I am still working through some favorite verses of friends and family. One young lady present at our Thanksgiving feast said, “I don’t really have a favorite verse, but I’ve always loved the story of Daniel in the Lion’s Den.” She happens to be a new teacher, so while I was at my own church I asked one of the seasoned teachers I know if she could relate to the story of Daniel in the Lion’s Den in her professional capacity. She said, “I can see definitely see the parallels.” She paused and added, “And just in case you were wondering, the children are not the lions.” I wrote a prayer for her teaching career at the top of the page based on the passage:
Thank you for the excellent spirit present in this teacher. Deliver her from any lions (shut their mouths!) and continue to bless her work.
