Each day, teachers face a myriad decisions to be made. Lesson plans, parent communication, classroom dynamics, contributions to committees, extracurricular commitments - the list is unending. For each and every decision, a multitude of factors must be considered, but decisions often have to be made in an instant.
Today, we pray for our children's teachers, that they might be filled with wisdom. We ask that they would be prepared to think on their feet, and that each choice would be made from a place of confidence and conviction with a strong sense of ethics and devotion to the success of each of their students.

We might pray something like this:
Our Father, how comforting to know that all wisdom comes from you, and that as James wrote to the early church, when we ask for wisdom, You give freely and without judgement. Today, Lord, I ask on behalf of each of my children's teachers for wisdom. I pray that you would equip them with all that they need to make the best possible choice in each moment of decision they face today. Thank you for the way you love all of Your children. In the most wise name of Jesus, I ask these things. Amen.
