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,
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.
