Teachers’ Prayer For Spring Break And Preparation For End Of Year Tests

Teachers Who Pray | Spring Break


In his humanity, Christ did not want to run the race the Father had set for Him. In the Garden of Gethsemane, he calls outright to God to take the task of dying on the cross away from Him. But the fact that Christ got off His knees and accepted His race shows us that supernatural faith wins, despite moments of human weakness. It is true that Christ’s humanness did not want to finish His race, but it is also true that His divine Spirit transcended his human anguish.


Christ finished the race because:

–          His life was not about Him

–          With a depth of patience and servitude that honored God in the midst of His struggle

–          With discipline and commitment

–          He knew, in faith, that there was great joy waiting at the finish line

–          He knew that living sinlessly, dying unjustly, and resurrecting to life with all power would create a path for mankind to once again commune with God.


Christ is the ultimate role model for staying the course to victory! Please join Teachers Who Pray as we continue to pray intentional prayers for teachers. Using the Adoration Confession Thanksgiving Supplication (ACTS) Prayer Model, this week’s supplication prayer will focus on spring break and preparation for end of year tests.

Teachers’ Prayer For Spring Break And Preparation For End Of Year Tests

Prayer Of Adoration

Magnify the Lord with me. Let us exalt his name together. Yours Oh Lord is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours O Lord, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is overall. For the Lord God is a son and shield. The Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does God withhold from those who walk uprightly. We adore you because you are great and greatly to be prayed. All we have to do is look around to see your greatness displayed.

Creation shows us your wonderful work, your power, and your beauty in all things. Romans 11:36 reminds us of this. “For everything comes from God and exists by God’s power and is intended for God’s glory. All glory to God forever.” When we slow down from the busyness of our teaching duties and tasks we notice you more God. We hear you in the bird singing and sense your presence in the gentle wind. We get a glimpse of your goodness and the miracle of new life. The morning sunrise reminds us of your mercies that begin fresh every morning.

It is so easy to get overwhelmed with our day-to-day teaching activities and become fearful of the challenges of teaching in the 21st century classroom, but we don't have to fear anything as children of God. Click To Tweet

As we go about teaching our students, we will admire how great you are by palsy to enjoy what you have created. God has spoken plainly and we have heard it many times. Power oh God belongs to you. The disciples were amazed with Jesus speaking peace to the storm. Wondering what kind of man is this that could calm a raging storm. We adore you because you are the only one powerful enough to quiet the storms in our lives and the lives of our students. It is so easy to get overwhelmed with our day-to-day teaching activities and become fearful of the challenges of teaching in a 21st-century classroom.

We don’t have to fear anything as children of God. All power belongs to you. Thank you, Lord, for your mighty power at work in our lives and our students’ lives and the parents’ lives in the lives of all of the school staff right now Lord in Jesus’ name. Thank you also for your Holy Spirit who provides power within us as we carry out our teaching lessons to do the things you’ve called us to do. We will never forget where our source of teaching power comes from. Praise God’s glorious name forever. Let the whole earth be filled with God’s glory. Holy God, our Glory belongs to you.

We’ve come to you in prayer to glorify your name not because of what you do, but because of who you are. We adore you. Your unconditional love for us stretches to the highest mountain peaks and reaches to the depths of the seas. It is beyond anything we can phantom. Your love never ends and great is your faithfulness. You deserve all the glory, honor, and praise we can offer. Forgive us for any prideful thoughts that would bring glory upon ourselves instead of relying on our own abilities. We choose to praise you and acknowledge that you have everything working for our good.

We give glory to you and the name of your son Jesus. Let all that we are praise the Lord, our Lord, our God how great you are. You are rolled with honor and majesty. Dear Lord, we bow in reverence. You are the king of kings and the Lord of Lords. You have dominion over everything in the heavens and on earth yet you still care about even the smallest detail of our Lives. That’s why we want to rejoice in you every day. You are worthy. Omnipotent God because of your mercy and grace, you sent your son Jesus as a sacrifice for our sins.

You demonstrated a love unlike anything this world has to offer. Because of that love, we will get to spend eternity with you. Lord thank you for this ultimate gif. Without you, we would have no hope. We love you with all our hearts, souls, and minds. Thank you for your faithfulness that endures forever. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Prayer Of Confessions

Prayer to forgiveness. We know Lord God that in sacrificing your only begotten son through his willing death and resurrection. We have new life and we know gracious God that this redemption was given to us not because of anything that we have done or will do, but only because of your love for us. We know that whoever believes in you is not condemned but has eternal life. Jesus, because we know you as our savior, our redeemer, the one who bought us with your very life we confess our sins to you in your presence now.

Hear Father God our hearts as we silently repent of all the things we have done. All the things we have left undone, and all the things that grieve your perfect heart lord God. We confess them silently now. Lord forgive us for not even remembering all the ways we have sinned and fallen short each and every hour of every single day. Father, forgive us for trying to teach our students in our own power and not asking you for help. Father forgive us for not submitting to you those areas in our lives where we are trapped and stuck.

Where we have refused to trust in your unmatched power to free us. Father, forgive us for holding on to old sinful ways in our teaching because we are too afraid to change. Too afraid of the cost of doing it your way instead of our own. Jesus Lamb of God, we know that before we even began this prayer you have already forgiven us and cleansed us by the blood you shed for us. Thank you oh, Jesus. You are the Living God. It is in your matchless mighty name. We pray, amen.

Prayer Of Thanksgiving

Prayer of thanksgiving. Dear God. Thank you for your goodness. Thank you for waking us up this morning, Father God, and allowing us to see another day. You have kept us each and every day through each and every night. We thank you for that right now Father. Thank you. Thank you that we can call you Abba Father and you respond. Thank you for seeing us as your sons and daughters. Thank you that you show us in your words how we are to speak, think, and act. We carry ourselves and see ourselves according to your will and your word.

Father God, we praise you because we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Click To Tweet

Father God, we praise you because we are fearfully and wonderfully made. As I learned at church yesterday, you can even use our flaws for our good and your glory. We thank you for choosing us as vessels to live and to carry your word to others and other territories both known and unknown. Father God, we thank you for the school year. Through triumphs and trials both personal and professional, you have kept us from being devoured by the enemy. You alone know our innermost being.

Father God. We thank you that we can call on you and you are always right on time. We thank you for each and every student we have or have had in our classrooms. Yes, even the most difficult one. We thank you for the lessons that you are instilling in us and what you are pruning and growing in us as we teach them. Thank you for conviction so we are not condemned and we can choose to turn away from sin. We thank you to everyone on this line and those that couldn’t make it. We thank you for peace, joy, prosperity, and love being seen and our lives, minds, and hearts as we witness to others about your goodness, love, and who you are and Jesus’ name. Amen.

Prayer Of Supplication

Prayer of supplication. Dear heavenly father, we come to you to make our requests known concerning the upcoming spring break. Although the dates of this break vary from district to district. We pray that as we approach the time of year that we celebrate the dust, burial, and resurrection of our Lord we reflect on your mercy and goodness that you’ve shown us throughout this entire school year. You have brought us through the challenges of starting the year with new students, new routines, and new policies.

You have helped us as we struggled with illnesses in our buildings, difficult weather events, and in some cases various kinds of loss. We approach this time of year with excitement and thanksgiving because it’s a time of renewal. We pray that as we take the time to relax, refresh, and reflect we will make wise decisions and godly choices. We not only pray for that for ourselves, but we pray for our colleagues, our students, and their families. We pray specifically for the locations where historically spring break has been unsafe and dangerous.

We pray that whatever law enforcement and protection that is needed will be deployed and we ask that you would supernaturally intervene. We pray that children and young people who have plans to engage in harmful and dangerous activities will be thwarted and lose interest in those activities. We pray that you protect us, our colleagues, and our students as we travel whether it’s across town to spend the week with Grandma or to take a plane or ship to another country.

We pray for your protection so that there are no accidents or incidents that would harm or injure us, our colleagues, or our students. Finally, Father, we pray for your help as so many of us prepare for the end of your testing. We pray that you help those of us whose evaluations and professional ratings are dependent on student performance so that we will not be anxious about the end-of-school testing. We will remember to pray about our situations.

We pray that we will be filled with Thanksgiving and let our requests be made known to you our heavenly father and by doing this with peace that only you can supply will keep our minds and hearts at ease through your son Christ Jesus. We pray that as we seek your guidance during the end of your testing preparation, we will meditate on your word from Jeremiah 33:3, “Call to me and I will answer you and I will tell you great and mighty things which you do not know.”

Lord, we have faith and believe that you know every one of our students and you know exactly what every one of our students needs to be able to show what they know at the end of the year. We pray like never before that we would be open to listen and hear what and how we need to teach the children. We pray like never before that we will follow your instruction and obey what you tell us and show us concerning each child, each class, and each section. Father, we pray that the end of your testing will go smoothly and we pray that it will not be a source of anxiety or stress for students or staff. We also pray that there will be no testing or violations committed either by students or staff.

In closing, I pray Ephesians 1:18 through 19. “I asked that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened so that you may know the hope of his calling the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints and his incomparably great power for us who believe. Amen.”
