A Prayer for Our College Students

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 135:1-13, Daniel 1:1-17

Reflections of the Heart:

“The strength of the United States is not the gold at Fort Knox or the weapons of mass destruction that we have, but the sum total of the education and the character of our people.”  Claiborne Pell, Former U.S. Senator

Scriptural Prayer:

Heavenly Father, we thank You for our college students. Thank You for helping them with their studies and blessing them in the classes.  Thank You for blessing them with scholarships, financial aid and employment. Lord, we are grateful and we bless Your wonderful Name. Today, we come clapping our hands and shouting to You with joyful praise.  You are the Lord, Most High, and You are awesome!  You are the great King of all the earth.

Eternal Father, we confess Your Word over our college students as they pursue their education and over the persons who pay their tuition.  We are expecting You to work effectually in them, creating within them the power and desire to study and complete their course work.  We confess that favor will surround our students and they will have good relationships with their teachers and fellow students. Like Jesus, we decree that our college students will increase in wisdom and stature and they have favor with You, their teachers, school administrators, and fellow students.

List the people you know who are continuing their education.  Begin to pray for them:

Holy Spirit, please increase the intellectual capacity of our college students as they pursue their fields of study.  Increase the self-confidence of our students so that they will have the boldness to share their faith. Help our students in Christ to differentiate between Your truth and the world’s facts.  Holy Father, keep our students healthy and their bodies strong; protected from diseases, viruses or any other germs from the dorm environments.

Wonderful Father, forgive those college students who have not been diligent in their studies. Forgive them for not trusting You to provide all their needs.  Please forgive them for all acts of sinfulness.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind our college students of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive.  (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).”   

Holy Spirit, help our college students not to yield to temptation but deliver them from the evil one.

Lord, Your Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom.  You rule throughout all generations.  Lord, You are King!  You are robed in majesty and armed with strength. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken. Lord, Your throne has stood from time immemorial.  You are from the everlasting past.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
