30 Days of Prayer for Our College Students, College Ministry

College Prayer Guide 11: {‘Whatever’ Thoughts}

The previous prayer guide talked about peace.  One of my favorite passages in Philippians shows us where peace can be found:

“Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.”  (Philippians 4:8-9 NASB)

Pray today that college students would think on things that are true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, of good repute, excellent, and praiseworthy.  Pray that by doing so, they truly would have peace in the midst of whatever trials and chaos they face today and always.

EXTRA: As a fun activity, perhaps think of something about a college student you know that corresponds with each of these word.  (e.g. Suzie is excellent at math.  I saw her pure heart when she cared for those in need.  It was honorable when she put others before herself the other day, etc.)  Then maybe even send them a quick note letting them know you’re praying for them with the above verse and the things that you’re “thinking” about them. Consider inserting their name into the verses above when you send it.
