Words Of Encouragement
I thank God for the gift of dedicated and hardworking people like yourself who keep the wheel of knowledge rolling from generation to generation.
You are an invaluable member of society, and although it may not always seem like it, I want you to always remember that the job you do is making a difference that will last for generations to come.
You, dear Teacher, are a bright light, a friendly face and a gentle guide to all the kids under your tutelage, and that is no small responsibility.
You have been entrusted with the task of molding the future, and, I must tell you, you’re doing a marvelous job.
It takes a big heart to shape little minds, and I’m grateful that you have a ginormous heart.
I leave you this charge, from 1 Corinthians 15:58, to be steady and unshaking in the work that the Lord has assigned to you, with the blessed assurance that you are not laboring in vain.
Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the Lord’s work, because you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 15:58
Galatians 6:9 also urges you to keep up the good work because you’ll reap a bountiful harvest as long as you don’t give up.
Let’s not be weary in doing good, for we will reap in due season, if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9
God bless you, dedicated Teacher.
Prayer For Teachers At The Beginning Of The Year
I want to thank You for the selfless and passionate teachers and educators that You have blessed this world with.
While on earth, Your Son, Jesus Christ, spent every single day of His ministerial life imparting Your Wisdom to all who would listen, and His teachings are still transforming our lives today.
And so, God, we have come to understand just how important and honorable the work of teaching is.
As this school year begins, I ask that You fill each teacher with the patience it takes to nurture the minds of their students and the wisdom it takes to impart values that will shape students into valuable members of society.
Please, help teachers to train with diligence and correct with love.
Lord, flood the heart of every teacher with love and compassion and give them the strength to persevere in the dignified task that You have called them to.
Help them to be worthy role models for the students they inspire – walking the walk just as they talk the talk.
Teach our teachers the right path to lead our children, so that, according to Your Word in Proverbs 22:6, they will stick to it throughout their lives.
And give our teachers the grace to stay true to Romans 12:7 and teach with all their hearts.
or service, let’s give ourselves to service; or he who teaches, to his teaching; Romans 12:7
Your Spirit, oh God, is the Great Teacher. Teach our teachers the best means and methods to get through to each and every student appropriately.
Fill them with power, love and soundness of mind, dispelling every fear, just like Paul said in 2 Timothy 1:7.
For God didn’t give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7
And according to 2 Timothy 2:15, may each teacher work to please You, Lord, confidently imparting the truth to every student placed in their care.
Give diligence to present yourself approved by God, a workman who doesn’t need to be ashamed, properly handling the Word of Truth. 2 Timothy 2:15
I ask these things in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ.
Another Prayer For Teachers At The Beginning Of The Year
“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them…” Psalm 127: 3-5
I lift up our teachers and ask Father that as classrooms fill up with new students this year, that you will enable and guide each and every teacher and staff member of the school.
Help them to teach and care for our children with love, honor, and respect.
Fill their hearts with your love and their minds with your wisdom and give them the strength and patience to be the best teacher they can be.
I ask Lord that you would cover the school with your protective hand and send each student, teacher, and staff member home safely each day.
Thank you for those that instruct our children for they are a blessing.
I pray this is Jesus’ most precious name – Amen.
