Let us put ourselves in the Holy Presence of God as we say, In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Loving Father, thank you for giving us another day to see and appreciate the true meaning of the gift of life that you have given us.
Thank you for all the blessings that you bestowed upon us, for walking with us every day and for being with us in each moment.
Thank you for giving a noble job so we can provide the needs of our family.
Thank you for calling us in the teaching profession to be the stewards of your most precious Creation.
Thank you also for touching the hearts and enlightening the minds of our department heads to give us this Mid-year In-Service Training where we could come together as a group of educators who share a common goal, and where we could update ourselves to meet out the new emerging and developing generation.
As we are gathered here today for the 4th day of our In-service training, we humbly ask you to bless each one of us with a growth mindset and wisdom.
Please hold our speakers under your hand of guidance and care as they will be sharing their knowledge and expertise to us to help us acquire new understanding and help us improve our capacity to provide quality teaching and learning in our classroom.
And please guide us throughout the training. Help us to be open-minded. Give us wisdom to understand the discussion of our speakers.
Help us to listen to others and treat them with respect.
And give us a big, loving, and respectful heart so that when we go back to our respective classrooms, we will humbly bring with us all the new knowledge that we will learn and apply these to our children not just for the purpose of teaching them but with the pure intention of teaching them with a heart.
All these we pray, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
