In Georgia we are enjoying our last week of summer. It seems crazy that it is coming to an end and our school year is about to start.
As a momma, I get sad and emotional. I wonder if our summer was enough. I question myself and ask, “Could we have done more?” I know school will start and our lazy routines, spontaneous lunches, travel and late nights will come to an end.
I begin to get anxious about what the school year will bring. Are my boys ready for the new challenges and responsibilities? And sometimes I begin to worry about their teachers. Like all parents, I want the best teachers for my kids.
God has laid it on my heart to start praying specifically for all the teachers that will be teaching my boys this year. My worries and anxiety will not help. But I know I can cast my cares on God.
I will be praying that our teachers feel rested coming into the school year. I will be praying for their health and health of their families. I will be praying for supportive parents and administration for our teachers. I will be praying that our teachers have all the resources they need for the year. I will be praying that our teachers are shown the respect they deserve. I will be praying for rest for our teachers. I will be praying for my eyes to be opened to opportunity to help our teachers.
These selfless teachers devote their time, energy, and resources to our children. We know they don’t do it for the money or the fictitious summer break. Teachers have a heart for children and education. They love to see the lightbulbs go off and things start clicking.
Will you join me praying for our teachers?

Our worries and anxieties can’t change anything. But PRAYERS change everything.
