Prayer of Agreement Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 18:19) ______________________________ A Prayer for Our School System and Children Father, we bring before You the county school system and the men and women who are in positions of authority within the school system. Discretion watches over them; understanding keeps them and delivers them from the way of evil and from evil men. We pray that men and women of integrity, blameless and complete in Your sight, remain in these positions, but that the wicked be cut off and the treacherous be rooted out in the name of Jesus. Father, we thank You for born-again, Spirit-filled people in these positions. Father, we bring our children, our young people, before You. As parents, we train our children in the way they should go, and when they are old they shall not depart from it. Our children shrink from whatever might offend You, Father, and discredit the name of Christ. They show themselves to be blameless, guileless, innocent and uncontaminated children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and wicked generation, holding out to it and offering to all the Word of Life. Thank You, Father, that You give them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom, and bring them into favor with those around them. Father, we pray and intercede that these young people, their parents and the leaders in the school system separate themselves from contact with contaminating and corrupting influences. They cleanse themselves from everything that would contaminate and defile their spirits, souls and bodies. They live and conduct themselves honorably and becomingly as in the open light of day. Satan, we speak to you in the name of Jesus. We bind you, the principalities, the powers, the rulers of the darkness and wicked spirits in heavenly places and tear down strongholds, using the mighty weapons God has provided for us in the name of Jesus. We bind every spirit of the occult — astrology, witchcraft, every familiar spirit. We bind sexual immorality, idolatry, obscenity and profanity. We bind those spirits of alcohol, nicotine and drug addiction. We commission the ministering spirits to go forth and police the area, dispelling the forces of darkness. Thank you, Father, that You are the delivering God. Thank You that the good news of the Gospel is published throughout our school system. Thank You for intercessors to stand on Your Word and for laborers of the harvest to preach Your Word in Jesus’ name. Praise the Lord! Amen.
What does it mean that the Lord is my banner? There Exodus 17:15–16 tells us, “Moses built an altar and called it The Lord is my Banner. He said, ‘Because hands were lifted up against the throne of the Lord, the Lord will be at war against the Amalekites from generation to generation.’” “The Lord is my Banner” is the translation of the Hebrew Yahweh-Nissi. Earlier in Exodus 17, we read of the Amalekites attacking the Israelites at Rephidim. Joshua and the Israelites fought against the Amalekites while Moses stood on top of a hill with the staff of God in his hands. When Moses’ hands were lifted, the Israelites were winning; when his hands were lowered, the Amalekites were winning. Understandably, Moses grew tired, so he sat on a stone, and Aaron and Hur held up his hands. The children of Israel gained the victory (v.13). God then instructed Moses to write the account of the battle on a scroll so that it would be remembered (v.14). It was then that Moses built the altar he named “The Lord is my Banner.” That name proclaims God’s leadership and the protection of His people. A banner is something that identifies and unifies a particular group of people. For example, a military flag or standard is sometimes called a banner. The Israelites’ saying, “The Lord is my Banner,” was a way of identifying themselves as the unified followers of the Lord God. A banner also functions as a rallying point for troops in a battle. The altar Moses built in Exodus 17 marked the place where God intervened on behalf of His people and promised to utterly defeat His enemies. Psalm 20:5 says, “May we shout for joy over your victory and lift up our banners in the name of our God.” In verses 6–8 we read, “Now this I know: The Lord gives victory to his anointed. He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary with the victorious power of his right hand. Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.” God’s people continue to say, “The Lord as my Banner,” because it is in His power that the enemies are vanquished (Ps.60:4–5). The Lord is our Banner in that He is the One under whom we unite. He is our Savior. We are rescued by Him and identified in Him.
