Lord of Hosts, you are the Holy One. The rote of the seas speaks your name. You are the way maker. There is no one like you. I lift up the teachers to place them on your mercy seat for your favor and blessing. Open the windows to freshen the air around them. Bring new ideas and ways to enlighten their students. Remove burdens of repetition and boredom. Shine your light of creativity onto their lessons that point to Jesus. Make a way in their day where there seems to be none. Smooth the path before them. Increase their territory for your glory and honor. Send appreciation their way. Make them know you stand with them inside and outside the classroom. Make a new thing in their methods, and let it flow. Thank you for every one of the teachers in my life, Father. Thank you for their dedication. Thank you for their inspiration. Thank you for their faith. I pray in the name and authority of Jesus, the greatest of teachers, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:19 ESV)
