Prayer for our Schools - 12/9/16

By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth. (1 John 3:16-18 ESV)

Stir up the hearts of our students, O Lord, to make ready the way of Your only-begotten Son, that by His coming they may share the love they have received from Him with their classmates, a love that is expressed not only in word or talk, but in deed and in truth; through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with the You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
