Teacher's Prayer

    I just want to share this inspiring prayer for teachers. There are a lot of prayers in the web but I originally read this prayer at the back of my lesson plan. Let me just share this to you. I made a poster of it so that you can post it in your classroom or table.

Teacher's Prayer

I want to teach my students how
To live this life on Earth.
To face it's struggles and it's strife
And to improve their worth.
Not just the lesson in a book
Or how the rivers flow, But how to choose the proper path
Wherever they may go.
To understand eternal truth
And know the right from wrong,
And gather all the beauty of
A flower and a song.
For if I help the world to grow
In wisdom and in grace,
Then I shall feel that I have won
And I have filled my place.
And so I ask your guidance, God,
That I may do my part.
For character and confidence
And happiness of heart.
-James J. Metcalf
