Winter time as a teacher is filled with so many things. From holiday parties, to testing, to open house, we find ourselves working relentlessly to make the most of every moment. Nonetheless, as we go along this journey, I encourage you to take refuge in the one who helps us hold it all together. Here is my prayer:
I want to lift up my fellow colleagues today. I lift up their exhaustion, their worries, their frustrations and challenges. Some of them have health issues, family concerns, and some are dealing with things in the classroom that seem too much to bear. There are even those who wonder how much longer they can take, given the pressures of their situation. Right now Lord, I simply pray for their overall well-being, and I pray that you continue to give them the strength and endurance to finish what you have started in them. (Phil. 1:6)
In Jesus Name. Amen.
Love, Your Colleague
