One of the hardest students to teach is the lazy one– you know, the one that won’t even pick up his or her pencil. Over the next few days, I am going to pray for the student that has a propensity toward doing nothing.
Day 17– Father, help each student to not be a sluggard:
A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest—
and poverty will come on you like a thief
and scarcity like an armed man.
Day 18: I’m praying each child will understand that hard work pays off.
Proverbs 12:24 Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in forced labor.
Day 19: I’m praying that every person in class will practice doing all work to the best of his or her ability.
Col. 3:23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. . .
Day 20- God, help my charges to be not just talkers, but doers.
Proverbs 14:23 All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.

Hey Michelle, I’ve been inspired and encouraged by your posts. Today I needed to reread this one and memorize the scriptures. I hope you are resting your body because you seem very busy in mind and spirit. I hope you’ve given yourself permission for”a little sleep, a little slumber” just for this short season of physical recovery. I thank God that even as you physically slow down, you are still very actively encouraging others spiritually. Blessing to you! Dianne
