2015 Hawkins County Schools Prayer Walk

Expecting God’s Help has teamed up with First Priority, a school ministry in northeast Tennessee, to help coordinate this year’s Weekend of Prayer Over Students (WOPOS). The Tennessee State legislature recently passed an amendment that designates the first weekend of August each year as the Weekend of Prayer Over Students (copy of legislation attached). For several years, Expecting God’s Help (EGH) has promoted the Sunday before school starts in Hawkins County as the day the School Prayer Walk would occur. This year, they are proud to team up with First Priority to insure participation in Hawkins County continues, hopefully with prayers being said at all Hawkins County schools. Sunday, August 2nd from 2:00 – 4:00 pm will be the Day of Prayer Over Hawkins County Schools including Rogersville City School. Everyone is invited to attend and participate at one of the schools in Hawkins County. Those who may not be able to attend can participate by praying during the timeframe listed – or any time they possibly can.

“We hope that parents, students, relatives, principals, staff – everyone – will attend this special day of prayer.” said Dr. Blaine Jones of Expecting God’s Help. Prayer Guides and Bookmarks for reminders of what to pray for can be found on the EGH website or at the First Priority website. EGH is trying as well to organize local churches to be present to hand out Prayer Guides and lead prayers if needed. Some of the prayer subjects include prayers for the students, the faculty, the staff and for families of the students. Haley Wherry, Director of First Priority Blue Ridge, said “praying for the students in our area is not just a privilege…it's a necessity. Students live in a tough world. Each day, students are subjected to literally thousands of offensive images and words. They also face an enormous amount of peer pressure to become part of what is considered normal by the world’s standards. Without prayer, these students will not be able to stand against the insurmountable odds they will face from childhood until they leave this world”.

There are currently four schools in Hawkins County that have a First Priority group in the school – Rogersville Middle School (Jason Royston), Cherokee High School (Pastor Bobby Joe Hancock and Pastor Pat Tipton); Surgoinsville Middle School; and Volunteer High School (Chris Bishop). Wherry says that First Priority “would like to empower students for ministry in all the middle and high schools of Hawkins County” and is hoping that this initial foray into the WOPOS in Hawkins County will lead to just that. “Our group always will focus on promoting unity among Christian believers and this School Prayer walk is no exception. We are on board with what First Priority is doing in these Hawkins County schools and we are glad to partner with them for this Day of School Prayer” said Elizabeth Lewis, an EGH organizer. “We would love for churches and their congregations that are local to certain schools, to step forward and ‘adopt’ these schools to pray over them during the Day of Prayer and all year through” said another EGH founder, Alice Snodgrass. “More than one Church can come together at each school. We just need everyone to make plans to participate on this special day as we pray for some very special people – our young children and those who teach and oversee their education” said Sue Thomas of EGH. EGH and First Priority will be working with Rodney Lane of Church Hill who has overseen many organized school prayer walks in eastern Hawkins County. “We would love for churches throughout Hawkins County to make plans to staff a local school and hand out prayer guides and be available to lead prayers if necessary” said Lane.

Wherry encourages much the same as Snodgrass and Lane. “We need the people and our churches to come together and support these schools in prayer. They need prayers year round, they need our support year round”. Wherry would also like to assist local churches to empower their students as missionaries in the other middle and high schools of Hawkins County. Those who would be interested in assisting First Priority in this may contact Wherry at 423-676-3585.

Volunteers are still needed to bring and drive vans or busses and they can call Alice Snodgrass at 423-272-6648 to make arrangements.
