Pray for educators.

Lord, thank you for the women and men that have chosen to teach as their vocation. You have gifted them with qualities of intellect, wisdom, creativity, and compassion. We ask you, Lord to guide these teachers as they discern the best ways to support their students during this new way of distance and online learning. Equip them with new ways of creativity to engage and empower both the students and their parents for successful learning. As so many are feeling overwhelmed, stressed, anxious and uncertain, we ask you to provide teachers with extra patience, peace, grace, and positivity.

We also turn our attention today to the parents who have now had to become academic educators at home, in addition to juggling other important responsibilities. Lord, help them to maintain structure and a sense of peace in their homes. As both parents and students struggle to engage academically, we ask that you provide endurance and flexibility. Lord, provide for the families that do not have the proper tools to excel as others do. We lift our hearts and minds to you today and ask for unity between teachers, parents and students.

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. -Romans 15:4-6
 (NIV)

Pray for people at higher risk of developing the disease.

Dear Lord, we lift to You our concern for people who are more likely than others to become severely ill from COVID-19 — the elderly and people with chronic health conditions. Protect them from harm and be their comfort in this time of uncertainty and, for many, preventive isolation from loved ones.

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.—1 Peter 5:7 (NIV)

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7

Pray for educators and students (including colleges and universities)

God we pray for students during this time who are away from their routines and their lives at school. We pray that they continue to have positive connections with their friends and others from school. We pray for their work at home, that you help them be productive and give them confidence that they can do their work well.

God we also pray for the teachers while they are away from their students. You know how much the teachers care and love for their students and want them to succeed. In this time of online learning, we pray that the time spent with their students online is life-giving and can be a moment where the students see that their teachers are there for them.

The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace. Psalm 29:11 (NIV)
