Wisdom for this Generation

prov 9 6(Please join me in this prayer for students and local schools.)

Lord,

We pray for the students in our lives

and the local elementary, middle, and high schools

as well as the universities, colleges, and specialty schools in our area.

Open their minds to understand and remember their lessons.

Prepare them and guide them to their vocations.

Spiritually appoint relationships to accomplish loving fellowship,

lasting friendships,

new Christian commitments,

and emotional support.

When they feel overwhelmed,

lift them to a broader view of their place in it.

Sing over them an eternal song of love and comfort.

Give them eyes to see the beauty in every human being.

Instill them with unfading strength to stand

against negative influences and temptations.

Train them to practice obedience to school authorities

that they may ultimately become more obedient to You—

Who will reward them with a respectable title

in an eternal kingdom where You reign

as a just and Holy King.

In Christ’s Name, Amen.
