A Prayer for the First Day of School {Updated}

Several years ago I found this fabulous prayer online somewhere. 
I have no idea who wrote it {there was no attribution} 
but I absolutely fell in love with it. I truly believe it's the prayer 
a teacher should pray every single day of the school year. 

With school about to start I decided to update it.
Wouldn't it be a fabulous present to give to a teacher as a first day of school gift?

  1. I love this. Thanks so much for sharing and making this for us. I have a prayer group at school and I can't wait to share this with all the teachers at school.I used some of your great quotes in decorating my room and it looks so good!

  2. I love this. I am going to print it and hand it above my desk as a reminder of why I am in the classroom. thanks for sharing!

  3. So precious and there are so many good reminders in here! Thanks for sharing!!

  4. Love it! I'm printing it to hang up on my closet door where I stash my purse and jacket so that I'll see it as I start each day! Thank you!

  5. Thank you so much for sharing this, I will add this to my teacher baskets for my friends.


  6. I love the first day of school prayer. Thank you for sharing :-)

  7. Wow! Thank you for sharing this! As we get so caught up in the busyness of prep, we do need to take time to pray for our new kiddos AND for each of us to be the teacher God created us to be. I confess I have been so busy prepping that my prayer life has been minimal. Thank you for reminding me that it is about so much more than having a cute room!!

  8. Absolutely perfect prayer! Thank you for sharing it:-) I am your newest follower:-) So glad I found you:-)

  9. This is wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing!

  10. This is perfect. I will be printing this!

    As I look (stalk) blogs, I have seen SO many Christian teachers out there. I believe that public school is a mission field. My prayer is that God uses and guides us to do His will. I hope that my kiddos and their parents see Jesus in me!
    Have a GREAT school year!

  11. THANK YOU! I love this! I have printed it out and will be putting it above my desk. I teach at a Christian school, so I have the benefit of being able to share Christ with my kids each day. I am excited to hang this and remind myself what a privilege I have.
