Almighty and ever-living God, You promise to hear the prayers of Your people who call upon You.  Be present in our schools.  Grant that our teachers treat each student with concern for their well-being and grant that our students respect their teachers; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Almighty God, You strengthen us each day for service to others. According to Your good and gracious will, support with Your mighty hand our faculty and staff. Strengthen them for service to our students and by extension to our community. Bring joy to their work as they instruct their students and create opportunities for learning in their classrooms; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Heavenly Father, bless those families in our schools where the vocation of one or more parents keeps them separated from each other, especially those serving in our armed forces. Guard and protect those whose lives are placed in harm's way and grant them a happy reunion with their loved ones; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Heavenly Father, bless the work of those responsible for the maintenance of our schools.  May they, in their vocation, provide an environment that is conducive to teaching and learning. Grant that we find opportunities to express our appreciation for the service they provide our schools; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Heavenly Father, You bring us safely to each new day of our lives. Bless this day for those in our schools. Remove from them the attitude that this is the same old routine at the beginning of another same old week.  Create in them wonder and excitement at another opportunity to grow in knowledge and wisdom; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the dedicated teachers in our schools who spend so much time outside of the regular school day preparing lesson plans, correcting papers, completing reports and attending the activities of the students they teach. Bless them with understanding and loving families who support their efforts to be the best teachers they can be. May our students see in their teachers a reflection of the love that You have for them; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Lord Jesus, in Your ministry You taught by word and example. Grant Your blessing to the teachers in our schools.  Renew their love for education and give them joy in their vocation. Bless them with the wisdom to use the skills and knowledge which You have given them to the best of their ability. By their example, instill in their students a desire to learn that they may diligently apply themselves to grow in wisdom and knowledge; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
