Thank You Lord for the joy of teaching and learning as well as the challenges it offers. Lord I pray that You would guard and guide each of those who have attended my lessons this past term and pray that each one will come to a knowledge of and understanding You – that each one comes to saving faith in Jesus.
Thank You also for school vacations and the opportunity to ‘recharge’ our batteries – and for the precious times of refreshment that school vacations offer, and I pray that You would use this period away from school and its responsibilities, to be a time of refreshment and renewal, not only for my body but also, for my soul and my spirit too.
I pray that this vacation will bring me to be even closer to You – that it will enable me to re-examine my priorities and principles, my purpose and my perspectives in life. I pray that this will be a time when my mind will be refreshed so that I am able to return to the classroom renewed and refreshed and ready to face the challenges of a new term.
I pray this will be a time when I draw ever closer to Jesus, my Saviour, and that this may be a time when I grow in grace and have opportunity to listen intently to Your still small voice and to rest in Your promises – to just be still and to KNOW that you are God.. Thank You for being my Saviour, in Jesus name I pray,
