Teachers who view God as the One who truly meets needs, view themselves as conduits through whom His Spirit works. They are not the Source for change and growth in their students’ live but rather God. Consequently, they depend on God to work both in and through them.
for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. (Phil. 2:13)
- Pray that teachers see themselves as conduits of God’s grace and truth.
- Pray that teachers understand the role of the Holy Spirit in helping students understand truth.
- Pray that teachers depend on God as the real force behind changed lives (1 Cor. 3:6-7).
The Praying for Bible Teachers Throughout the Year resource contains prayer guides for each month. The theme for the month begins with the letter of that month to make it easier to remember how to pray that month even without the guide in hand. For example, the D in December can stand for Dependence on God, which is what teachers need to be effective.
