2020 has been a year like no other. I am hearing a lot of people saying, “I can’t wait for that ball to drop in Time’s Square to bring 2021.” I have no idea if 2021 will be better than 2020 or not and honestly, I am not worried about it either.
The 2020-2021 school year also promises to be a school year unlike any other. Students in classrooms, students at home over the internet. The Texas Education Agency is requiring that both classroom and internet options be available to students. That makes things doubly hard for teachers. They need our help.
The help I am talking about will cost you a few minutes of time, but I am also convinced it might be the best investment you make all year.
First of all, I am going to post prayers for teachers on here mid-week. It is something you can print and give to teachers or just pray it with me throughout the day on Wednesday,, but all week.
Second, I am going to blow the dust off something that I started back when just about all of us got sent home, a special nightly prayer time. The time will be different this time around and so with the focus. Though I still pray that scientists will find a way to isolate the virus or find effective treatment etc. Each Wednesday at 6:00 P.M. on the Perritte Memorial Facebook page.
These prayer times won’t last long but all over the country our teachers need our help. This is one of the things I am working on. We need to be about prayer. I hope you will join me.
Here is my midweek prayer for teachers.
With humble hearts we come before you thankful for the teachers, administrators, staff and students here at Nettie Marshall. We lift each of them up to you asking your blessings on them for a great school year.
We are blessed Lord for the ways in which all the educators here devote themselves to the work in the classrooms, the hallways, all the common areas and this year with students at home.
We pray that you will give each of these educators the insight to do the best job possible for the benefit and education of these students.
Fill them with the courage to do what is right under circumstances that are often difficult. Fill them with wisdom for good judgement, guiding and helping the students along the way.
Help them in every area of their lives so they may have a year with less stress and more peace, peace of mind, the peace that passes understanding.
Fill them too with great joy. Theirs is a noble calling. They do the work out of love for students. Hep them maintain the levels of love and joy they have this day that they might maintain the passion for education and impacting student lives.
Lord God, we thank you for these that faithfully serve the educational needs of our community. Without their dedication, our students and our community would fall short. Bless them in their work Father.
We pray all these things in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
In search of the genuine,
