An Advent Prayer for Teachers
God of patience and love,
be with us in this time of waiting.
Though the pressures mount
and distractions increase,
keep our eyes open to your beauty,
our minds open to your wisdom,
our hands open to do your work.
Help us to gently guide those in our care,
as your star led the Magi,
so we might all journey together
into new worlds,
inspired by your love.
May our schools look forward
to Christ's birth with hope,
that we might prepare for your arrival,
as communities of joy, justice and faith.
We make this prayer through Christ, your Son
