Pray With Me?

There they are, the beautiful class that I go back to next Tuesday.  As I get ready to stand in front of these students as a teacher who has only slightly more of an idea how to teach than she did last August, I admit to you that I am overwhelmed by the idea of being held responsible for these students' learning over the next four and a half months.  I'm asking for your help.

Would you pray for my students, my classroom, and me as a teacher on Monday from 7-8pm CST?  I'm spending the day prepping and praying, and I'm taking that hour to really "dig in" for my students.

I'm asking that those who will commit to praying during some or all of that time (or at least sometime on Monday if that time doesn't work for you) would:
1. Leave a comment on here
2. Respond to the email message I will send out
3.  Email me at kayleenmickelson[at]gmail.com
4. "Attend" my Facebook event.

Here is what you can pray for each of my students.  It's a title, phrase, or idea that I wrote for each of them in October and have been praying for them since.

Thanks for thinking about joining me in this!  Prayer is the most powerful weapon that we have, and my class needs people to fight for us.


  1. Awesome, Kayleen. I'm in.

  2. I'll be praying for you and your class. You really inspire me.
