A Teacher’s Prayer
O God I thank you for making me a teacher and
I shall seek your truth in my profession by
sharing your wisdom to all those who are
entrusted to my care.
I will instruct them to live your values and to
have a sense of euriosity to discover what is
true and what is evil in us. Impart on me your
Grace to teach my students how to choose the
right from wrong and to live and learn each day
something beautiful about you.
I wish with the your Grace my students may one
day be someone who will stand for your Truth
that we are ONE and make this world a better
place to live in.
