A TEACHERíS PRAYER

Lord, help me in my teaching your love to demonstrate,
And guide me in my lifeís work, my service consecrate.
Entrust to me more wisdom for tasks I need to do;
Then grant me greater patience and strengthen me anew.

Forgive me for my sins today; make me forgiving, too.
Help me to think before I speak and all my words be true.
Revive enthusiasm like I had when I began.
Renew my dedication to be the best I can.

May all my discipline be fair, my class control be good,
And may my students try to learn, to know the things they should.
Impart to me the knowledge of the right thing to say,
A spirit of discernment to lead my class today.

Empower me with goodness and keep my temper sweet.
May I show only kindness to everyone I meet.
Bless all the students that I teach and guide them, this my prayer.
Then give them happy, useful lives and keep them in Your care.

A really, beautiful prayer! Flows smoothly, makes sense, and says all that needs to be said! Where would we all be without our teachers? God bless them, every one! Well done!

Wonderful poem. I espcially liked "Empower me with goodness and keep my temper sweet." A powerful request.
