Prayer for Tired and Weary Teachers
(Hampton, VA USA)
Father God, in the name of Jesus, I come to you this morning thanking and praising you for each new day and moment that we have to live and abide in you. Thank you for your hand of grace and mercy upon each teacher who is responsible to minister truth- whether it be natural information or spiritual information.
Thank you for your grace to walk in each new day. We acknowledge your favor upon our lives and we give you praise. We thank you for renewing our strength through renewing our faith. When we are weary, Lord lift us up and encourage our hearts. Let us no longer be tired of the day's work. Let us find joy and peace in our labor, for we do it all unto you. Restore the joy of the salvation in the workplace.
Have mercy on our souls when we complain and grumble. Thank you for a chance to impact lives. God we acknowledge your sovereignty and thank you for each opportunity. We plead the blood of Jesus over our minds that we may think like you. We plead the blood of Jesus over every student for whom we are responsible that the instruction may fall on good ground.
We plead the blood of Jesus against every hinderance to their development regardless of where it comes from and who initiates it. We thank you that you are mighty and your blood is so powerful that it will cause the enemy to flee.
Thank you that no weapon formed against your teachers will prosper as we stand in the gap as workman for your cause. We thank you that you will provide for our families as your word has spoken. Thank you that we will not go lacking. Thank you that when people don't understand the intricacies of teaching that they will be slow to speak and quick to listen.
Thank you that you will give teachers a voice in the political arena so that we are not left uncovered and unheard. Thank you that we will no longer have regulations imposed upon us that you have not ordained and that we have had the opportunity to be adequately represented in the decision making process.
Thank you that you are our God and we stand in the place that you have called us to and we declare and decree that we will be found doing what you ask us to do, and we will be found being what you ask us to be. Thank you that we are more than conquerors and are mightily victorious through your word.
Thank you that you said you would be our rearward, so that we will not be overtaken as we strive to do your bidding. Thank you for favor--everywhere we go. For we ARE your people, and You ARE our God.
We love you and that's why we serve you.
In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
