School-Day Joy


Jamal, 12, and his mother, Rokeya, hug before he heads for school in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Parental engagement and support greatly increase a child’s chances of access to a quality education and sustaining a commitment to learning. But parents can also be a barrier to education when they support harmful local traditions and customs, such as child marriage, or rely on their children’s income.

Faithful Shepherd, help parents understand the value of their children’s education. May parents and other family members surround children with the support and encouragement to become all who You desire them to be. If economic support is an issue, may parents find additional means of income to provide for their family.

“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” —Proverbs 22:6 (NIV)
