A teacher’s prayer

 

 

 

 

 

Please give me wisdom as I teach the young learners today. Please give me strength to endure the challenges that I know I must face. Help me to be more patient and kind to them regardless of how they treat me or how I feel. Help me love them unconditionally. Help me know when to speak and when to listen, when to praise and when to correct.

Help me to observe closely the expressions on their faces so I know if they really understand the lesson, and if they don’t, help me explain it in words that they will comprehend. I pray that I will inspire them to do things that they never dreamed possible, and that I help them unlock their greatest potential. Help me to be an encourager and treat them all with respect.

Thank you, for giving me this great honor. I am humbled by the great responsibility you have given me: to help shape the hearts and minds of future generations.

 

 

 

Help me never forget that teaching is a calling, and this calling is as sacred as any job on earth. May I be worthy of my calling.

Lastly, help me always remember to be a servant leader and support my teachers and staff whenever possible. I pray that we as a team will make a positive difference in the lives of every child entrusted to us.

Amen  🙂
