Praying for Campuses (Part 2): Scripture Prayer

Recently, I have been concentrating on prayer.  Most of my posts have been applicable to anyone and everyone.  Now I want  to transition the conversation in the direction of specifically praying for colleges and universities.  The next 8 days I will be discussing the ways you can pray for a campus.  Even if you are not a student our colleges and universities need you prayers.  Please take time to pray for the students, faculty, professional staff and administration of the institutions that are so important within our culture.

There are many ways to pray. The following list is just a few examples of how you could pray effectively for your campus.

1)  Single Prayer

2) Scripture Prayer – The second thing you can do is when you pray for the campus use scripture. Use verses such as II Chronicles 7:14. Claim these verses as promises. Jeremiah 23:29 tells us that, the word of the Lord is powerful and can change the world.  “Is not my word like fire, declares the Lord, and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?”   Use verses that declare God’s sovereignty in the world or that are promises of God helping those that He loves.  Use verses that say God loves everyone and desires them to be saved. Use any that you think may apply to your situation.

For Drexel, I always think about the Great Commandment:  “Love the LORD your God with all your … mind.”  I pray that those at Drexel connect what they are doing academically with the God of the Universe.

As you pray for the campus God has placed on your heart, are there any specific verses of Scripture that you think might apply to that campus?  If yes, please let us know by leaving a note in the comment section.
