On My Mind

Teachers are on my mind today. Some of them are in their classrooms right now as I type this from my couch. Some of them were there Friday night and Saturday night while most people were already in bed.

Teachers will be on my mind all day tomorrow.  I am in awe of teachers and their dedication the week before school begins and the weeks of August and September as they put in countless extra hours to make sure the school year begins right!

Thank you teachers for all that you do at Back to School time and all you will continue to do in the 2014-2015 school year. Waiting and preparing for the year to start is the hardest part. Kids come in the morning and they will show you why all of this hard work was worth it.  Students and parents are trusting you starting tomorrow.  It is an awesome, God given opportunity! You are God's hands on Earth.

This prayer is for you...

Almighty God,

I come to you today and give thanks for all our teachers.

Thank you for the ways in which they give of themselves each day in the classroom,
serving and instructing the next generation of this land.

I thank you for them all now.

Father, please fill their hearts with courage from your mighty Spirit.

Fill them with your strength, so they may rise to every challenge and not grow weary.

Fill them with your wisdom, so that they may be able to make good judgement when guiding and helping others. 

Fill them with your peace, so that when stress and anxiety comes it will not overwhelm them.

Fill them with your joy, so that the passion they have for their lessons may spread to their students. 

We ask all this in the wonderful name of Jesus.
