Prayer For Teachers First Day Of School
Father, please fill me with your understanding as I instruct others, Help me to see the individual potential of every student I teach. Father, please fill me with your patience as I teach others, Help me to keep giving of my time and energy, especially to those who struggle the most. Father, please give me your divine wisdom as I am with my class, Show me when I must discipline and when I can show mercy. Father, help me to depend totally on You, For You are the source of my strength, courage and peace. Father, above all, may I love and care for each student I teach. Show me how to serve as Christ serves Give as Christ gives Love as Christ loves. I ask all this in the precious name of Jesus, My Saviour and friend. Amen.
Almighty God, We come to you today and give thanks for all our teachers. Thank you for the way in which they give of themselves each day in the classroom, Serving and instructing the next generation of this land. We thank you for them all now. Father, please fill their hearts with courage now by your mighty Spirit. Fill them with your strength, so they may rise to every challenge and not grow weary. Fill them with your wisdom, so that they may be able to make good judgement when guiding and helping others. Fill them with your peace, so that when stress and anxiety comes it would not overwhelm them. Fill them with your joy, so that the passion they have for their subject may become a infectious passion that spreads. We ask all this in the wonderful name of Jesus. Amen.
Grant our teachers an abundance of Your wisdom. Prepare their hearts to welcome and love our loved ones, and may we make sure to show them love and respect in return. Give them grace as they help students who aren't thriving, courage to say what needs to be said, tools and knowledge on how and when to speak love, and strength when they feel weak. When they feel unseen, remind them that no moment goes unnoticed. They are shaping the future in one million small - yet incredibly important - ways every day. We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the gift of learning they share with our children. Bless them, Lord, and may they see even just a glimpse of how their faithfulness will forever impact generations to come.
Heavenly Father, I continue to thank You for my children and the different stages that each one is passing through, and Lord, I pray that as they pass through each season of their education, You would be there to lead and guide and to protect and sustain.
Keep them safe today as they start a new school and a new class with new teachers and children, and Lord knowing that they are stepping out into the unknown, I pray that You would be with each of them, to watch over them and protect them from harm. Lord, I pray that they will not be harmed by unkind or careless words from other children or staff, and that they would demonstrate a truly loving spirit as they keep their eyes on You.
Protect them from both staff and students who seek to undermine the faith of Christians in a new school, but rather give them the wisdom to be able to answer wisely and not to be intimidated or threatened when their faith is challenged, as seems to be happening more frequently these days.
Keep them from worldly ways and the enticements of the flesh, and guard and guide their walk and protect their faith in Christ their Saviour, especially when they are challenged over what they believe. Protect them from those that would seek to bully them for their faith. Bring into their lives other Christian staff and students and give them the strength and wisdom to walk day by day with You and to be drawn closer to You every day. In Jesus' name,
Dear Lord Jesus, I thank You that I can always turn to You, and Father, today it is quite difficult as I am about to leave my little child at a new school for the first time. I think that my reservations far exceed those of my child, and so I pray that You would be with them throughout the day as their caring Shepherd and Lord, be with me so that I may rest in You too.
I pray that they will not get lost in the school corridors, or forget which is their classroom. I pray that they will not lose any of their equipment or feel frightened when they are not sure what to do or where to go. I pray that they will find friends in their class and that You will keep them from worrying if they have not got exactly the same equipment as the other children may have.
I pray that You would give the teacher a gracious attitude towards each child. Give the teacher the wisdom and compassion to notice any one that may be fearful or afraid. Lord, more than anything I pray that You would be with each child throughout the day and that this experience may be a stepping stone in the journey of life, which will be overshadowed and undergirded by you, every step on the way.
Give me courage to let go of my own children and to trust them into Your perfect care. May this be an opportunity for us both to draw ever closer to you with every passing day. In Jesus' name I pray,
Help me to be a fine teacher, to keep peace in the classroom, peace between my students and myself, to be kind and gentle to each and every one of my students. Help me to be merciful to my students, to balance mercy and discipline in the right measure for each student, to give genuine praise as much as possible, to give constructive criticism in a manner that is palatable to my students. Help me to remain conscientious enough to keep my lessons always interesting, to recognize what motivates each of my students, to accept my students' limitations and not hold it against them. Help me not to judge my students too harshly, to be fair to all, to be a good role model, but most of all Lord help me to show your love to all of my students.
Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You for the heritage and gift of children and for bringing my own precious child to this important milestone in their life, their first day at school.
Lord, I pray that You would be with them and that You would be there every moment of the day to care and protect. Take away any fears or concerns they may have, and develop in them a desire to make new and exciting discoveries.
Give the teachers wisdom and grace to help and cherish each child so that they may settle down and enjoy all that comes with constructive learning. I pray that my own precious little one will make friends and not feel lonely.
Help me Lord, not to be concerned, but to leave my child in Your hands, knowing that You have promised to be there every moment of the day. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus' name I pray,
Loving Lord ,I give my child into Your hands today, as they set off on this new journey of discovery on their first day at school. Father, may all go smoothly for them and indeed for all who will be in the class today. I pray that You will undertake for the little things that can so often go wrong or cause little ones problems or worries.
Father, I have sought to bring up my child in the way they should go and diligently taught them the truth of Scripture and that Jesus is their Saviour Who died for their sins and rose again, so that by believing on Him they will receive everlasting life. I have taught them to turn to You for all their needs and necessities, but Lord at times I feel that the current school system has strayed so far away from the truth of the gospel and I am concerned that they are not led away from all that they have learned throughout their early years of their life.
So Lord, I pray that you would protect my child's heart and mind as they attend this new school. Bring Christian teachers and other children into their lives who have the same Christian values that we hold so dear. Protect my child's mind and may their trust in Jesus be strengthened and grow as they start to attend school.
Lord, You have promised, that if we train up a child in the way that they should go, when they are old they will not depart from it. I claim this promise today and every day, and ask that You would help me to reinforce the truth of the gospel in the days that lie ahead. I pray that my little one will grow strong in the faith, and that their school education will help to reinforce rather than weaken their trust in the Lord Jesus, in Whose name I pray,
