5 Prayers To Transform Your Workplace

Written by | May 9, 2018 | 0
Photo credit – Theprayingwoman.com I was well into my fourth year as a high school special education teacher when the looming cloud of burnout began drifting uncomfortably close. Determined not to fall into the statistic of special education teachers who leave the profession within the first five years, I needed a fresh wave of encouragement to wash over me and breathe life into my weary soul. Part of my discouragement stemmed from the fact that I was a devoted Christ-follower in a secular system – a system with strict rules that prohibited me from sharing my faith in the classroom. I was wrestling with my calling when an older woman from my church suggested I use the verses of Colossians 1:9-12 as a prayer guide for my students and coworkers.

Photo credit – Obaapa Kitchen I was briskly walking home from town when I accidentally overhead two teenagers having a chat near the fried yam seller in my neighbourhood.
