As Christians we are continually encouraged and even admonished to pray for one another. As our children grow and go off to college our prayers for them are essential as they begin to face “the real world”. They need to remain in prayer as well. Here are seven good prayers for college students that you might want to use as you pray. These can easily be adjusted for use by the student or by others who love them and want to lift up intercessory prayers for college students.
- 1 Praise and Worship
- 2 Instructors and Administrators
- 3 Time Management
- 4 Quizzes, Mid-terms and Finals
- 5 Home Visits
- 6 Relationships
- 7 Purity in Thought, Word and Deed
- 8 1. Give me strength to get through this lab.
- 9 2. Help me pass this test I did not study for.
- 10 3. Please help me finish writing this essay.
- 11 4. Please give me the strength to finish this week.
- 12 5. Help me find where I belong.
Praise and Worship
Dear Lord, as I continue in this new college life help me never to forget to devote time of praise and worship to You. I know that you are the One who sustains me and the least I can do for everything that You have done for me is to dedicate time to You. Help me to know that renewing my mind in You is a necessary part of my life. Nudge me out of bed on Sunday and if there is a good mid-week service please make it so I can go to that too. Send new friends my way that are like-minded Christians who will attend services with me and hold me accountable when I am absent. I love you Lord and I want to praise and worship You. In Jesus name, Amen
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:1-2)
Instructors and Administrators
College students have new leaders as they begin this venture in life. Remember to pray for those leaders – they are the ones that have the greatest influence on students.
Dear Lord, I pray for all of my Instructors, Professors and Administrators. As we are told in the Bible, as a student (disciple) our teachers are above us and as we grow and learn we strive to be like our teacher. Please give them the wisdom, strength and courage to be the best instructor and administrator that they can be. Help them to stay healthy as they do well to teach us. Lord, if they do not know you as personal Savior, I pray that they come to know you and in doing so that their instruction and work is glorifying to You. I pray this in Jesus name. Amen.
The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master. (Luke 6:40)
One of the most difficult things for college students to learn is time management. Success in college requires goal setting and time management. It is easy to lose track of time when students are making new friends and spending time in social gatherings. Time must be allocated to proper study and rest as well as fun.
Heavenly Father I pray that you will give me the guidance that I need to have fun while still maintaining a schedule of proper study and needed rest. Help me to know that sometimes I need to “bow out” of a particular social event in order to meet the needs of academic success. Protect me as I seek your help in scheduling time for everything. I love you Father and pray this in Jesus name, Amen.
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
Quizzes, Mid-terms and Finals
Dear God, I have learned so much and right now I just ask that you help me to remember all of those things. Please bring them quickly to mind so that I may successfully pass my tests today. Help also my classmates who are studying for exams, that they might have great success. I know that our success will glorify you Lord because everything that we do should be done as unto You. I pray for peace as I sit for the exams and I know that peace comes only from You. Thank you for listening to my prayer and I pray this in Your Son’s name, Amen.
And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. (Colossians 3:23-24)
Dear God, I so enjoy my independence while away at college. As I plan a trip home for a visit please help me to honor my parents as I obey the house rules that they have. I know that the rules are there for my own good. Help me to show that while I have gained independence during my time away that I understand that it is their house so I must obey their rules. Lord, I think this might be hard for me but I know that You will guide me and gently remind me of the honor that is due to my parents while I am in their house. Please grant me my desire dear Lord, In Jesus name, Amen.
Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; (Ephesians 6:2)
Dear Lord, I come to you because I want to be sure that I am keeping company with this right people. God I know that relationships require careful cultivation and attention. Help me to be friendly to others and to welcome them into my world. Help me to shine the light of Jesus to them so that they too can see how happy I am in You. Remind me that sometimes I need to ask forgiveness when I have offended others. Help me to be forgiving when others have offended me. God I want to be a great example of Christianity to everyone I meet. I pray that you will help me never to forget that I must take time to work on relationships … just like a garden, for them to grow I must be devoted to them. I pray in Jesus name, Amen.
A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is friend that sticketh closer than a brother. (Proverbs 18:24)
Purity in Thought, Word and Deed
Dear Precious Father, as I learn to live independently outside of the boundaries that were set for me at home, please help me to make good choices that will keep my thoughts, words and deeds pure. I want to honor You with my choices. As I choose how I spend my time remind me that You are always with me and that my choices should be things that please You. Help me to stay away from the things that will temp me to do the things that I know are not edifying to You. Remind me that it is my choice and that I can talk to You any time that I am having troubling making good choices. Keep me in the company of others that have a good walk with You so that I too can have a good walk. I know you will guide me and for this I am so thankful. I know Your wisdom is pure, help me to desire only Your wisdom. I pray this through Jesus, Amen.
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. (James 3:17)

When a college student prays, it’s probably close to “Please help me pass this test,” “Please, Lord, let him/her notice me,” or “PLEASE HELP ME SURVIVE BIOLOGY.” However, these may not be all of the cases in which a college student prays. Yes, Mom and Dad I do say my prayers at night. So here are 5 common things that college students pray about:
1. Give me strength to get through this lab.
Let’s face it, lab days are some of the worst days. They make your day seem even longer, and unless that class contributes specifically to your major, you’re probably not going to use it in life. It’s up to the Lord to carry you through this hour and a half lab.
2. Help me pass this test I did not study for.
Okay, first of all, the amount of work you put in will give you the same type of results. More than likely, if you didn’t study, then you should prepare yourself for the results.
3. Please help me finish writing this essay.
Like most students, I pray this quite frequently. You are probably only done with the first sentence and have no idea what else you are going to say. I say that from personal experience. If I were you, brainstorm, and if that doesn’t work, then PRAY! Pray that God gives you the power to think of great sentence structures and the ability to place words in a way that actually makes sense, even though it’s past 10:00PM.
4. Please give me the strength to finish this week.
By the time it gets to Monday afternoon, we all need reassurance that we can make it through the week—ESPECIALLY DURING TEST WEEKS! It’s so easy to want to give up and let your mind shut down. Just remember that the Lord has put you where you are for a reason and will see you through all of your ups and downs. Keep pushing even when it seems like you can’t anymore.
5. Help me find where I belong.
College is a time for reconstruction in one’s life. So often we forget that we are still trying to figure out who we are going to become and so is everyone else. We are all at a place in our lives where we are reinventing ourselves and trying to make a job out of our passions. What we pray about here is that God guides us and gives us wisdom to see what He is calling us to do and that he will get the glory through that.
