Dearest Heavenly Father, please watch over us as we face this cruel world every day. Help us to see the good in all these children, even the difficult ones. Please give us the wisdom and grace to see that these souls haven’t quite experienced the wonderful life as we have.
Lord, please hold our hand as we walk down the hallway each morning and enter our classrooms. Remind us often throughout the day that our school house is the only safe haven for some tattered, young souls.
They look to us sometimes for the light. Please allow us to shed the light of your love on each and every child we teach. Lift us up dear Lord, give us strength to continue this journey that you have set before us. Remind us daily that we are doing YOUR work.
We pray for patience, wisdom, strength, and an endless supply of love for these children of God. Most of all, push us to NOT ever GIVE UP on our goal.Return to Prayers for Teachers
