Prayer For School Teachers And Students
God of the Universe thank you that you are perfectly faithful; you never forget, never fail and never take back a promise. You have promised that you will give wisdom to anyone who asks. Hear my prayer for wisdom and fill me with your love and your understanding. Help me to study by giving me a clear mind and a calm heart. May your peace be in my heart, your grace be in my words, your love be in my hands and your joy be in my soul. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Lord, my Rock and Redeemer thank you that you have plans for me that are for my good and your glory. In everything I do may I set an example for others by doing what is good. In my teaching may I work with integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned. Give me the strength I need to represent you as I teach. May the peace of God enfold me, the love of God uphold me and the wisdom of God control me. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
O Lord my God, thank you that you are the source of all true joy in life. Help me to teach others well. Guide my thoughts, words and actions to enable me to carry out this important work that you have placed before me. Increase my faith that anything is possible in your power. Let the majesty of the Father be the light that guides me, the compassion of the Son be the love that inspires me and the presence of the Spirit be the power that empowers me. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Mighty God, thank you that you know me and you love me. The ability to teach is a gift from you. Help me to use the teaching gift you have given me effectively. May I be filled with your spirit to give me the enthusiasm, strength and love I need to carry out my role. Give me assurance that you are always with me. May God the Father prepare my journey, Jesus the Son guide my footsteps and the Holy Spirit watch over me, on every path that I follow. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Faithful Father, thank you that you are faithful to fulfill all your promises. You are the ultimate teacher. You teach and instruct me in the way of life and guide me into your will. May I teach others with the wisdom and love that I receive from you. Remind me that my teaching is an act of worship to you. May the love of the Father, the tenderness of the Son, and the presence of the Spirit, gladden my heart and bring peace to my soul, today and for all days. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Heavenly Father, thank you that you hear and answer my prayers. Your word instructs us to start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. In my role as a teacher, please help me to work hard for the good of my students, treating each of them with care, love and respect. Lord, bless me and keep me, make your face shine upon me. Turn your face towards me and give me peace. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
