Here’s a Quick Teaching Prayer to Help You Walk in Victory Each Day

  • SumoMe

Do you want to have the blessing of God in your teaching? Do you feel that you are prepared to walk into your classroom each day with the presence of God with you? “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God the Father through him.” (Colossians 3:17) I want to walk in victory each day. I want to know that I am not alone, but that God is with me. I want to know that I have prepared to walk into a room where there might be many negative influences, and yet be victorious throughout the day. I want to be able to give Him thanks for my students, parents, administrators and school in general. Maybe this prayer will be helpful to you. Many teachers have printed this prayer and prayed it each day before school. In this series of Christ in the Classroom, I am simply pointing out that you are Christ’s representative in the classroom.

Daily Teaching Prayer

“Father, I thank you for another opportunity to minister today! Everything I do today I will do for your glory. Open my eyes today to see who I need to speak with, who I need to encourage, and who I need to pray for.

Help me lift up and support those around me in authority today. Give me the ingenuity, the strength, the time and the proper attitude to do those things requested by those in authority over me.

Keep me from time thieves today. Help me be productive and fruitful. Everything I put my hand to will prosper. I will make progress today and feel a great sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.

Help me to stay fixed on my goals as well as all of the steps necessary to reach and maintain those goals. Help me stay on track. Help me guide my students, parents and anyone else associated with my program and keep them in line with my vision.

Give me wisdom and patience to deal with anything out of line or unexpected. Help me maintain my authority and leadership in my home, classroom, school and community.  Help me directly face any confrontation with confidence, conviction and clarity.

Help me walk in joy, peace, and love today!  In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
