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. And Lord, I pray 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. 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. I pray I can just be still and know that you are God. Thank You for being my Saviour. In Jesus' name I pray,
