First things first. This portion of our website is an ALERT, not an alarm. There is a document posted here that could be quite alarming if read from a position of fear. However, from a position of faith, it is an ALERT to awaken this nation, and particularly, parents of school age children to be on the ALERT concerning safety of students at all schools. This includes public, private, charter, church, and day care centers. It is an ALERT. The American Heritage Dictionary defines ALERT as being vigilant, attentive, watchful; mentally responsive and perceptive; quick in action; a warning signal of attack or danger.
We have taken the word ALERT as an acronym to mean:
Terrorism (against our children)
Scripture in I Corinthians 1:27 tells us that God uses the foolish things to confound the wise and that is exactly what the ALERT Project is about. It is a simple form of defense by citizens of the United States to defend and to protect the schools of America. It is not anything spectacular or massive. It is simply parents, grandparents, and neighbors walking the perimeters of schools in their area and praying a prayer of faith to erect spiritual fire walls around school properties. This project is not for the spiritual mighty, it is for individuals who simply want to see schools and the children that attend them kept safe.
A scripture found in Matthew 18:19 tells us if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. Two individuals walking school properties together praying a simple prayer can be the best defense against any intruders that would want to bring harm to students, staff, or administration.
May you truly sense the presence of the Lord as you respond to this ALERT.
