Prayers, Teachers

My February Prayer

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:

Dear Lord,

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

Dear Lord,

I am praying for all my teacher-friends right now. I feel their weary feet and I hear their heavy hearts. They are not only tired physically, but they are tired mentally and emotionally. They want to help their kids, and they continue to pour out everything they have everyday. Lord, please give them the endurance they need to carry on through this strenuous journey. You have called them and positioned them for such a time as this. I humbly ask for you to pick them up when they feel like falling, and cradle them in your arms with your everlasting love.

In your name. Amen.
