Prayer and The Covenant School

Dear Covenant School Parents,
We are so grateful to be able to partner with you in prayer for our school (students, faculty, and parents alike!). The Covenant School is a place where prayer is welcome always, and as God’s Spirit leads, please feel free to pray for each other on campus.

This year our organized efforts will be focused mainly on praying over our children. We will be using a prayer book called “Mom’s Prayer Journal: A Guide For Praying God’s Heart Over Your Children” written by Rachel Jones. Mom’s and Dad’s alike are invited to join us on the 2nd Thursday of the month to pray during chapel (8am to 8:30am) over a specific class. Here is our prayer schedule:

October 10th – PreK Classes

November 14th – 6th Grade

December 12th – Kindergarten

January 9th – 5th Grade

February 13th – 1st Grade

March 12th – 4th Grade

April 9th – 2nd Grade

May 14th – 3rd Grade

Please meet us at the circle desk and we will head up to the classrooms a little after 8am.

*In addition, a small group consisting of the prayer team and some school leadership will be taking time to pray for specific school and family needs each month. If you have a prayer request that you would like prayed over feel free to email your request to: prayer@thecovenantschool.com
