Around Cornerstone: News

Praying In Unity As We Head Back to School
 

During the busy back-to-school season, it's hard to remember all the areas of prayer concerning our school. To help her family get out of the rut of praying about the same things over and over again, Cornerstone mom Trina Alleyne created a 30-Day Prayer Calendar and Prayer Prompts to specifically pray for Cornerstone.

“Prayer calendars help us to be intentional about praying for our school," said Alleyne. "And I love how our family prayer times always lead to great conversations!”

The Alleyne family has enjoyed being a part of Cornerstone Prep for the last four years. Five out of their six children are currently enrolled at Cornerstone in kindergarten, third, fifth, seventh, and eighth grade.

“Cornerstone is more than a place to receive an above-standard education; it's an extension of our family," continued Alleyne. “The teachers, staff, and parents all work together for the common goal of giving our children a Christ-saturated education that impacts them now and for eternity.”

Below, Alleyne shares with us a few scriptures and encouragement we can use to set the pace for our return to school, as well as keep a posture of prayer everywhere we go. 

God's Protection

“Ultimately it is God Who will protect and take care of our school, students, and staff; not our efforts,'' added Alleyne. "So we must pray and act with wisdom and prudence, which I believe we are doing with excellence. We must never forget to go to God in prayer and put our trust and confidence in Him alone to take care of us and our great school.”  

Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.
Psalm 127:1 
 

God's Provision

“Do not fear chaos, COVID-19, crime, uncertainty, or catastrophes, but fear Christ!” added Alleyne. "Matthew 10:28 says, And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell."

Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him!
Psalm 33:8 
 

God's Plan

“I have heard it said many times that we are living in uncertain times," said Alleyne. "But when we think about it, times have always been uncertain. We have ultimately never known what was going to happen tomorrow. But we have slowly started to trust in the 'certainty' of what we think is going to happen. Stay the course and stay focused on your eternal prize, standing before God Almighty and Him saying 'Well done!' Just the thought of seeing Christ, my Savior, is enough to get up every morning. It's His grace that will allow me to face and go through whatever happens in my life.”   

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.” Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.” But as it is, you boast in your arrogance; all such boasting is evil. 
James 4:13-16.
 

 

It is our hope that this 30-Day Prayer Calendar and Prayer Prompts will be helpful tools as you join us in praying for our Cornerstone faculty and families. 

We must never forget to go to God in prayer and put our trust and confidence in Him alone to take care of us and our great school. We have faith that as you and your family pray God's Word over our school, it will bring comfort, peace, and encouragement.
