FCG Education Prayer (Week 4) - Focus on Higher Education

A call to prayer

Merciful God,

We pray for all those starting university courses for degrees and vocational programmes.
We know this is a time of great change, so we humbly ask that you uphold and guide the
students at this time of transition.

We pray for the tutors and chaplains in universities - loving God, give them the wisdom, clarity
and patience to support the students and staff with compassion.

Living God, we pray for the parents, carers and church families who are waving off their
church / family members who are embarking on university courses. Give the parents, carers
and our churches the courage to be brave about this change in their family and church
community, as they see their loved ones go on to a new phase in life.

Majestic God, as students aim higher and develop their God-given potential, give students
firm foundations in your wisdom, rooted in your love and stability.

In Jesus' precious name,
