“Teaching has an extraordinary moral depth and is one of man’s most excellent and creative activities, for the teacher does not write on inanimate material, but on the very spirits of human beings.”  ~ The Catholic School on the Threshold of the Third Millennium, #19

A Prayer for Teachers

Loving God, all wisdom and knowledge comes from you.  Bless all teachers so that as we guide our students, they too will be guided by Your grace.

Let us always see Your face, Jesus, in the faces of those we teach.  Help us understand that we instruct others much more by who we are than by what we say.

Strengthen us with enthusiasm for our ministry, and hold us up on the days we need encouragement and sustenance.  Give us patience when managing classrooms and perseverance when grading papers.

May we have the support of administrators and parents as we collaborate in the formation of young people.  We also pray for adequate resources that allow us to do our jobs well.

Most important, God, let Your love be the guiding principle that informs and upholds our ministry.

We pray these things in the name of Jesus, our Savior and our Teacher. Amen.
