For gaining wisdom and instruction; for understanding words of insight; for receiving instruction in prudent behavior, doing what is right and just and fair; for giving prudence to those who are simple, knowledge and discretion to the young.
God created education with the purpose of multiplication and discipleship. It was intended to transform not just inform. Jesus is revealed as a Rabbi (teacher), Shepherd, and Warrior. Here’s how you can pray for the education sphere.
- Pray for more bold Christians to enter the education sphere.
- Pray for teachers to increase in wisdom with God and favor from their students.
- Pray all teaching be grounded by truth, not opinions. Let the truth dispel the lies, myths, and false doctrines.
- Pray for teachers to be patient and careful.
- Pray for men and women of God to fill positions of authority such as principals, superintendents, and school board members, using their influence for change.
- Pray for good relationships between parents and teachers.
- Pray for parents to train their children in righteousness and fear of the Lord at home.
- Pray that parents would take a stand against a curriculum that promotes evil and immorality.
- Pray for the salvation men and women who are in charge of writing the curriculum our kids learn.
PrayerLord, we thank You for the Holy Spirit who teaches us all things. Thank You that through teaching, You invite us into the process of making disciples. Thank You that as You have brought transformation in our lives, through sound teaching we can do the same. Bless teachers with boldness, strength, and protection as they shape the next generation. In Jesus’ name, amen.
ActionIf you are an educator on any level this is your sphere. (On a side note, parents…you are your child’s first teacher.) Offer help by writing an encouraging note to your teacher, buying a gift or a meal just to show your appreciation. Be active in what your child is learning. If something concerns you, speak up about it. Ask the Lord how He wants you to be involved in your local schools. Attend school board meetings and/or PTA meetings and pray there. Let your voice be heard.
