    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,

    pursuing knowledge,

    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

   Pray as you go
   Schools are always busy places        and it can sometimes be hard to        find the time and space to say a        prayer.
