“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.” (Romans 1:16 NIV)
Pray for boldness in the lives of the college students you know as they are in school. It can be a challenge to share and live out their faith on a college campus or in a classroom. Professors or other students may make fun of them as Christians or tell them that their thoughts are unintelligent. Opportunities come up every day to shrink back instead of step forward in boldness. Pray that Christian college students will not be ashamed of the gospel, but stand firm in boldness knowing a powerful God loves them and longs for the people around them to know His love as well.
BONUS IDEA: Think about an area where YOU could use boldness and courage from God to step out in faith this week. Then, DO IT. Afterwards, write a college student a letter about your experience telling them that you were praying that they’d be bold, but wanted to accept the same challenge. Tell them what you learned. What made it difficult or easy? Where did you see God in your experience? Ask God to bless the note you send and use it as an encouragement for them to be bold too.
