Prayer is very important to me....I pray all day long.  I think a lot of times we get confused and think that prayer can only happen when you kneel, bow your head and put your hands together.  But honestly it's just a conversation.  I turn that crazy voice inside my head that never shuts up, into a meaningful conversation with God. Before my first year of teaching, a principal from another school gave me a copy of a prayer she keeps in her classroom. I've had it taped to the drawer of my desk for the past two years and every morning before the first day of school, I pray that prayer.  When I am worried about a student, a situation with a parent, or just a bad day, I pray. I've already been praying for my upcoming year and the kiddos that will enter my room.

This morning as I was having my coffee and already thinking about what I need to print, create and laminate this week, I came across an article that The First Grade Parade shared on her facebook page.

Wow! How cool is it to think that maybe there are parents out there praying for us right now as we go through the craziness of August.

Wow, SpurDog...what an amazing article! I am doing A LOT of praying right now, as my Princess A gets ready to start in a new school and with a new teacher. She'll be'll probably need to talk ME off the ledge a few times, though!

What a great reminder. I've been sitting here focused on what I need to do for the new year and not thinking of how my simple prayers are the most important aspect of my classroom running smoothly. Thanks for sharing!
