Attempting to obey God and follow Jesus Christ our Lord

A Teacher’s Prayer

The First Day of School
Prepare each heart,

both young and old;

may each be well,

as day unfolds.

When bags are packed,

and lunches made;

with new clothes donned,

supplies arranged.

Lord, go before,

each one of us;

whether by car,

by foot or bus.

Let hope be held,

in every heart;

as we make way,

to year’s new start.

May every child,

find safety there;

may peace be found,

through smiles we wear.

Let each student,

find champion;

and know our care,

as they walk in.

God give us strength,

use us to be;

a voice of hope,

with kids we lead.

For all who come,

are capable;

may we provide,

a place to grow.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for new beginnings. Thank You for the privilege of partnering with You in preparing young lives to be tomorrow’s leaders. Thank You that as we begin a new school year, You have already set in place, which people are to care for every child who enters our schools. Strengthen and equip us to reach and care for each one, and may they leave a bit better at each day’s end. Forgive us for our oversights, and please stand in the gaps where we fall short. Protect every student and staff member that enter our schools, and help each to become the very best version of ourselves. May we honor You with all we do, and may many find way to faith in You. Amen.

Anne update: Yesterday was a quieter day for Anne, but I imagine a bit of rest was good. Today she has an important appointment. Please pray not only for her healing, but for wisdom and words for the medical community entrusted with her care. Please grant them Your words to speak. Hold her heart and her hand as she goes, and be her perfect peace. Blessings to you, my prayerful friends!
With countless thanks, Shannon
