Prayer Gathering
Throughout the month of September we will be gathering to pray for Woodland Park Academy. This morning let us focus our prayers upon the teachers in the school. We want to pray especially that those teachers will be able to discover ways to effectively share the Gospel in their school.

Praying for Woodland Park Teachers
Adapted from NAMB “Four Ways to Display the Gospel as a Public School Teacher”

“Maybe you’re not a teacher or you have little to no interaction with your local public school. Regardless, pray for teachers. As you drive by a school, pray for the believers there. No matter the type of community you live in, there are Christ-followers in the public school. We need your prayers and encouragement every day, especially in this confusing culture. We can’t do any of these things on our own. It’s only by God’s grace and power that we can know and live for Him.”

1. Pray for Christian teachers to be humble.
“I know many teachers who have been in situations where they were treated unfairly. Some said they were being targeted because of their faith. Even so, we can’t see what is in another person’s heart. Whoever this may come from — a co-worker, student, or parent — the best way we can demonstrate Christ’s grace is by loving them.”

2. Pray for Christian teachers to be in awe of God as they teach.
“If you’re like me, you enjoy the subject you teach. Whatever the content, God’s glory is displayed in immense ways through each discipline — whether it’s being in awe of God through His creation, the order in which He has created all things, the diversity and complexity of languages, how He has displayed His glory through history, or the beauty in the diversity of all peoples. As teachers, we have the amazing privilege of being in awe of His magnificence every day.”

3. Pray for Christian teachers to discover and minister with their Christian colleagues.
“We should find other believers in our schools that we can pray with and encourage. Our biggest ministry might be to those believing co-workers. They may need to be pointed to the cross and reminded of God’s faithfulness. Or perhaps they need to be reminded of their true purpose as a teacher: to display the glory of God by serving the students and families in your community.”

4. Pray for Christian teachers to be building relationships.
“Relationships are one of the best things about being a teacher. Teachers can change their students’ lives! You never know how loving and caring for your students could impact them, even “the least of these” or those who resist you. We have the ability to demonstrate the gospel when we treat every one of our students with dignity and respect.”
