Dr. David Martyn-Lloyd Jones (1899-1981)

What do you specifically pray for before you teach your students? Here are two beautiful examples from Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones:

Oh God, please help me to believe what I teach! Grip me with it and humble me with it, and help me exalt in it until I am lost in wonder, love, and praise. For Jesus’ sake!

Oh God, please help me give these young people a sense of You and Your presence when I teach. Help me to give them a glimpse of Your glory and majesty, the love of Christ my Saviour, and the magnificence of the Gospel, for Jesus’ sake!
