Itís time we opened our eyes and ears and started realizing that we live in world where we can make a difference if we learn to pay attention to what is going on around us. How can we pray for people and situations when we refuse to open our ears and eyes to the truth of what is really happening in our world?

Someday we will all have to face the consequences of closing our eyes and our ears.

My purpose for homeschooling is not to escape all the horrors that are going on in the world.

I am in contact with them daily.

A day at our park. I was collecting water samples out of the pond for our homeschool science class. All of a sudden I was approached by about 4-5 teenage boys all dressed in black and with mouths filled with a bad attitude. They started to harass me. Little did they know that I have worked with teenage boys in public schools before. So by the end of our time together, I had them collecting samples out of the pond also. They were starving for Godís love and discipline.

At a parking lot at a store. I was putting my groceries in the back of a car. Two boys approached the car. One was holding a video camera, the other told me that they were doing a documentary for school. These boys were very well dressed, showing that they came from well to do parents, that made sure they left the house appropriately dressed. The boy not holding the camera asked me what I thought about President Bush. I told them that he is our president and so I pray for him. I pray for our nation also, because our nation is in trouble. So then he asked if I wanted to have sex with our president. I said, ďWhy would I want to do that?Ē. Then he asked me if I wanted to have sex with him. I asked him why would he want to have sex with a 50 year old woman and so he said that he thought I was 70. So I told him that maybe I was 80. Not being able to get a reaction out of me, they refused to talk with me any longer. They proceeded to an older couple a few cars down. At first the couple was laughing with them and then all of a sudden the man clenched his fists and started chasing them. He proceeded to flag down the security guard. I prayed to God to convict the hearts and minds of those boys, and to show them the wrong path that they were on. I know God has answered this prayer.

A friend that I have, sent her daughter to a public high school that is located in a high income neighborhood. After hearing that the students were having sex in the bathroom, she went to the school herself to see what was going on. She couldnít believe all the things that were going on at school. After having other horrible experiences in the elementary school, she pulled her children out of school and started homeschooling. The other parents refused to go the school. If they didnít see it or hear it, then they were sure that it wasnít happening to their children. I have been exposed to many other similar school situations with friends.

So I will leave you with a comic strip that was in the newspaper.

Husband sitting in his chair reading the newspaper. Wife cooking dinner and washing dishes.

Husband says, ďThis article says that the sex, drugs and murders in the schools are getting out of control. Why wonít God do something about this?Ē

Wife replies, ď Why honey, havenít you heard? God isnít allowed in the schools any more.Ē

Itís time we opened our eyes and ears and started realizing that we live in world where we can make a difference if we learn to pay attention to what is going on around us. How can we pray for people and situations when we refuse to open our ears and eyes to the truth of what is really happening in our world?

There is POWER in PRAYER!
