Lord Jesus, giver of all wisdom, greatest of all Teachers, look upon our teachers with love.
Grant them the resolve to nurture our eager minds and to never give up on those who fall behind.
Bless their hearts, for they rejoice when we succeed and encourage us when we fall.
Endow them with gentle patience, for the path of learning is never easy.
Kindle a spirit of passion in them; it is the flame that ignites the love of learning in us.
Help them to see the potential in every student; their belief in us means much more than the grade we make.
Instil in them a commitment to keep on learning; it shows us never to fear new knowledge and experiences.
Inspire them to touch the future; they influence how big a dream we dream for ourselves.
Bless our teachers of the past, for their work endures to this day.
Lord Jesus, let the light of your example shine upon all teachers, to encourage us with their words, to love us with their minds and to share with their hearts. Amen.
