Prayer and Encouragement for Teachers


Prayer and Encouragement For Teachers


Teachers are important and need prayer and encouragement. I salute qualified teachers who are dedicated to the work and who care about the students. They are so important and deserve decent pay. We want to make sure that teachers are qualified and care about delivering quality education without regard to the race or economic status of the student.

We have been praying specifically and strategically for our children who are a target of Satan.     God’s  power is released as we pray. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He has chosen as His heritage. (Psalm 33:12 AMP)

We must also be committed to praying for our teachers. In addition to prayer, we also need to provide the encouragement and cooperation that teachers need to educate our children. Encouragement refreshes and lifts emotions. It energizes people to do their best. 1 Thessalonians 5:11a NIV says, “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up.”

I salute those qualified teachers who work countless hours. Many have to address disciplinary and emotional issues  that affect their ability to teach effectively. Let’s send a big “THANK YOU” to all those who work diligently to give our children the best education possible.

Parents need to partner with teachers as they cannot do the job alone.  As  parents, grandparents and guardians, we have a responsibility to train up these precious children (our future generation) in the reverence and admonition of God – to teach them the ways of God. We want our children to respect authority figures and be held accountable for negative actions of disrespect and negative behavioral issues. Parents and teachers should work together for the good of the child such as  making sure a child does his /her homework, address disciplinary issues and emphasizing the importance of studying and obtaining an education.

Most of our teachers are doing their best to promote a healthy learning environment. We need teachers who are committed to effectively teaching our children.  Schools must be safe for teachers as well as students.

On the other hand we must guard against negative attitudes of teachers that adversely affects how and what they teach children. There are self-centered people who hold jobs in our educational system that are not concerned with the proper development of our children. They are there to promote their own agendas or there simply to draw a paycheck.

Let us assume our responsibility and involve ourselves in the education of our children. Parents, let your child’s teachers know that you will work with them to build the character of your child. We need to continually uplift the entire educational system and all those involved the mountain of education which includes our teachers and administrators.

The prayer of agreement is powerful and we must join our voices and hearts to consistently pray for those involved in educating our children. Below are specific prayer points to pray for our teachers.

Prayer Points for Teachers
• Pray for our school teachers to have the wisdom needed to effectively impart knowledge to their students in a manner that helps the child learn best. A wise teacher makes learning a joy… (Proverbs 15:2a)
• Pray for our school teachers that God will give them the grace to deal with day-to-day frustrations and problems.
• Pray that our school teachers would exhibit the life of Christ before our children. That they would be filled with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness and faithfulness.

Pray teachers will be patient and careful when giving instructions and teaching the various subjects along with teaching with godly wisdom. Those who interact with our students will operate with the fruit of the Spirit, demonstrating love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (Galatians 5:22-23)

Pray for the one in charge of the screening and hiring of teachers, and pray that he/she recruits effective teachers with integrity and a true heart for teaching children for our schools. ( See Matthew 9:38)
• Ask God to rise up Godly educators who are dedicated to their field and can capture the hearts and minds of our nation’s youth on each level of education. (Colossians 1:9-10)
• Pray our educators will pray unceasingly for guidance and wisdom to become the examples to their students. (I Peter 2:21) Pray they will know how to pray for their students.
• Pray that teachers will impart godly wisdom to form godly character in their students. (Luke 6:40)

Pray for the safety and protection of the teachers. Dismantle any threats or plans against them

United Back 2 School Prayers Journey- Protection

United Back 2 School Prayers-Protection

Cry Out in United Back 2 School Prayers by Linda Fegins

Pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord. Lift up your hands to him for the lives of your children” (Lam. 2:19)

The day after the Labor Day is the first day of school for public and private schools around the world although many returned to school last week. We need to consistently pray united back to school prayers for our children, parents, teachers, the school board and the entire school system. Through prayer, families, our children’s lives, and our world can be changed. God will show us how to use the power that believers have within through the power of the Holy Spirit to transform our schools and deliver them from violence, disorganization, and poor administration. Through united consistent prayer, God will give us the power, wisdom, knowledge, and creativity to solve the many school problems that plague our city schools and school board. Through prayer the right leaders will arise to enable the community to come together to take productive and strategic action to transform our educational system and our schools.

We need to pray for the educational mountain sphere that affects our children and youth’s minds and impacts their lives. Yes, our educational system can be changed significantly by united (corporate) and individual prayers.  Let us pray and put as I always say “put hands and feet” on those prayers and take strategic action to make a difference in our school system.

Pray for the school your child attends as you drive your child to school. Pray for a school in your neighborhood. Encourage your children to pray for their school and teachers.

Parents and the community need to unite in prayer in our neighborhoods and on the school grounds to serve as prayer warriors who battle in the spiritual realm for the lives of children and teenagers as they go off to school and colleges for at least a half hour to one hour each day.

Let’s challenge ourselves to daily pray for the protection of our children and that God will deliver them from evil and thwart every scheme of the enemy.
Here’s a prayer for the safety of your children.

A Prayer for Your Child’s Protection and Safety

Heavenly Father, you are the sure defense of our children, you are the rock of refuge, their high tower, and their protector. How I praise you and thank you for the certain knowledge I have that you care for my child, you will be with him/her always and you will keep him/her from the evil one.

Lord, you saved Israel from the hands of the enemies time and time again. You delivered your people and helped them to dwell in safety. Be a very present help to my son/ daughter__________________ (state their name) as he/she goes out to play, goes to school, walks on the school ground and sits in the classroom , attends college and faces the challenges and responsibilities in our society.

Lord build a hedge of protection all around the school building, playground, bathrooms, classroom and hide them under the protection of your wings as in Psalm 91 in the name of Jesus.

Lord in the name of Jesus we pray that you cover my children and the children and youth around the world through the blood and “stay the hand of violence against the children and staff of the school. Dismantle any plan to bring harm to them. Expose any weapon brought on the school premises and render it harmless”fn.1.

Keep our home safe from all fear and dispatch your angles to protect my children at school, on campus, on the playground, on the bus and walking home from school. Uphold my child, ______according to your Word, Lord, so that he/she might truly live, experiencing the abundant life you have promised to all who come to you. Let him/ her never be ashamed of you. Hold him/her up so that he/she will always be safe and will have respect to your statues continually. I pray that he/she will honor You and your Word. I thank you, Father for the promises of your Word, and that You are a shield unto them that put their trust in you. Deliver them from all who would harm them.

Your name, O Lord is a strong tower into which the righteous may run and find security, safety and protection. Amen.

Psalm 56:9; Psalm 94:22; Psalm 144:2; Deuteronomy 32:38; 1Peter 5:7; Matthew 28:20; Galatians 1:4; Psalm 46:1; Matthew 4:6; Psalm 91; Psalms119:116-117; Proverbs 30:5
(Prayers That Prevail for Your Children by Richards and Hildebrand and fn1 by Ida Rose Heckard).
