Philip H. Pfatteicher, Commentary on the Lutheran Book of Worship:  Lutheran Liturgy in Its Ecumenical Context (1990) informs me that someone wrote this prayer for the Lutheran Book of Worship.

I think about this prayer now, as I prepare to become a Sunday School teacher again.


O God of wisdom, in your goodness you provide faithful teachers for your Church.

By your Holy Spirit give all teachers insight into your Word,

holy lives as examples to us all,

and the courage to know and do the truth;

through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
