Note: This is a transcription of a video I published in Youtube, “Prayer for Teachers” to celebrate World Teachers Day. Here’s the link to follow.
We praise you as our greatest teacher. You taught as God’s ways so that we may be able to become as children of God, which we are. As we gather here today to ask for Your blessing on all educators on the global celebration of Teachers Day, we pray that we may tackle with all our heart, strength and soul our role as leaders in a global crisis such as the pandemic, among others.
We know that teaching is hard especially in unlearning and relearning, in remolding and re-creating our ways of doing things so that whatever we do in this vocation of ours, we may lead people to a knowledge of the new normal, the world and of God. May we strive to share our knowledge with gentle patience and steady endeavor to bring the truth to eager minds.
Open our ears to listen and learn also from our students; they too have the Holy Spirit in them. May we appreciate, that under your eyes, O Lord, we are also students, so open our minds so we can learn from our colleagues, as we navigate a different world. Enlightened our hearts and minds as we reimagine the future with greater hope and renewed energy. Amen.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
