Every day for the last three weeks I have been posting specific strategic daily prayers for students , their schools and college and the education mountain under PROJECT PASS- Praying Always for Students and Schools. I have requested your child’s, grandchild, nephew etc name and school/college from  Pre-K through college. Prayer is need for our teachers as well who have to teach our children.  Yes , teachers need prayer and encouragement as they deal with our children, some unruly children, children who have special needs , and family issues that teachers need to address.

Let’s pray for their dedication to education and for their protection.

Teachers- Pray for Passion and Dedication

Ask God to rise up godly teachers and educators who are dedicated to their field and can capture the hearts and minds of our nation’s children and youth on each level of education. (Colossians 1:9-10) Pray that your child(ren)’s teacher is instilled with passion and a love for students and teaching and will spark a passion for learning in the students. Pray that the teacher helps the students discover a talent or interest that motivates their desire to learn (1 Corn. 15:58)

Teachers- Protection
Pray that God will protect teachers and other educators and keep them physically safe in the classrooms and on the school grounds. Dismantle any plan to harm them. Protect them from negative and evil political pressures and policies. (Psalm 91; John 17:15)

We need to continually uplift the entire educational system and all those involved in the mountain of education which includes our teachers and administrators. Teachers need much prayer too. We need teachers who are committed to effectively teaching our children.  Schools must be safe for teachers as well as students.

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.

Teachers are teaching and training our children 5 days a week. They need prayer as a part of our children’s life. The prayer of agreement is powerful and we must join our voices and hearts to consistently pray for those involved in educating our children

On the other hand we must guard against negative attitudes of teachers that adversely affects how and what they teach children and how the teacher treats diverse students. We cannot tolerate teachers who make negative remarks about students and who do not really want to teach them. Below are specific prayer points to pray for our teachers. https://www.facebook.com/PrayActWriteRight
