“Open my eyes so that I can see all the wonderful things
in your teachings.” (Psalm 119:18 ESV)
“I will delight in your statutes;
I will not forget your word.” (Psalm 119:16 ESV)
No matter how a child is raised, there come a point when they have to make decisions on their own. How comforting though to know that we aren’t really alone! God walks with us and has given us His wisdom through His Word. Today, ask God to instill in college students a passion and love for His Word. Pray that God’s Word would lead and guide them, comfort them in troubles, overwhelm them with His grace when they mess up, and challenge them to share His love with others. Pray that students would be in His Word each day and find others to study with as a way to be strengthened in their walk with Jesus.
BONUS: Send a college student you know a little note today (snail mail is the best, but text or email work great too) simply sharing something God’s been teaching YOU in His Word lately and a reminder that you are praying for them.
