(Excerpt from “21 Day Prayer Challenge for Passionate Educators” by Dr. Stephanie A. Harper)
“May your kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.”
“Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge…:
God’s Kingdom: The domain ruled by God as the sovereign King.
(Bible Sense Lexicon)
“Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1). This was the request made by the disciples. As a master teacher, Jesus gave the disciples a model how to pray. Passionate educators, you are to ask for God’s kingdom, the domain in which He rules, to come soon. Also, you are to pray that His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. This request makes it clear that your earth, your life, and everything connected to it, must be aligned to His will.
If Jesus willingly gave the disciples a perfect strategy on how to pray, why not ask Him how to transform this educational system? What would a classroom or school designed by God look like? What is the model for kingdom classrooms and schools? He has answers to these questions.
However, you must be willing to ask Him to teach. Humble yourself and allow His will to be done. Remember, “the fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge” (Proverbs 1:7a).
Heavenly Father, the true foundation of knowledge comes from reverencing and honoring you. You are wisdom. Obedience to your commands leads to success. I pray your kingdom (lordship and principles) reigns. Let your will be done in these classrooms, schools, and throughout the educational system. You, Father, are the authority. Your commands shall direct every decision that is made. Thank you for transforming the educational system. In Jesus’ name, amen.
