The Praying for Bible Teachers for Bible Teachers Throughout the Year resource encourages us to use the M in March to pray teachers gain a Mastery of Bible teaching skills. But, what’s going to motivate them to keep learning and growing in their teaching skills? As in the whole of the Christian life, love will be the greatest motivating factor. At first glance linking love for God with mastering Bible teaching skills might seem a bit odd but think about it. When we love someone we want to give them our best. When we love someone we want to represent them well to others. So, let’s pray to this end.
Pray Bible Teachers Love More So They Teach Better
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. (Mk. 12:30)
- Pray that teachers put all of who they are into loving and serving our Lord.
- Pray that loving God and students always supersedes programs and methodology.
- Pray that love for God and people motivates teachers to improve in their teaching.
The more teachers grow in their love for God, the more they will put all of who they are into their teaching. The more teachers grow in their love for God, the more they will love their students which will affect how they teach.
