Teacher Lead the Way

28 Lord my God, listen to your servant’s prayer and request, and hear the cry and prayer that your servant prays to you today. 29 Constantly watch over this temple, the place about which you said, “My name will be there,” and listen to the prayer that your servant is praying toward this place. 30 Listen to the request of your servant and your people Israel when they pray toward this place. Listen from your heavenly dwelling place, and when you hear, forgive! (1 Kings 8:28-30, Common English Bible).


I know I bounce around some in my ideas for the blog. And, while I am committed to the idea of finding beauty, joy, and kindness in the world, I am also committed to the ongoing need for prayer in education for students, faculties and staff. Today’s post is a prayer post.


Let’s Pray

Teach them subtraction, teach them to add
Teach them the value of pen and pad
Go and teach them something new today.
Teacher, today we ask please, lead the way.

Lord, before you we stand and pray
Lord for our teachers, give them great days.
Lord for our kids, and may knowledge stay
Teacher we ask you please lead the way

Teach art, paint, clay, pastels, wonders new,
Pushing forward to the spot where they grew
Their growth will go on through study and play
Teacher we ask you please lead the way

Lord, before you we stand and pray
Lord for our teachers, give them great days.
Lord for our kids, and may knowledge stay
Teacher we ask you please lead the way

History will teach them don’t repeat the past
Science brings questions they surely will ask
They ask about earth and rocks and clay,
Teacher we ask you, please lead the way.

Lord, before you we stand and pray
Lord for our teachers, give them great days.
Lord for our kids, and may knowledge stay
Teacher we ask you please lead the way

How can our teachers know that we care
We came to help, we are going nowhere
Giving our children a fresh start each day,
Teacher we ask you please lead the way.

Lord, before you we stand and pray
Lord for our teachers, give them great days.
Lord for our kids, and may knowledge stay
Teacher we ask you please lead the way

Teacher we hold your hand while we pray.
Teacher we ask that God show you the way.
May God walk with you through all your days
Teacher let’s stop and let God lead the way.

Lord, we stand with our teachers and pray.
Lord, please give them only great days.
Lord grant their learning may never wane
Lord we ask this in Jesus’ name.

Lord, we stand with our teachers and pray.
Lord, please give them only great days.
Lord grant their learning may never wane
Lord we ask this in Jesus’ name.

Lord grant their learning may never wane
Lord we ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.


Be blessed.

Seeking the Genuine,
Keith
