Today, we shift our focus from our children to their teachers. If you have more than one child enrolled in school and/or if your children are in the upper grades, you probably have way more than a few teachers to pray for. You can pray for each teacher intentionally by name each day, or you can hang on to these and pray for a single teacher each day until you have rotated through each educator your child has this year.
Just as our children are exposed to illness and the possibility of physical harm each day at school, so too are the teachers who spend their days in the classroom. Today, we pray for our children's teachers, asking that their immune systems would fight off viruses and any other ailments they are exposed to, and we ask that God's hand would protect them from accidental or intentional harm from others.

We might pray something like this:
Our Father, thank you for the amazing gift of teachers. Thank you for each educator who will be leading my children in learning this year. Father, please put your protective and healing Hand on each teacher today. Keep them safe from illness and harm. Thank you for the way you love all of your children. In the loving name of Jesus, I ask these things. Amen.
