Teachers’ Day prayer |07 October 2020
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke
The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher.
Almighty God, We come to you today and give thanks to all our teachers.
Thank you for the way in which they give of themselves each day in the classroom, serving and instructing the next generation of this land.
We thank you for them all now.
Father, please fill their hearts with courage now by 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 judgment when guiding and helping others.
Fill them with your peace, so that when stress and anxiety comes it would not overwhelm them.
Fill them with your joy, so that the passion they have for their subject may become an infectious passion that spreads.
We ask all this in the wonderful name of Jesus.
