As we begin to truly understand and believe in our Jehovah God, we develop a reverential trust in the fullness of who He is, trusting that He is the Sovereign One, the One of whom there is none greater, and therefore to be obeyed and worshiped — what the Bible refers to as “the fear of the Lord” (Ps. 111:10). Such a healthy, reverential awe and trust leads to great benefits and blessings. Therein lies the wisdom, protection, and help we need in life.
Let’s pray that Bible teachers themselves more and more develop this kind of view of God and pass it on by word and example to their students.
Pray for Growth in the Fear of the Lord, Jehovah.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. (Ps. 111:10)
You who fear him, trust in the LORD – he is their help and shield. (Ps. 115:11)
- Pray for the hearts of teachers to love and fear the LORD more completely (Deut. 6:5-7).
- Pray that teachers present to students a Most High God whose name is the LORD … Jehovah (Ps. 83:18).
- Pray that the LORD is revered in all that is done in the classroom setting.
- Pray that teachers guide students in loving, worshiping, and revering the LORD, Jehovah.
