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.
