My prayer is to be focused on what I love to do and to do it as if Jesus Himself were sitting on my risers, in the conference room, in the main office and with my colleagues
Love this! As a former public school teacher turned homeschooling-one-but-sending-one-to-public-school-mommy - praying that He would be glorified this year.
I remember prayers as a homeschool mama....some of the best times in my life.
Hi Kendal! I am coming over from Unforced Rhythms. I think I would add the gift of insight. To discern the joys and sorrows of each child I teach. You can't know everything about your children, but even just a fact or two can help direct you to be a positive impact. Have a great year!Ceil
Beautiful, Kendal. Your list is so complete. I might add "attentiveness" since I struggle with giving someone my whole attention.
I agree with Lisa, Kendal. This prayer is beautiful.
Praise as they learn, love as they may be hungry for that, ability to focus on what they are supposed to be learning...these little ones that I tutor have already lost confidence in themselves and that is almost more my job than teaching them how to read. For the teachers, I pray for a calm spirit, a joy in teaching, a deliberate willingness to teach with the love of Jesus. They can make such a difference in each child's life. Caring through Christ, ~ linda
Amen. And I would add acceptance...a laying down of judgment and loving each other with abandon, in a Christ-like, holy way.
Safety and the tangible needs of food and clothing for those whose families lack. Thanks for linking with Unforced Rhythms!
Praying these words with you. Thank you for linking with us at #TellHisStory.
Yes - I can see this prayer covering - I love the 'eyes wide open' and the wonder - but on both sides of the learning. Yes.
Beautiful! Praying in agreement with you! Visiting from Jennifer's this morning for #TellHisStory!
I'm so glad that I linked up next to you at 7 Days Time. My prayer is that we see them with the eyes of Jesus and that they see Jesus in us. Thank you for the post!
divine teachable moments and leaders to rise up for Christ among student bodies all over.
You said it, sister. Perfect list! Hmmm... I think I might add "ability to encourage." To encourage students, those around us and even ourselves on hard days. So glad you shared this over at #EverydayJesus! Thank you. So very much.
Wonderful list. I would add forgiveness to the list. So many times when I was in school I held way too many grudges. Happy SONday!
