Catholics have a long history of praying for their teachers and students. And this tradition has continued into the modern age, where Catholics continue to pray for their teachers and students. In this blog post, we will explore some Catholic prayers for teachers and students. From offering thanks to requesting guidance, these prayers will help you pray for your loved ones in the classroom.
Our Lord’s Prayer
Our Lord’s Prayer is the most well-known prayer in Christianity. It is also one of the shortest prayers in the Bible. It is believed to have been said by Jesus Christ himself on Earth.
The Hail Mary
The Hail Mary is a prayer that Catholics recite to ask for divine assistance. The prayer was written by St. Francis of Assisi in the 13th century and has since become one of the most popular prayers in the Catholic Church.
The Hail Mary is composed of three parts: the supplication, the intercession, and the Glory Be. The supplication begins with Blessed art Thou, O Lord God, King of heaven and earth. The intercession asks for help from God in our troubles and requests that He protect us from harm. The Glory Be asks for God’s blessings on us and on all those who are praying with us.
Catholic Prayers for Teachers and Students
Teachers, you will find Catholic prayers for students helpful when you begin your classes. Catholic prayers can help focus the class on the lesson at hand and remind the students of their spiritual obligations. Remember to pray with your students before, during, and after class.
When praying with students, it is important that you model proper conduct. For example, do not cross yourself excessively or make religious gestures while praying with your students. Stay calm and respectful throughout the prayer session.
Remember also to offer a short prayer for each student before beginning class. This will allow them to arrive feeling refreshed and focused.
Please feel free to use these Catholic prayers in your classroom; they have been specially written to help teachers connect with their students on a deeper level.
The Stations Of The Cross
The Stations of the Cross is a popular Catholic devotion in which devotees walk or cycle through a series of eight stations representing key moments in Jesus’ Passion. The stations are named after biblical characters and locations, and often include prayers specifically tailored to teachers and students.
This devotion can be especially poignant for educators, who can use the stations as opportunities for reflection on their own lives and careers. Here are some prayer suggestions for teachers and students walking or cycling through the Stations of the Cross:
First Station: Garden of Gethsemane
Prayer: O God, who hast prevented me from fleeing from before thy face, help me now not to flee from before mine enemies. Grant me strength to stand before them face to face. Amen.
Second Station: Crucifixion Preparation
Prayer: Show me thy compassion, O Lord; remember also my innocence and my faithfulness. Remember also all those who have loved me since I was young; forgive them all their trespasses. Amen.
Third Station: Crowning with Thorns
Prayer: Father, forgive them; they do not know what they are doing.
Remember us when thou comest into thy kingdom, O Lord; we shall be there with thee. Amen.
Fourth Station: Carrying the Cross ( Crucifixion )
Prayer: Noble Jesus, give me strength
Glory Be To The Father
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen
