Children today are being attacked by the enemy. Cheryl Sacks, a former educator and guest on Pray with America’s Leaders, has the answer.

From American Family Association. “Many parents feel helpless in the face of a clear assault on our children through anti-God, anti-family, anti­ biblical worldview curriculum and policies in schools,” said author Cheryl Sacks. “What these parents often fail to remember is that prayer is one of our most powerful weapons to fight against the schemes of the enemy…”

Do you want state prayer alerts?


Sacks, a former educator, became burdened with the recent issues plagu­ing students, teachers, and others in the education system. … But Sacks also knew there is Someone who can help bear these burdens. So she wrote Reclaim a Generation, the first 21-day prayer guide….

Calling the church

Each daily entry includes Scripture, a short devotional, and several prayer points. And Sacks rallies the church to take arms and join in praying for the school systems….

“Where the church is absent, a vacuum is created,” Sacks continued. “If churches don’t get involved, this vacuum will surely be filled by the philosophies and values of the world.”

Better together

The guide is useful not only for indi­viduals but also for Christian groups, couples, families and neighbors to pray together. During the 21-days, Sacks suggests individuals join together and host multiple prayer walks (or drives) around schools….

In the last chapter, Sacks inspires readers to pray for a spiritual awakening. And where is a better place for revival to start than on school campuses across America?…

I pray for all the student (K-12th grade) as they go back to school. I pray for the christian teachers who are on the battle front dealing with gender ideology. Holy Spirit empower them with strength to share truth to other teachers. Parents please get involved. Attend school board meetings, pray for the school board members, start a mom’s prayer group in your church. Lord, please open parent’s heart to the lies of Satan that are being taught in our schools. We pray for revival in our state of Pennsylvania.

Last week, just before our school district started the year, I did a prayer walk around the high school. There were some crows over in some trees along the edge of the property, cawing away. As I walked, a hawk flew over and landed on the top of one of the trees they were in. Several crows fled immediately, and a couple tried to stand their ground briefly. As they gave up, it symbolized to me how the Holy Spirit drives away the dark forces.
I pray for eyes to be opened to truth, and that all teachers, administrators, and school boards reject the trendy lies that are spreading throughout our society, and the Holy Spirit guard our children’s innocence, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

This is a powerful step to safe guard our children. We may not have prayer in our schools , but no one can stop us for praying for our schools. I will share the website with many friends.

Thank you for your encouraging words to intercede and stand in the gap to protect our children from the assault on their innocence. We come against indoctrination of all kinds especially that which attacks their gender. Lord Jesus thank You that You hear our cries and that Your perfect design of male and female will be acknowledged, honored and cherished in Your creation. We will be victorious and many will come to know You as their Creator. The devil is defeated because of what You did on the cross. Hallelujah!
