Prayer for Teachers


Korio John, teacher for class 2 at Sengelel Primary School in West Pokot County, Kenya, practices English vocabulary with a group of youngsters.

“We aim to develop the whole child through literacy, numeracy, health, and moral education,” says Korio, who also teaches Bible studies to 8th graders. Teachers, who spend more time every day with their students than possibly anyone else, have enormous influence over children’s precious young minds. 

Ask God to inspire teachers to be the best role models — always speaking the truth in love to the children who look up to them.

Holy Spirit, be with teachers everywhere. Put Your righteousness in their hearts and Your words on their lips to share with the children in their daily care. May classrooms not only fill students with knowledge, but also wisdom, discernment, and integrity.

“Buy the truth and do not sell it — wisdom, instruction and insight as well.” —Proverbs 23:23 (NIV)
