer called to report the man, the school principal put the building on lockdown and called in a police officer who doubles as the school resource officer, and that officer called for backup. If the reports are correct, the chain of command worked smoothly thanks to decisive action and quickly followed protocols.

The resource officer reportedly engaged the would-be invader, who then also allegedly attempted to forcefully enter a marked police vehicle and to take the officer’s gun. More police officers rushed to the scene to help, and the assailant was shot and killed. According to the city’s school superintendent, the schoolchildren who were there “seemed to be unaware the incident occurred.”

In other words, a man who “aggressively” tried to break into a school and take the firearm of a police officer was stopped because doors were properly locked and police officers acted bravely and urgently.

Let’s thank God for this!

Blessed be the Lord God Almighty who hears our prayers for the protection from violence of our children and the school staff. I pray that all churches would adopt their neighborhood schools to pray for them daily. That this would be church outreach and ministry . I pray that God would raise up praying parent groups at each school to cover the schools with the blood of Jesus and to surround the schools’ perimeter with His angels. We also pray for wholesome curriculum, no sexually inappropriate and immoral instruction, we pray for all staff members to genuinely love and care for the students, and for those who don’t to be removed. Bring revival to the children, teachers and parents. Bless our children Lord. Thank You.

Thank you, Lord for a well protected and secure school, plus the on-site police officer who acted quickly, calling in support who then took out the assailant.
Keep our children safe, Lord, and use your servants in the process.

Lord, I ask You to raise up what I call “Holy Spirit Squads” to cover schools, cities, government leaders, states, our Capitol, and Your people and their gathering places in fervent prayer for protection and peace. Amen.

    Let’s proclaim in faith that the schools in your county will be protected by God’s angels. We also pray that this incident will be communicated to the County Schools Superintendent and the County Schools Board so that they will understand the need for resource/police officers, one at each school. What’s the name of your county and the state?

Father, we truly thank you for protecting the children from this would-be attacker at all schools. We thank you in advance for the prevention of future attacks against children. Satan recognizes that this younger generation is going to usher in one of the biggest revivals in history, and Satan is trying to stop it, but he will not succeed. Thank you Father for dispatching your angels all around our children regardless of where they are.
