My baby sister is struggling and despairing right now. She is a first year teacher, just out of college, and felt called to an inner city school in Tennessee. She is feeling like she cannot even finish out the year and is that she made the wrong decision. Please pray for peace and that the narrow path becomes clear, as well as that she will rely on God alone to show her kids, who hurl insults and horrible words towards her, who is powerful, loving, and in control. Praise the Lord for opportunities to show those the world has given up on that He will never give up on us! Pray for my sister that she sees this opportunity for what it is and that if indeed this is not the best place for her she will have clarity!pattysyellowbusPrayers: 744Requests: 10

Abba, Father! You are HOLY! We join together to lift up this dear sister who sensed that You called her to this work in the inner city. She is facing opposition like Nehemiah right now and she is struggling to know if she truly heard Your Voice. Strengthen her, O Lord, in her inner man to know that she knows that what she is doing is from You. Give her Your peace as she shines Your Light to those who need it most. Remind her that she is in a battle as she is reminded every day as she faces the opposition to her love. Yeah, Lord, give her clarity and wisdom in this work. Praise Your Name! We worship You. Alleluia! We LOVE YOU Lord Jesus!gsimoninPrayers: 1997Requests: 16

Amen Patty! Lord as this first year teacher goes to work this morning, I pray that each block she drives, You will strengthen her for the task ahead. Toughen her skin to the harsh words of the students, not take them personally, and see this teaching assignment from Your eyes. Sometimes kids act out in a clumsy attempt to ask, “Do you really care?” and “How much do you care?” How many times have we hurled insults at You? And yet You stand with us, loving and guiding us. I pray that she be paired with an excellent mentor teacher who can assist her with classroom management. I know, I completely believe that she can get her students under control, on her side and learning. Help all this happen beginning today, Father. We praise You! ~gailfelixculpa723Prayers: 852Requests: 4

Heavenly Father, I pray first that you give me the words you desire for this intercessory prayer for this daughter. I join with this circle of prayer warriors asking that you show this young teacher that it is you who called her to the mission field of this school, and that it is you who will sustain her in her service to these children. Father, be the lifter of her head. Give her wisdom in how to deal with the disrespectful children, and cause her to give thanks for each small victory, for each time she is able to overlook an offense because of the same grace you extended to her. Father, show her that through prayer, you are able to work in all circumstances, and through an open and trusting mind, you are able to give her wisdom that is far beyond the world’s way of dealing with conflict. I pray that you would build up this daughter’s faith and her determination to fulfill her commitment to you and her employer. I pray that you would raise up prayer warriors to support her as she enters the classroom each day. Place a hedge of protection around this daughter and her workplace so that the enemy and his demons cannot touch her or the children under her charge. Defeat the enemy in his attempt to discourage and destroy the spirit of this young teacher. Let her see her students as you see them, with all their hurts, wounds and need for love. Guide and direct her each step of the way, and give her hope that her investment in these children will have eternal benefits. Father, I thank and praise you for the blessing of this daughter’s heart of service.
