31 Days of Praying Scripture Over Your Teens & College Students: Week 5

Well, friends, here are the last few prayers in our 31 Days of Praying Scripture series. (If you are just finding this, you can find the first post in the series here.) I hope this has been helpful for you as you pray for the teens and college students in your life. More than that, I am excited to think about all the unseen ways God is working in response to our prayers! Thank you for joining me on this journey.

If you have enjoyed this series or have found these prayers helpful, will you please let me know in the comments (here or on FB)? I’m also curious if you would be interested in having Scripture prayers focused on any other topics. I’d love if you would share your ideas!

Lastly, I am finishing up the printable version of these prayers, so stay tuned later this week for how you can access it!

Okay, enough chit-chat… Let’s get to praying!

**********************

Day 29: Ephesians 4:14-15

Father, I pray _______________ will no longer be like an infant, unable to discern truth. May they not be tossed back and forth by the waves of false teaching or cunning people who create You in an image of their own choosing. Instead, may they be grounded in Truth and speak Your truth in love to others. May they grow to become the mature body of Jesus in every respect, fully devoted to living out Your instructions in a world desperate for truth and grace.

Day 30: Romans 8:35-39

Father, I pray that nothing will separate ________________ from the love of Christ! Though they may face trouble, hardship, persecution, famine, nakedness, danger, or death, may they be more than conquerors through Jesus, who loves us and is already victorious. May they claim this truth in their darkest times: “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any power, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Day 31: Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Father, I pray You will provide _________________ with godly, encouraging friendships. May they surround themselves with people who help them have a good return for their work and who help each other up when they fall. May they strengthen and encourage one another, speaking the truth in love and encouraging faithfulness. May they fight off temptation together so they are not overpowered by sin. Since a cord of three strands is not quickly broken, may You be woven into the fabric of their closest relationships.

Lord, hear our prayer!
