Prayer for Teachers is Needed!

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

Prayer Points for Teachers:

  • Pray that our children will be open to learning new knowledge and to acquire both secular and spiritual knowledge. Pray that God would give them the wisdom to know how to understand and use that knowledge and they use it rightly and for good. (Proverbs 22:6) (2 Timothy 2:15)
    Pray for our school teachers to have the wisdom needed to effectively impart knowledge to their students. 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 to the one in charge of the harvesting, and ask him to recruit more effective teachers with integrity 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 our school teachers that God will give them the grace to deal with day-to-day frustrations and problems.

Each week for the last three weeks I have been discussing about the need to pray for our schools and children and providing specific prayer points for our children. http://www.ladyofprayer.com/unite-cry-schools-linda-fegins/  We need to continually uplift the entire educational system and all those involved 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.

On the other hand we must guard against negative attitudes of teachers that adversely affects how and what they teach children. We cannot tolerate teachers such as Jennifer O’ Brien who made negative remarks about a group of largely Black and Hispanic first graders when she complained that she was a “warden for future criminal’s”.

back to school prayers imagesCA9SWSQH

Yesterday September 3, 2013 I called for Back 2 School United Prayers for our children and the schools they attend and posted about 10 specific prayer points for our school children.http://www.ladyofprayer.com/?p=1404 >

We need to continually uplift the entire educational system and all those involved in it which includes our teachers and administrators. We need teachers who are committed to effectively teaching our children. There is no doubt there are some committed excellent teachers. Schools must be safe for teachers as well as students. In 2011 a student hit a teacher in the back with a stapler, hid in a closet and started hitting the teacher in the chest when the teacher opened the closet door.

On the other hand we must guard against negative attitudes of teachers that adversly affects how and what they teach children. We cannot tolerate teachers such as Jennifer O’ Brien who made negative remarks about a group of largely Black and Hispanic first graders when she complained that she was a “warden for future criminal’s”. Our children are worthy of respect and are entitled to the best education they can possibly obtain in a positive and nurturing enviroment.

The prayer of agreement is powerful and we must join our voices and hearts to consitently pray for those involved in educating our children. Below are specific prayer points to pray for our teachers and adminstrators. https://www.facebook.com/PrayActWriteRight

Teachers
Pray:
• Pray for our school teachers to have the wisdom needed to effectively impart knowledge to their students. 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 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)

Administrators
• Pray for the standard of excellence to be restored in our educational institutes and that our educators will pass on that spirit of excellence, requiring excellence, rather than sloth and ignorance. (Ecclesiastes 2:13-14)

Cry Out in United Prayer : Blessings and Specific Prayers for our School Children-

back to school prayers imagesCA9SWSQH

Cry Out in United Community Prayer: Blessings and Specific Prayerd Over Our Schools and Children: by Linda Fegins

praying-over-our-schools-1

girls praying at schoolimagesCALG2C1K

It’s back to school time. We need to call for united prayer for the lives of children attending schools and “put feet to our prayers”. Many ministries have been calling for prayer for the children, teachers, administrators and school staff as they return back to school. Faith At Work Ministries and the Lydia Circle for Christian Business and Professional Women Prayer Team ( Director Min. Jacqui Showers, Visionary Minister Minetta Hare) along with myself Linda Fegins will be at Hart Plaza in downtown Detroit on August 31 at 7am praying for our schools as well as for law, education, government, media , the marketplace, and the City of Detroit.

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

Let’s begin to cry out to the Lord for the students, teachers and school staff in our communities.

Cry out today “Lord bless our schools”, See Lam 2:19 and then also specifically and scripturally pray the prayers below or as led by the Holy Spirit. 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 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. We must put what I call “some feet on our prayers”. Through prayer the right leaders will arise to enable the community to come together to take productive and strategic action.

Back to School With God by Jacqui Showers

Let’s Pray for our Public Schools :for Teachers, Students, the DPS Board, The School Emergecy Manager, Parents, Principals and the Support Staff

Join Minister, Author and Coach Jacqui Showers as Prayer Director for Faith at Works Ministry and Lydia Circle of Christian Business Women ( Visionary Minetta Hare) at 7:00 a.m., Saturday, August 31, 2013, at Hart Plaza for our 16th Annual Prayer Gathering for the City of Detroit, Detroit Public Schools, business, arts, media, family, education, government, medical and health, entertainment, law enforcement and sports

While walking the track at King High School last year, I noticed a father and son working out. I became so enthralled with them I actually walked around the track two times more than I originally planned. Needless to say, I watched this father perform exercise routines with his son in preparation for the start of the school year.

Initially, they ran the track and then started doing exercises. It was then they really caught my attention. As I watched them I realized that one day, whether that son made it big in sports or not, he would remember that his Dad took time to help him improve his game. No doubt as he coached his son, he also provided life principles that would stay with that young man for the rest of his life.

Our children need us. They need us to provide much needed guidance and discipline. They need us to impart words of wisdom and encouragement. They definitely need us to pray for them. Our schools need us to pray for them as well.

Not so many years ago, prayer was taken out of our schools. Each of us is fully aware of the separation of church and state, as much as we are aware of the consequences of eliminating prayer out of our schools. Our school systems no longer incorporate prayer into their daily schedules. We have to coach our children about prayer and how they can incorporate it into their schools. The schools are mandated by law, but we are not.

Prayer has this interesting effect, the more you pray the more your faith increases. As your faith increases your mindset is transformed to think like a winner. This is what we have to do for our children. We have to help them in thinking and becoming winners. Teaching faith principles rooted in prayer culminates in a new perspective and a winning attitude that translates into winning actions.

Let’s unite with other women where each one of us pledge to adopt a school and pray for that school, its administration, teachers and students throughout the school year. You can also join in the “Back To School With God” Pledge and Campaign by adopting a school and committing to pray for that school throughout the academic year.

More than ever, our children need to know that we encourage them to strive for excellence because we are excited about their future. Yes, they need to know we are praying for and with them as well.

As the Prayer Director for Faith at Works Ministry and Lydia Circle of Christian Business Women, I’m extending an invitation for you to join us at 7:00 a.m., Saturday, August 31, 2013, at Hart Plaza for our 16th Annual Prayer Gathering for the City of Detroit, DPS, business, arts, media, family, education, government, medical and health, entertainment, law enforcement and sports.

What we do for our children will have a lifelong impression on them. One thing for sure, we owe it to our children to do whatever it takes to ensure their success. That means not only praying for them, but praying with them as well.
