Exodus 33:15 Then Moses said,"If you don't personally go with us, don't make us leave this place. How will anyone know that you look favorably on me - on me and your people - if you don't go with us? For your presence among us sets your people and me apart from all other people on the earth."
Lord, we ask as Moses did, that you will personally go with each and every Neema student (past, present and future) and staff members. That your presence will fill the space around them and that they will walk assured that they are on the path you set before them. Let them be so aware of your presence that they neither push ahead or lag behind, but move forward at your pace, inspired and motivated by you and your unending love, aware of your direction. Father, we ask that your presence will be as real to them (and us) as it was to Moses and keep us all mindful that it is "your presence only that sets us apart from all others on earth".
