I am grateful Good and Gracious God
for my teachers who have walked in and out of my life
several of whom have left lasting impressions
about live, learning, work, faith, and serving
As teachers have returned, are returning and will be returning to the classroom during this time of the year…
Grant them a caring heart for all their students so they teach with a passionate caring
Give them a clear mind so they teach with a focused mind
Help them be organized so they teach with purpose
Provide them with patience with themselves, their technology, their students and parents so they teach with patience and grace
Grant them Your peace
Grant them Your wisdom
Grant them Your mercy
So they teach with a quiet heart, a sharp mind, and a merciful spirit
Help them to be firm and fair so that learning is enhanced.
And Father I finally pray keep them and their students safe.
Thank You Lord for learning.
