A Spirit of Excellence
(Excerpt from “21 Day Prayer Challenge for Passionate Educators”
by Dr. Stephanie A. Harper)
“But Daniel was determined not to defile himself by eating the food and wine given to them by the king. He asked the chief of staff for permission not to eat these unacceptable foods. Whenever the king consulted them in any matter requiring wisdom and balanced judgment, he found them ten times more capable than any of the magicians and enchanters in the entire kingdom.”
Daniel 1:8, 20
Passionate educators set the standard for excellence. The spirit of excellence is demonstrated by your ability to decide not to defile yourself by eating the royal food and wine of mediocrity in the educational system. Excellence is observed in your character and actions. You are the educator that arrives early to work and stays late to prepare for the next day. Your lessons are designed with creativity and skill and represent the model for teaching and learning. You set the standard for excellence in leadership. You lead your school with wisdom and balanced judgment. God has blessed you with an excellent spirit to transform this educational system.
God of wisdom and knowledge, I honor you. Thank you for giving me an excellent spirit. Bless every assignment that is given to me today. Give me favor with my leaders as I perform my duties uniquely different to demonstrate excellence. Give me wisdom, skill, and knowledge that are ten times greater than the world. Thank you, Father, for transforming the educational system. In Jesus’ name, amen.
