A Teacher’s Prayer

Heavenly Father,

I come before You today humbly and with gratitude, seeking Your guidance and wisdom as I stand before my students.

I ask that You grant me discernment to understand the unique needs and abilities of each individual in my class.

May Your Spirit empower me to communicate Your truth effectively and to model Your love in my actions.

May my teaching bring glory to Your Name and draw others closer to You.

I pray for Your protection over my students, both physically and spiritually, and for Your provision for their needs.

I trust in Your sovereignty and pray for Your will to be done in the lives of my students.

This is my prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and savior. Amen.
