Test prayer 9

Dear Christian educators,

Today is a day of encouragement. Look around at your colleagues with an eye for someone who is really burdened by this testing period and the end of the year. Do something nice for them. It could just be a little time invested to hear how their day is going, a smile and a pat on the back for a great effort or even a little note. We all need that kind of attention, don't we? Be an encourager with no expectation of getting it back and look to your incredible blessings that you have been given because you are an educator. Why not mention to someone today a particular blessing? In this way you reflect on the good and give praise to God.  Dan. 4:2 - It is my pleasure to tell you about the miraculous signs and wonders that the Most High God has performed for me.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You Lord for creating us to be teachers. Thank You for planting that seed of care and love for children. Help us to remember to love them when they are unlovable. It's so impossible on our own, but with You all things are possible. Lord, thank You for helping us through this testing period and change of routine. Help us to look for the silver lining in the cloud that hangs over us and find ways we can tell others about the wonderful things You have performed in our lives. Please be present today, Lord and help us to be present for our students and not worrying about what happens next. You are the Mighty God Who made heaven and earth and fashioned us with Your own hands. We love you so much and thank You for Your mercy and grace. Amen.

As always, I am
Prayerfully dependent
