Prayer for our Schools::10/5/16

And when he got into the boat, his disciples followed him. And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but he was asleep. And they went and woke him, saying, “Save us, Lord; we are perishing.” And he said to them, “Why are you afraid, O you of little faith?” Then he rose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. And the men marveled, saying, “What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey him?” (Matthew 8:23-27 ESV)

O Lord, as our students are buffeted from within and without, struggling with school work, relationships, jobs, illnesses, sports, and extra-curricular activities, grant them faith to turn to you in times of difficulty and bring order out of the chaos they experience so they have peace of mind and are able to focus on their education; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
