Prayer for Teachers: Lord God your spirit of wisdom fills the earth and teaches us Your ways. / Look upon all teachers entering the classroom this year. / May they strive to share their knowledge with gentle patience and always try to bring truth to eager minds. / Grant that they may follow Jesus who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. / We remember those teachers in our own life who had a positive influence on us. / We pray for those who helped shape our hearts and minds. / God bless all teachers: Those who teach in schools, those involved in religious education programmes and those whose “classroom” is the family kitchen table. / May the Holy Spirit guide them and may God the father bless them.
