Father God,

Our adult children and their spouses are navigating uncharted waters. They are currently struggling with whether to send our grandchildren back into the classroom or keep them at home for online school. This is a difficult dilemma, especially as the COVID-19 cases continue to increase.

We pray that they do not “lean on (their) own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5) but turn to You for guidance and direction.

We pray that You give them “wisdom and understanding beyond measure, and breadth of mind like the sand on the seashore” (I Kings 4:29) as they face this difficult decision and others, which are sure to follow.

In Christ’s name, we pray.
