The Christian Teacher’s Prayer

Just a little something I came up with based on a short Bible verse I discovered a few days ago.

O Lord of Hosts, Knower of All and Father of All Knowing,
Grant me Your grace as I do Your work.
Let me revere You and stand in awe of You as I stand before my pupils.
Let true instruction be in my mouth, and may unrighteousness not be found on my lips;
May I walk with You in peace and uprightness, and may I turn many from iniquity.
May my lips preserve knowledge as I fight Your fight against ignorance, and may I not cause Your sheep to stumble.
O Lord, help us know Your world, know ourselves and through these know You,
That we, Your dear children might not perish for lack of knowledge.
May I be Your messenger to those who seek instruction this day.
I ask this in the illuminating name of your Son, Jesus Christ, the Great Instructor of all the Cosmos,
Amen.

This is partially based on Malachi 2:5-8.
Please give credit where credit is due: to the Bible. Never claim that you wrote this yourself.

  2. Shot in the dark here. I’m searching around the internet for Christian teachers, looking for someone who might have a vision for helping to start a Christian school for poor children in Nepal…..any suggestions?

  3. I’ve replied to your email address, sir. I might be able to refer you to someone who can help.
