World Teachers’ Day Prayers
World Teachers’ Day 2022 theme is ‘The transformation of education begins with teachers‘. The theme is decided by UNESCO for this year teachers’ day celebration and is chosen “in respect of their determined and diligent efforts in the crucial stages of the Covid-19 pandemic” Here are some resources for this day.
You came among us as a teacher, healer and saviour.
On this World Teacher’s Day, bless your teachers
Help them become even more joyful disciples and profound echoes of your wisdom,
Bless our teachers with the gifts of Your truth, beauty and goodness.
Bless them with integrity, so that they bring Your words to life.
Bless them with courage and perseverance to walk the paths You have laid out.
We pray in the name of Jesus
who knows all too well the challenges and joys of being a teacher,

Prayer for World Teachers’ Day by Dr. Anthony Cuschieri (Former CARFLEO Executive member)
Gracious God stay with us
with your enabling Spirit,
guiding us as we lead our students
towards your kingdom.
We accomplish in our lifetime
only a fraction of the magnificent work
of your creation.
We lay foundations
that will need further development.
We plant seeds that one day will grow;
we water seeds already planted,
knowing that they hold future promise;
we provide yeast that produces
effects far beyond our capabilities.
This is what we are about.
We cannot do everything
and we feel liberated by this realization.
Our work may be incomplete
but it is a beginning,
a step along the way,
an opportunity for your Grace
to enter and do the rest.
Keep us faithful to your mandate
to love and serve others
as your son Jesus has taught us.
