Scriptures to Pray Over Your Students

scriptures to prayBelow are some great scriptures to pray over your students.

This doesn't mean that you read them once and then use them to browbeat your students and demand they change. Theses are verses to empower your prayers.

I encourage you to take them to the Lord in prayer again and again, asking Him to work so that the love, truth, and grace of God described in these verses would come to be reflected in the lives of your teens.

    I wanted to thank you for this great website. I was looking for encouraging scripture to send out the the Christian students at U of Calgary during this finals week. 1 Peter 5:7 was exactly what I needed. Most students dont even see the sun during this time of year, and it has a psychological effect on them, and this verse will help a great deal.

    May God bless the work this website strives to do.
