Praise God, our Teacher!

“He began teaching them many things.”  Mark 6:24

“Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about Him spread through the whole countryside. He taught in their synagogues, and everyone praised Him.”  Luke 4:14,15

Jesus, we give You thanks and praise for Your heart of instruction. Patience and wisdom flow from You freely as You teach us many things in the power of the Holy Spirit.


Pray for Hearts Eager to Learn

“Let the wise listen and add to their learning and let the discerning get guidance…”  Proverbs 1:5

“Guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long.”  Psalm 25:5.

God, may the adventure of learning be fresh each day for our students and staff. May they listen and add to their learning, both intellectually and spiritually.


Pray for Hearts to Teach Others

“And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others” 2 Timothy 2:2

“…they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Messiah.”  Acts 5:42

May the efforts of classroom teachers be multiplied as students reinforce concepts with each other. May they be eager to patiently instruct their peers, who will in turn teach others. We pray especially for believing students and staff to teach and proclaim the good news.

We pray for the students and staff of Bedford Public Schools and their Superintendent, Dr. Carl Shultz.

“The city will go to the persistent. There is a slow-burn persistence to prayerwalking. Generations of harm are being undone. Seeds of new life are being planted, germinating underneath the surface of everyday life. Prayerwalkers need to be patient because God is patient. He is unfolding, step by step, something glorious for His Son in every community.”       -Steve Hawthorne, author
