Lord, I cannot believe how much time I waste. Please
help me be more intense about my studies. I really am
interested in the things that the professor says in class.
But when I finally sit down to study, I welcome distractions
from studying so easily. You have given me a good
mind, and you want me to explore your creation. Give me
enthusiasm, Lord, for the subjects I am studying.
Keep my eyes open and my mind on topic. Help me learn the
material so that I can explain it clearly and convincingly to
others, especially my friends.
Jesus, you must have spent a lot of time reflecting on life to
think of the parables that are recorded in the Gospels.
Make me a good, critical thinker and help me to express myself
clearly. Help me to use my mind for your greater Glory. Amen.

Prayer for Students – Why is it important?
Prayer for students is vitally important in culture today. School campuses are full of temptation and negative influences targeting students. Prayer is a way to influence students to make wise choices and excel in their studies.
There are many topics in the curriculum that will impact their decision making for years to come. Our youth and young adults approach a time of their lives where they will make significant decision about careers, marriage, children, and other life choices.
Can we live without prayer? No. We need communication with God. He can do anything without man, but He will not because He created us to love Him and love others. He establishes His kingdom through us by prayer. Prayer is one way to build our faith and expectations of His Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. Prayer can greatly impact students’ lives, faith, and outlook on their future.
Prayer for Students – What do I pray?
In my prayer for students, what do I pray for? Get to know students who are in your family, neighborhood, and church. As you interact with them, you will realize the problems and situations that they face. Here are some suggestions for how to pray for them:
- Many struggle with classes or courses. Pray for wisdom as they listen to lectures and complete homework. Pray for good recall during testing.
- Pray for students as they encounter philosophies or theories that are contrary to their beliefs.
- Pray that their parents will provide good guidance and help them make wise decisions.
- The financial burden of tuition and books is costly. Ask God to provide for their needs.
- Pray for those who struggle with balancing a job and class attendance.
- Pray for students to have accountability and encouragement from a group of Christians.
- Pray that God lead them into a relationship with Him and strengthen their faith.
- Follow the guidance given in the Bible. These verses can be prayed for students.
“Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life—in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing” (Philippians 2:14-16).
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
“Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart” (2 Timothy 2:22).
Prayer for Students – How do I pray?
How can I implement prayer for students on a regular basis? Here are some practical suggestions.
- Prayer walk on campus – Consider having a prayer walk around the school or university in your community. These campuses usually have parking areas and streets near them. That’s a great place to start. Walk around the area while praying for the students who attend. Pray for success in their studies, for them to make good choices, and to say no to temptation. Pray also for the professors, teachers, and administration.
- Prayer Team – Other Christians may be interested in praying for students in your local area. Think about starting a weekly prayer team for your school.
- Influence specific students – Email short prayers to students you already know. Encourage them in their studies and ask them for ways you can pray for them.
Prayer for students is essential. You have an important role in their lives. Many students leave their faith during these crucial years. With your prayers, their spiritual lives could be enhanced and remain strong.

Prayers for Studies
“In November 2010, I went on this site to seek prayers for my daughter who was having a hard time with her university studies and was slowly but surely turning her back to God. This was just prior to her writing her second year exams. I did not wish her to re-sit any subject. On the 17th December her results came out and had done very well, and even said she did not know where the grades came from. I can climb on a roof top and attest to the fact that she is even spiritually changed, goes to Church, prays before each meal and before sleeping. Academically she is doing well also.”
Do you have a big test coming up? Do you have children in school that experience trouble studying or aren’t bringing home great grades? Perhaps you have older children that are in college. Or perhaps you yourself are in school attempting that master’s degree. People that are in school experience all types of different things and they have a high level of stress put on them to perform well. Besides preparing for the test, prayer is the answer for success in the area of studies. Prayer allows you to calm your mind and remove yourself from a stressful situation, if only for a few moments.
Many students feel that they do not have the time to pray, and it is during college days that many students lose their way when it comes to the church, though most do find their way back. This is unfortunate because the benefits of prayer can be so helpful to all students. The peace that prayer allows will give students the ability to focus and succeed.
Using prayer is a great way to add to the success rate of your students. What a confidence boost for your child to know that God is on his or her side when they enter the testing room. Are you considering going back to school and you have to take a college entrance exam? Have a prayer said for yourself, a candle lit to ensure your success on your test day. God wants you to succeed in your educational endeavors. Praying to Him will open the door for a great grade or score on your next exam or paper.
