A year ago we approached praying for Bible teachers during the month of April that they would have a sense of appreciation because of the encouragement it brings. This April we’ll look at it from the leaders’ perspective. Teachers will only be encouraged if they sense the expressions of appreciation to be genuine. We, as leaders, must therefore truly value our teachers. When we do, we’ll not only express appreciation to teachers but also thankfulness to God as we pray for them.
Pray You’re Genuinely Thankful for Your Bible Teachers
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy… (Phil. 1:3-6)
Before end of April, take time to pray for yourself and other leaders who overseas your teachers. Here are some suggestions from the Praying for Bible Teachers Throughout the Year Guide.
- Pray that leaders acknowledge the unique contribution of each individual teacher.
- Pray with thanksgiving for the Bible teachers God has provided.
- Pray that leaders genuinely extend support and appreciation to teachers.
