It’s that time of year again! Some of my readers have already started this school year, but most begin tomorrow. I am praying for you! I am praying for your students. I am praying for this wonderful and worrisome time of year we all call Back-to-School.
May God cover you, your families, your students, your classroom, your books and even your crayons with His peace and wisdom.
A Teacher’s Prayer
A new school year is about to begin
and my classroom door will soon open.
Open my mind and heart to each of your precious children
Help me remember, Lord, how young my students are:
give me patience to help them grow
may I be clear in the things I say and do,
and in how I say and do them…
Send your Spirit to fill me with your gifts;
Lord, open my mind and heart to my students’ parents
Help me to teach as you would, Lord
Help me to be patient until the last bell rings…
A new school year is about to begin, Lord,
