Prayer of a Teacher

Almighty God,

I come before You today as Your faithful servant. I give You thanks for the privilege of teaching and for the opportunity to guide and nurture the Young minds entrusted to my care.

I humbly ask for Your wisdom and guidance as I strive to impart knowledge and wisdom to my students. I implore Your grace and protection as I lead them in the ways of righteousness, and for Your love to be evident in all that I do.

I pray for patience and understanding, that I may be able to handle each situation with grace and compassion. I seek Your strength to overcome any obstacles that may come my way and for Your guidance in making wise decisions.

I also lift up the students in my care, asking that You would protect them and guide them in the way they should go. I pray that they would be open to Your Word and that they would come to know You as their Savior.

I give You all the glory and honor, and I thank You for the privilege of serving You through the vocation of teaching.

This is my prayer in Jesus’ name, Amen.
