Spiritual Refreshment


Pray Like You Mean It


How often do you find yourself praying the same prayers over and over again? It is easy to fall into a monotonous prayer life and an apathetic faith.


What if we started replacing familiar prayers with ambitious ones?

As followers of Christ, we can bring absolutely everything to Him. He desires for us to pray prayers of unwavering faith. He wants to see that we believe He will complete a good work in us before He actually does.


Do not spend another day coming to the throne room with prayers grounded in routine — come with prayers bursting with ambition! After all, God is still in the business of working miracles.


Malachi 3:10 says, “‘Test me in this,’ says the Lord Almighty, ‘and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.’”


Whether you come to the throne room lifting up the prayer requests of others, asking for a need of your own, or simply praising God for who He is, do it with great ambition.



Getting to Know You


Meet ninth-grader Greyson Hoye.


Hoye enjoys traveling, studying history, and participating in debates. He feels called to bring injustices into the spotlight, and was recently given the opportunity to do so when he accepted an invitation to be a page at the state capitol building in Olympia, Washington.


He said the experience allowed him to see firsthand how the government works. He attended “page school” where he wrote his own bill to limit the accessibility of abortions — a topic he felt God had put on his heart.


Hoye appreciates that he has learned so much about biblical studies through Liberty Online Academy. He especially enjoys getting to connect with teachers and fellow students even though they are spread out around the world.


Hoye is interested in pursuing journalism in the future; however, he understands that God ultimately holds his tomorrow. 






Ask an Advisor


Question: How often should I expect to be informed about my student’s progress?

Answer: You will receive a monthly progress report and a quarterly phone call from your student’s academic advisor.
