asking for prayer

I must confess that I did not know it was possible to be this stressed and overwhelmed one week into class, but alas it is possible. I took on several new responsibilities this semester, and am feeling the weight of them all now. Please pray that I be able to give each aspect of my life my best, and that none of the responsibilities are neglected.

The main stress on my mind at the current moment is my involvement with the 2s-5s children program at my church this year. Last year I was given a curriculum that told me exactly why to say, and so I could do that, adding some extra creativity to it. This year I am given just a little bit more then "here is the passage, you read the passage and bring it to the children's level". I love the idea of it coming directly from God's word, and not adding all of the extra "flaky" stuff, but it adds extra work for me as a teacher. I am also no longer just doing the story, but am in charge of occupying the children for the entire 75 minutes with a helper for crowd control. This responsibility scares me because I know the Lord will hold me accountable for what I teach these young children (James 3:1). Please pray for me as the new curriculum kicks into session tonight. I want the Lord to be glorified through this time, and for the children to accurately understand the scriptures.
