Day 13: Pray for Your Students

“And this is my prayer: that your love may increase ever more and more in knowledge and every kind of perception, to discern what is of value, so that you may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ.”

Philippians 1:9–10

Praying for your students is one of the best ways to truly serve them. You probably already do this, or at least you plan to do this as much as possible. Today you will prepare to pray for your students in a special way, in the way that they need it most.

In the exercises of the last few days of 31 Days to Becoming a Better Religious Educator, we delved deep into the needs and strengths of the students we serve. Today, we collect all of that information and incorporate it into our prayer today. Remember just like the other days in this series, focus on the process rather than the results. Focus on student needs, not the plan that you think God should have in store for them. Leave that to him. Pray with faithful trust in God’s plan.
