Do you want to make a difference this year? Do you want to make a difference in the lives of your students, the staff, the administration, and in the building environment of your school? That is exactly what awaits teachers in this prayer journal. Composed of forty weekly entries, Making a Difference, by Rebecca Smith, takes the teachers through one full school year of prayer for their district. Rather than praying for students only, the author pursues other avenues that are just as important in the effectiveness of a good school.Every week you will find a different topic to pray over, such as your classroom, the superintendent, standardized testing, colleagues, and of course, students. Along with each entry, you will receive suggestions that will enable you to actually take some kind of action in reaching your goal of making a difference. One week you may want to take a prayer walk around the building. Another week you might send a card of appreciation to one of the secretaries. Finally, for those who like to keep journals, each week's entry also contains a page to write down thoughts, prayers, and ideas as God reveals them to you. If you are a Christian teaching in a public school, rest assured you are not there by accident. You have a special calling for your life. You see, God is using you to touch many people, not just the students who will pass through your classroom, but the entire school district. You know that "loser" who has no future? He will if you lift him up in prayer. How about the new teacher? She just needs a little encouragement. The "Class from Hades" may not exactly become the "Class from Heaven," but something's going to change in that room, guaranteed. Do you want to make a difference this year? Here's your chance.
