Thanksgiving prayer for teachers

Teachers make a lasting difference for generations to come. Most likely, you’re able to look back with fondness for a particular teacher who encouraged you to dream big or helped you hone a specific skill. Perhaps your favorite teacher gently supported you as you struggled to grasp a certain concept and then cheered wildly for you when it finally ‘clicked.’

In many ways, teachers are a bright light, a friendly face, and a gentle guide. Day in and day out, they teach and mold the hearts and minds of our loved ones. The very least we can do is offer our support, respect, and prayers that they would remain strong in the Lord.

As we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week (May 8 – 12), let’s take a moment to lift up our kids’ teachers, grandchild’s teacher, our algebra-teaching sister, or even the neighbor next door who coaches the high school soccer team. Will you bow your head and join me in prayer?

A Prayer for Teachers

Dear God,

Grant our teachers an abundance of Your wisdom. Prepare their hearts to welcome and love our loved ones, and may we make sure to show them love and respect in return. Give them grace as they help students who aren’t thriving, courage to say what needs to be said, tools and knowledge on how and when to speak love, and strength when they feel weak. When they feel unseen, remind them that no moment goes unnoticed. They are shaping the future in one million small – yet incredibly important – ways every day. We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the gift of learning they share with our children. Bless them, Lord, and may they see even just a glimpse of how their faithfulness will forever impact generations to come.Amen.

A Teacher’s Prayer

Help me to be a fine teacher, to keep peace in the classroom, peace between my students and myself, to be kind and gentle to each and every one of my students. Help me to be merciful to my students, to balance mercy and discipline in the right measure for each student, to give genuine praise as much as possible, to give constructive criticism in a manner that is palatable to my students. Help me to remain conscientious enough to keep my lessons always interesting, to recognize what motivates each of my students, to accept my students’ limitations and not hold it against them. Help me not to judge my students too harshly, to be fair to all, to be a good role model, but most of all Lord help me to show your love to all of my students.

Amen. (written by Olga de Juana)

If you are a teacher, hold onto 1 Corinthians 15:58 and James 1:5.

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the Lord’s work, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:58 CSB

Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God—who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly—and it will be given to him. James 1:5 CSB

If you are a student, make it your aim to never lose sight of Proverbs 4:13.

Hold on to instruction; don’t let go. Guard it, for it is your life. Proverbs 4:13 CSB

Let your teachers know how much they mean to you this Thanksgiving. Read on to know interesting Thanksgiving teacher poems.

Thanksgiving traditionally was a day to thank the Almighty for blessing people with a bountiful harvest. With time, Thanksgiving traditions evolved to their present state, of being an occasion when we express our gratitude to all who have been of help to us in anyway. Needless to say, God tops the list. Thanksgiving involves, besides prayers and feast, a host of other activities. It is a day when we engage ourselves in thanking all – family, teachers, friends, and so on – who have stood for us in times of need. Teachers, who play a vital role in shaping our future by guiding us at every step, come to occupy a special place in our hearts. Teachers, by imparting us the wealth knowledge and helping us become better beings, deserve to be thanked every moment in our lives. Thanksgiving poems for teachers are a special category of Thanksgiving poetry, dedicated to expressing our heartfelt thankfulness to our teachers. They are a sweet way to letting our teachers know how much their invaluable contribution to our lives mean to us. They can either be read to the teacher or simply presented in written form on a paper. Alternatively, a sweet Thanksgiving poem can also be written on a Thanksgiving card before presenting it to your teacher. Read on for some thoughtful Thanksgiving poems for teachers.

Thank You Teacher Thank you (your teacher’s name) for all you’ve done

For teaching all I need to know

I’ll all remember you most fondly

No matter where I go.

Secret Gratitude For you, I don’t know why

But you, make it all clear

And you, wrap it up perfectly

For you, I’ll do my best

You never taught me how to win,

But to be justified

You never told me what to do,

You just guided me through it

The paths were all laid,

But you let me run so free

You never carried me to the grass,

You let me swim the seas

For you, is why I am here today

But you, are half the reason

And you, let me make mistakes

So for you, I learn from the

A Sweet Poem Say Thank you Teacher Now that I am leaving

I can tell you how I feel;

My heartfelt appreciation

Is deeply felt and real.

You’re a really great teacher

That’s what we all say

And as a Thank You for all your help

I’m giving you an A

On second thoughts that’s not enough

For helping all of us.

So from me you get this THANK YOU,

As well as this A PLUS

No, that’s not enough either

For the teacher that you are

You get this Thank You, an A+

As well as this GOLD STAR

– Jon Bratton

Because of You A teacher is a person

Who helps you every day.

Who scolds you when you’re bad

And helps you find your way.

Thanks for what you did for me,

for teaching me something new.

For I would not be here today

If it hadn’t been for you.

– Sharon Hendricks

Hearts You Reach Hearts you reach

When you teach.

In many ways,

For endless days,

You’re ever giving.

It’s your living,

that stands out,

with such clout.

Hearts you reach

When you teach.

You climb the hill,

Inspire, instill,

Us the same,

Keep our aim.

You open minds

Each one finds,

Their path to see,

true destiny.

Hearts you reach

When you teach.

– Paul Berchtold
