Praying for guidance for those at school, college or university....

This time of the year can be a great time for rest and relaxation with summer holidays and family time. It can also be a time of anticipation, uncertainty and discernment for children, young people and their families and carers as they chart a way through the next stages of their academic and vocational pathway…

Perhaps you could give this prayer to your worship leader at your church this Sunday, so we can pray together.

Join with us at the FCG to pray to God…

Let us pray.

Loving God, We pray for all those who are seeking vocational guidance at this time in the academic year. We pray for all of those who are awaiting GCSE and A-Level exam results or the outcomes of vocational course diplomas and exams.

We pray for all those who are in the sixth form and FE who are visiting open days at Universities and planning the next steps in their vocational education.

We lift up those who are working in careers guidance as well as teaching & learning support.

We pray for all young people who are considering taking their first steps into work.

We pray for all adults who have been engaged in further and higher education who are planning to return to work after career breaks, spells of unemployment or raising a family.

May God uphold and direct those in need of support and direction. May the paths be clear and the purpose be steady.

'Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and He shall direct your paths' Proverbs 3:5-6.

In Jesus' name, we pray.
