Teacher's Prayer

A photo of a schoolhouse.

God grant me
wisdom, creativity, and love

With wisdom,
I may look to the future and see the effect
that my teaching will have on these children,
and thus adapt my methods
to fit the needs of each one.

With creativity,
I can prepare new and interesting projects
that can challenge my students
and expand their minds
to set higher goals and dream loftier dreams.

With love,
I can praise my students for jobs well done
and encourage them to get up
and go on when they fail,
Lord reveal yourself through me.
