9 Powerful Prayers for Teachers

In this article, we will look at some prayers for teachers. These prayers can be used in a group setting or during your devotional time.

As a Christian, it is important to pray for those in authority over us. Praying for our teachers is a way of doing just that! Teachers have one of the most important jobs in our society- shaping the minds and hearts of our children. It is crucial that we pray for them to have God’s grace, protection, wisdom, and favor. Especially because what is happening in our culture. We need God to raise up Godly teachers who will teach truth, share God’s love, and be an example to our children.

But before we start I want to say that if you know the teacher then please bring up specifics when you pray. This can be as simple as using their name, or more complex for example you know they have a health condition. Whatever the case always be sensitive to the Holy Spirit as you pray and let Him guide you. These are just written prayers, the Lord longs for your words as well.

Prayers for Teachers

“The duties of a teacher are neither few nor small, but they elevate the mind and give energy to the character.”

Dorothea Dix

Prayer for Teachers to Have Grace

Heavenly Father, I thank You for teachers. I know that teaching is a noble profession and one that is vital to the future of our society and world. I ask that You would give all teachers grace during this season. The grace to love their students, even when it’s not easy.

Grace to uphold truth, when culture says otherwise. Grace to correct in love. Grace to be an example of Your righteousness. Fill them with Your Spirit we pray, and may the fruit of the Spirit be evident in their lives- love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. In the might name of Jesus’ name. Amen

Prayer of Protection for My Teacher

Lord Jesus, I ask for Your protection over our teacher. I live in a fallen world and there is so much darkness that wants to destroy what is good. I ask that You would place a hedge of protection around our teacher this week. That You would give them wisdom to know how to handle any crisis that would arise. That You would be their strength when they are weary. And that You would give them peace that surpasses all understanding. I also ask that You would protect their minds from lies and deception. That they will have clarity to see Your truth in every situation. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that You would use our teachers to bring a godly impact in the lives of their students. That the students would see Christ in them and be drawn to Him because of it.

If they don’t know then I ask that You would save them Lord. Let them come to know the saving grace of your son, Jesus. And for those who do know you, I pray that they would be bold in sharing their faith and always quick to point others to Christ. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
