Prayercast: Teachers’ Prayer Call For Classroom Management, Lunchroom Protocol, And Restroom Procedures

Teachers Who Pray | Prayer Call

Teachers gain strength and wisdom from God through prayer. As Martin Luther once said, “To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.” In this week’s prayer call, educators collectively focus their supplications on three crucial aspects: classroom management, lunchroom protocol, and restroom procedures. Recognizing the profound impact these elements have on shaping the educational experience, teachers seek divine guidance to navigate the challenges inherent in their profession. Join us as we unite in prayer, invoking spiritual strength to foster positive classroom dynamics, harmonious lunchtime interactions, and a sense of responsibility in students when it comes to restroom procedures. Together, let us embrace the transcendent support that prayer provides, fortifying educators for the sacred task of molding the minds and hearts of the next generation.

Prayercast: Teachers’ Prayer Call For Classroom Management, Lunchroom Protocol, And Restroom Procedures

Father, we enter your gates with thanksgiving and your courts with praise, and we give thanks to you and we bless your name. Lord, you are good and your steadfast love endures forever. Your faithfulness lasts for generations. You are perfect and all your ways and your word always prove to be true. You are a shield for all of us who take refuge in you Lord, for who is God but you, oh Lord, and who is a rock except our God. You are our rock and our salvation. We love you, Lord. You are our strength. Lord, you are a rock, our fortress and our deliverer, our God, our rock in whom we take refuge. Our shield and the strength of our salvation, our stronghold, and we call upon you, Lord, who are worthy to be praised and we are saved from our enemies.

Oh Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the Earth. You have set your glory above the heavens and out of the mouths of babes, infants, and some of our students. You establish strength because of your foes to still the enemy and the avenger. When we look at your heavens in the works of your fingers, the moon and the stars which you have set in place, who are we that you are mindful of us?

Oh Lord, our Lord, how majestic your name and all the Earth are. We will extol you, our God and king and bless your name forever and ever. Every day, we will bless you and praise your name forever and ever. Great are you, Lord, and greatly to be praised. Your greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall commend your works to another and shall declare your mighty acts. On the glorious splendor of your majesty and on your wondrous works, we will meditate. They will speak of the might of your awesome deeds and we will declare your greatness. We adore you, Lord. Amen.

Father God, we come to you confessing our weaknesses and our reliance on your strength. We thank you for carrying us, and we admit that there are times we go in our own strength. We admit that times we go in our own knowledge and we admit that times we don’t seek you as we should. We admit times that we lean on our own understanding and not on your understanding, knowledge, and thinking.

We confess that sometimes we let frustration, impatience, unkindness, faithlessness, hostility, and every other thing that’s not of you cloud our minds and our judgment. We admit at times we do not effectively show your light to others and, sometimes, not at all or even to ourselves. It is so easy to get caught up in the ways of this world and in our flesh that we don’t always seek you or submit to you the way that we know we should.

We come to you now for forgiveness for these sins and thank you for that forgiveness. 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, he is fable and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” We know that your word will not return void. We know that you do not lie. We seek your forgiveness and to be transformed by the renewal of our minds as we are led by your Holy Spirit.

We know that we cannot do anything in our own strength and apart from you, we bear nothing and no good fruit. We confess that we are reliant on your strength, your grace, your mercy, your peace and your love as you help us to do what and be who you have called us to be and walk in your purpose for our lives.

We confess that at times, we don’t always admit our wrongs, God, but we thank you that you are showing us, we confess that we need you at every step and to not lean on ourselves or even on others or the ways and things of this world. We confess that we have a lot of growth to do, God. As much as we have grown and you have grown us, we confess that there’s still more work to do that we need you to do that to be a guiding light to others to show you because that’s the purpose of you sitting us here, to spread the gospel and show your light to others. We thank you for helping us with that right now in the Jesus’ mighty name, I pray and I thank you for this. Amen.

Give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good. Give thanks unto the God of Gods. Give thanks to the Lord for his mercy endured forever. Faithful Father, thank you that you are faithful to fulfill all of your promises. Thank you, Lord, for we are teachers. As teachers, we thank you for the power to educate, inspire, challenge, comfort, reassure, and encourage.

Lord, we thank you for the enormous influence that you have given us to enlighten the hearts and minds of our students. God, we thank you that through our students we have the power to change the world. Thank you for entrusting us with the responsibility and the opportunity to teach. Lord, thank you for teachers who use their gift of teaching to teach with their whole hearts. Thank you for giving them a spirit of grace, understanding, and compassion.

After the chaos of sin in the garden, oh God, you restored spiritual order to the lives of those who accept you as Lord and Savior. Oh, Lord, thank you for that. Thank you for bringing order out of chaos. Thank you for bringing us peace. Lord, we’re praying for peace and order in our classrooms and our hallways and in our restrooms.

The teachers would be organized making the best use of their space, that nothing is wasted, cluttered or distracting for students. Lord, we pray for proper management of time by teachers, that their grading and assignments and classroom procedures and completed in a timely manner so that they model for their students’ excellence.

Lord, we know that discipline is critical for wisdom. We pray for discernment for teachers as they incorporate discipline into their classroom management. Lord, you discipline the ones you love and chastise every son whom you receive. Give this same ability to lovingly correct students by teachers, especially new teachers who may be struggling, Lord God. Give them this special wisdom.

Father, we lift up to you teachers who have been injured or abused physically or verbally by students. Lord, provide them with the support they need to help students. Always, Lord God, our provider, remind these teachers that you are the great counselor. Before anyone else, Lord, help them to seek you. You tell us to seek you first in your righteousness and all these things will be given.

Lord God, provide for struggling, frustrated teachers. Jesus, we ask you to give wisdom to teachers so that they are guiding children away from sin and help teachers do this justly in love without anger and with self-control. Lord, we pray for the lunchrooms. We pray that the food is prepared by lunchroom workers with love, Lord, and compassion as if they’re preparing for their own families.

Lord, we pray that conversations in the lunchroom be filled with joy and encouragement as friends show love for one another, Lord, with hospitality.

Lord, we pray for students who are lonely, ostracized or feel left out. Lord, send other Christian students to come by them. Walk with them, eat with them Lord, and show them your love, Lord. Lord, we pray for restrooms. We pray that dignity abound in these spaces. Lord, many times children run to a restroom just to be alone or to get away from the classroom, Lord.

Lord, we ask you to be a special presence in those places. Holy Spirit, breathe into restrooms, Lord, for teachers and for students, Lord God.

Help them to do their work, Lord, not as serving the school or the students, but because they’re serving you Lord, God. We ask that these spaces, Lord, are spaces of peace and of order, not of chaos.
