Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God. God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few.

~Ecclesiastes 5:2~

Today, let’s pray for workers in schools who are not teachers. This includes counselors, aids, child-specific nurses, nurses, janitors, cafeteria workers, bus drivers, security guards, pupil-appraisal teams, and others I may have left out. These people serve in vital roles and sometimes are closer to certain children than their regular teachers. Pray for them as the guide students daily.
