One of the important ways we can connect with our students is by praying for them. I don't know about you, but it always helps me to pray for someone if I can pray for them specifically. So I have created a prayer request template that my students could fill out and turn in privately to me. This helped me connect with them in a deep way.
Now I realize that many of you teach in a public school where this may not be easily posted, so I have created different options for you: "Your Teacher is Thinking About You" and blank card templates where your students can share what is on their heart without it specifically being a "prayer request."
You could also use this with your own kids, your extended family, or a small group at church.
