A Teachers Prayer

I believe that each of my students is your child.

I believe that they are a reflection of your love.


I believe that each child possesses special gifts and talents,

that you are entrusting me to help them discover these gifts

and nurture those talents.


I believe that each child is trying to find you,

And that I can be a model of how to look,

How to live, how to pray.


I believe that my job is actually a mission, a ministry;

That you have chosen me in this time and in this place

To be there for these kids.


I believe that there is nothing haphazard about my day,

About my experiences with my students or with their parents.

It is all part of your plan.


I believe that you have chosen me, Lord.

I believe.
