I -- Michele Glance Rooney -- ardently pray that Emily will have a deep reverence for You and Your ways. May Emily
hide Your Word in her heart like a treasure, and seek after understanding like silver or gold. Give Emily a good mind, a teachable
spirit, an an ability to learn.
Instill in Emily a desire to attain knowledge and skills, and may Emily have joy in the process. Above all, I
pray that Emily will be taught by You, for Your Word says that when our children are taught by You they are guaranteed peace.
I pray that Emily will respect the wisdom of her parents and be willing to be taught by Brock and I. May Emily
also have the desire to be taught by the teachers You bring into her life. Handpick each one, Lord, and may they be godly
people from whom she can easily learn.
Let Emily find favor with her teachers and have good communication with them. Help Emily to excel in school and
do well in any classes she maay take. Make the pathways of learning smooth and continue to bless Emily with clarity of thought,
strong organizational skills, good memory skills and a strong learning ability.
I say to Emily according to Your Word, "Apply your heart to instruction, and your earts to words of knowledge"
(Proverbs 23:12). "May the Lord give you understanding in all things" (2 Timothy 2:7). Lord, enable Emily to experience the
joy of learning more about You and Your world.
