#614 - Our Child is Going to College
Volume 2 - Prayers to Love Our Neighbor
Dear Father, our child has chosen a college. We pray that they have done so because You led them there. We pray they have been obedient to Your voice. Father, we ask that You get them prepared for success in school. - They need to be mature. There will be a great temptation to party and childishly celebrate independence from their parents. However, their time in college is not the last hoorah of adolescence. It is the time to get ready (intellectually, socially, emotionally, and spiritually) to step out into society as a mature and responsible adult in four years. - Father, I ask that they take their coursework seriously. May they strive not just to get good grades but may they strive to learn and develop an expertise. - Father, may they get involved with campus communities where students love You and seek to surrender their lives to You. - May godless students and professors have no voice in their life. Father, their love for You will be under attack. They will be asked to doubt faith in You. They will be told how such faith is foolish. Father, build their character by helping them persevere in their faith. May the fruits of the Holy Spirit be so strong in their life that it shakes the unbelief of non-believers to their core. Father, turn my child into a mature man or woman who enters the adult world in four years as a leader grounded in wisdom and godly character. Amen.
