iPray: Day 26

A Prayer for Academics offered by Reverence

Dear heavenly father,

I Thank and praise you for the gift of education and academics. It’s a privilege and blessing to be able to learn and increase knowledge. We do not take that for granted.

I lift up those who are currently in an institution of learning. Grant us the strength and grace to carry on when things get tough, give us the wisdom to study smart and effectively. Bless us with motivation to be diligent in our academics. We confess that we cannot do this on our own and need Your help. Father, make us shining examples to our peers, let our light so shine that there will be no mistaking the fact that Your hand is upon us.

Father, I also lift up people who are facing financial hardship in school. Lord we know that education is not cheap but You are the source that never dries up. We pray that you meet every financial need according to Your riches in glory. We decree that scholarships and bonuses and tuition rebates will be our portion in the name of Jesus.

I especially come to you for those who are having a hard time right now and are considering giving up on their educational dreams. Your word says that you have not given us the spirit of fear, so Father we cast out every spirit of fear and anxiety, I speak boldness and peace into the lives of every one of us. We shall not be quitters, we will accomplish the dreams that you have placed in our hearts in the name of Jesus.

Finally Lord, even as you grant us all these desires, give us a spirit of humility and meekness and help us to always remember that every blessing comes from You and You alone. In Jesus Name amen!

Amen and Amen.

Our Lord and God, from whom all blessings flow. You O lord is the God of wisdom and knowledge, and You have asked us that we ask You are faithful and Just to give us our hearts desire.

Academic excellence can only from You Lord, for all good and perfect things come from You Lord. King of Glory we come before You this day asking that you open up our minds of understanding to understand what it is we ought to do to succeed in the area of our academics. Grant us favour with all the faculty staffs and distinguish us from everyother studnet in the class.

Also grant us favour with other students so that we will be able to speak to them about all that You have done for us. Make us like the man you spoke of in Zechariah 8:23 - """This is what the LORD Almighty says: "In those days ten men from all languages and nations will take firm hold of one Jew by the hem of his robe and say, 'Let us go with you, because we have heard that God is with you.' """"".. --- that because of all that You have been doing in ourlives many will come to the knowledge of God.

King of glory let us be heads and not tails and above only in every thing that we do. And when we are finished, settle us in the appointed area where you have predestined before time for us to be, and flourish. Thank You Lord for answered prayers. In Jesus name I have prayed. Amen - 2 Samu. 7:10.

Lord, Thank you for my education -my brother's and my father's.

Thank you that you provided the finances through your hand and your grace. Use my prayer here to encourage those that feel the pressure too strong to continue - the finances too short to see the harvest. Lengthen their sight, Lord, that they might see and trust your personal provision in their life.

Wisdom comes from the Lord!! You make it possible for us to know more than we could ever have known any other way. Fill these students of yours, Lord, with wisdom from on HIGH and strength for the Journey!

Open doors that no man can shut! Cause your earthly wealth to be deposited into their academic accounts - that they might know that it was you that sealed their education. Open another's hand to release extra funds into the hands of those standing at the crossroads right now.

May your Glory be seen and your Presence be glorified at the awesome supernatural events that I see you performing - even now as I scribe my request unto you - in their behalf!

You, O Lord, called my own father to your ministry - a man who quit school in the 8th grade because he couldn't read. You called him anyway!! He thot you were crazy, but he yielded and said, "only by the grace of God go I".. you sent him to college when I was only 8 days old. He flunked the entrance exam 2x but they enrolled him anyway. You got him thru 3 years of school in 4, and taught him to read his first book - THE BIBLE!! You provided clothes and food for his family of 6 and gave him opportunities to use your given gifts to pay for his schooling - while he was a student. He paved the sidewalks across campus in exchange for his tuition. The very sidewalks that carried my brother and me - back and forth to class some 18 years later!

You, O Lord made all of this possible because you care about everything that concerns us. Nothing is too hard for you! NOTHING!!

So I come on bended knee, asking your favor to be bestowed on every student within my voice....that they might know the God they have been called to serve. Wherever they are, whatever you have called them to do - make it happened! Lord, as only you can. Open their eyes and ears to your guidance and your favor! Release your powerful spirit with in them - taht they might see and not miss - every opportunity that you place within their reach - and may they not forget to praise you and glorify your name with each and every blessing that you send their way - in their behalf.

I give you praise even now Lord for what you are now doing, as I speak and I thnak you for hearing from heaven my earthly plea.

In the powerful name of Jesus Christ, AMEN!!!
