Educator’s Prayer

Lord, my God, hear this prayer

Bless the students in my care

 

Together, we’ll face each day

Overcoming times of gray

 

Bring patience to this classroom

Allow these young minds to bloom

 

Create a safe learning zone

God with us, never alone

 

There may be days not at school

Find ways to make learning cool

 

Cover colleagues with your love

Devotion, to be proud of

 

Send families gifts of grace

May we all stand and embrace

 

Loving each child in my care

Walk together in prayer

It seems there are nearly infinite challenges to educating our youth (both in schools and universities).  My own daily prayers include significant time for teachers, students, and families during these challenging times.  I especially reach out to my former colleagues who are still teaching as well as two of my daughters who teach.  I may be retired from the classroom, but my heart still misses all whom I served and worked with.

  1. I’ve been learning a whole new way of teaching drama classes via zoom. When things change, we have to change too. It’s never easy, but God will be with us in all that we do.
