We come to you today and give thanks for all our teachers.
Thank you for the way in which they give of themselves each day in the classroom,
serving and instructing the next generation of this land.
We thank you for them all now.
Fill their hearts with courage, strength and wisdom by your mighty Spirit.
Fill them with your peace, so that when stress and anxiety comes it would not overwhelm them.
Fill them with your joy.
We ask this in Jesus' name.
