A teacher’s prayer for her pupils.
Lord, as I go to school every day
To you I always worship and pray
By my side always stay and please guide me
To become the best teacher that I can be.
Give me eyes that see the good in every learner
Hands that always protect, caress and care
And please also give me a lending ear
That listens to their cries as a real mother.
When at times I seemed challenged by their behavior
Enlighten my mind and make me the best counselor
Touch and teach my heart to love them even more
And give them the love and attention that they wish for.
In disciplining them, direct me to give a fair decision
Make me wise in explaining the consequence of their action
Guide me to be concise in giving them the explanation
That I correct them so they will become a better person.
