Prayer for a Student
Lord, we pray for the protection of (name).
We ask that you would guard their heart and their mind in Christ Jesus.
That you would wrap them up in Your love,
And deliver them from all evil.
Lord, we pray that you would give (name) great enthusiasm for their studies.
May you inspire them each and everyday.
May each seminar and class bring fresh inspiration to their work.
May each moment be filled with the energy they need for their tasks.
Lord, we pray that (name) would know the hope to which they are called.
That their life would be transformed by revelation from Heaven.
That You would inspire their direction
And gently lead them into their destiny.
Lord, we especially pray for (name’s) friends at college.
May they come to know Your goodness and love,
To walk in Your freedom and grace
All the days of their life.
