And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:8, NKJV
Our students are the reason we go to work each day. We truly want to see them excel in every part of their lives. And as educators, one of the most genuine ways we can care for our students is to pray for them! We can pray for their well-being, physical and mental health, home lives, and progress in academics. It will make a tremendous difference in their lives!
If you haven’t been in the habit of praying for your students, you can simply ask God for grace. He will fill your heart with so much love and desire to pray for your students!
Heavenly Father, thank you for all of my students. I lift them up to You. I apply Your powerful blood over their lives. I pray that they always seek You for direction. Please give them strong discernment. I bind the enemy’s plan for their lives. I decree and declare that they walk in the destiny You’ve designed for them. In Jesus’s name, I pray. Amen.

Let’s be praying for our students, teachers! Don’t forget about Christian Educators’ Steps of Prayer movement. Every day in September, we want you to be intentional to pray as you walk around your school. At the end of the school day, report your steps/distance to the webpage linked above and let’s see how God transforms our “Steps of Prayer” into testimonies of His faithfulness!
