“Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
(1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NASB)
Sometimes I think we underestimate prayer. We say our “Come, Lord Jesus” and our “Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep”, put a check mark next to “pray” on our to do list, and head on to the next thing. Hopefully if you’ve been consistent in praying for college students, you’re beginning to see answers. God has given us this wonderful gift to be able to talk to Him and listen to Him through prayer. Today ask God to help the college students you know to be men or women of prayer—ones who seek God daily for wisdom, encouragement, comfort, forgiveness, hope, and truly all they need. Pray that they would bring their requests before God knowing that he hears and answers. Ask God to also give them open ears to hear what He has to say to them. Pray that He would give them a heart that is often prompted to pray for and with other people in their colleges and universities and that they could use prayer as a way to draw people closer to Christ.
