May 25: A Prayer for Our Educators
Heavenly Father, we thank You, for our educators. Thank You for blessing our educators to have a successful school year. Thank You for each of their lives. Lord, we are grateful and we bless Your wonderful Name. Your majestic Name fills the earth! The heavens proclaim Your glory and the skies display Your craftsmanship. Day after day they continually speak; night after night they make Your presence known. Father, Your instructions are perfect, reviving our souls. Your decrees are trustworthy, making the simple wise. Your commandments are right, bringing joy to the heart. Your commands are clear, giving insight for living. Revering You is pure, lasting forever. Your laws are true; each one is fair. They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the honeycomb.
Triumphant Father, we declare Your Word over our educators as they approach the end of another school year. As the people of God, we declare that as they hunger and thirst after righteousness, they will be filled. Favor will surround our teachers like a shield and that they will have good relationships with their peers and colleagues. Father, we know that it is Your will that they prosper and be in health as their souls prosper. We declare that their families will live in peaceful habitations, in safe dwellings, and in quiet resting places. We declare that stability, salvation, love, wisdom and knowledge abide in their homes. Father, we confess that no weapon formed against our educators will prosper.
List a name of an educator and pray for him/her today. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you how you can be of help him/her:
Omnipotent Father, we ask You place a hedge of protection around our educators and their families. Holy Spirit, touch their hearts to fear You and hate evil, pride and arrogance. Holy Spirit, lead and guide them. Let the mind of Christ be established in them. Please give our educators wisdom, strength, and guidance as they organize plans and exams for the closing semester. Holy Spirit, please refresh and renew their hearts and minds.
Wonderful Father, forgive our educators for all acts of sinfulness (specifically confess the sins aloud). Forgive those educators who did not treat all of their students fairly. Forgive those who did not wholeheartedly desire for their students to learn. Forgive our educators for allowing our jobs to be a greater priority than our families. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that You have committed). Holy Spirit, remind our educators of all those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show You names or faces of people that You may need to forgive. As He shows You, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in Your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Holy Spirit, help our educators to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.
Sovereign Lord, Your Kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. Your dominion endures throughout all generations. Lord, You reign and You are clothed with majesty; You have girded Yourself with strength. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken. Your throne has stood from time immemorial. You are from the everlasting past. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
