The Christian prayer life can sometimes feel stale. It doesn’t mean your faith is weak, or that you’re doing something wrong—so don’t get hung up on it! It just happens. But if you want to connect with God and don’t know how to pray, or simply don’t feel like praying…then these everyday prayers are for you. 


Returning to the Classroom

Back-to-school season’s here, and we’ve got the teachers on our minds. How many other job introductions are immediately met with, “Bless your heart, I could NEVER!” 🧐

There are a lotta things that teachers could use… a raise, more supplies, another break 😜. Today, as they’re preparing to return to our students, we’re feeling like they could also use our prayers in celebration of their gifts and sacrifices. 

So, if you’re a teacher dealing with back-to-school anxiety, or someone who has a teacher in your life, take a minute with this prayer (and real talk, go pick up a small gift card or something that’s not an apple, if ya can).

“I keep my eyes always on the Lord.

    With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken” (Psalm 16:8).

A Prayer for Teachers

Patient Rabbi, who ignites wonder and curiosity, bless the teachers around us. Thank you for the way they model your careful love and guidance to those most precious in our lives. Grant them creativity to share their passions, energy to complete their work, compassion to meet the needs of others, and discernment to recognize their boundaries. Assure them in times of doubt that they might know the seeds they plant–those of kindness, imagination, and empathy–will produce a bountiful harvest. Keep their classrooms safe and their coffee warm. Amen.


The role of prayer in Christian life is powerful and helps us in our mission to creatively explore how we connect with God in the ordinary, extraordinary, everyday moments of life. For more everyday prayers, visit this page!
