Lord, please give me the strength and wisdom to keep the peace within my reading intervention classes. I know that I am here to help these middle school students for YOUR purpose and I hope to feel your presence on the difficult days as well as the wonderful days.
Please open my students hearts and minds to accept my teaching in the areas of reading, writing, social studies and social development. Even though it is the beginning of the year, my new group of 7th graders are having a difficult time with the structure that I am offering for them.
Please be with me. In Your name I pray, Amen.
