Exciting Ways to Help People Pray for the Student Body Using the
Scripture Prayer Book, Praying Through the New Testament
"I urge, then, first of all, that REQUESTS, PRAYERS, INTERCESSION & THANKSGIVING
be made for everyone..." I Timothy 2:1

 

 

Your Own Prayer Time

The Scripture-based prayers in the book, Praying Through the New Testament, are laid out in side-by-side format. The left-side, REQUESTS, PRAYERS & THANKSGIVING, is to pray for yourself. This will also prepare your heart to intercede for the students. The right-side of the book from the same portion of Scripture is INTERCESSION prayers to pray for the students. Pray each paragraph prayer for a different student.

Alternate Way to Pray the Prayers. Pray the Request prayers for yourself, then pray the entire Intercession Page for one student. Pray the next page for yourself, and pray the entire Intercession Page for a different student.

Pray these paragraph prayers for students, professors, staff, missionaries, and others.

The underlined (NEED / DESCRIPTION) on the INTERCESSION side, indicates the type of prayer that follows. Substitute a student's name with that need. As you intercede, choose the appropriate pronoun (i.e., he/she, him/her) for that student. At first, the composition may seem awkward, but soon you will hardly notice it.

Scripture reference for the prayer is indicated at the top of each page. You may want to read the portion, then pray.

Let the Lord minister to you. Pause to meditate and pray further as the Lord leads.

Praying with a Partner

Praying this way is a good way to pray with a friend, prayer partner or your spouse. Pray for yourselves; then for the students.

One person prays (reads aloud) half of the REQUESTS, PRAYERS & THANKSGIVING prayers. Your partner prays (reads aloud) the other half. Or alternate praying the paragraph prayers. Follow with spontaneous prayers for yourselves. Pray the same way using the INTERCESSION prayers.

Some people may find this a good way to begin praying aloud, or to GROW IN PRAYER by praying God's word back to Him.

Scripture prayers can put into words the deep desires we have for the Lord, ourselves and for others.

 

Praying in a Group

Download the PDF-- Scripture Prayer HandOut, on the Download Page of our site. Each prayer page is different. One side of the prayer sheet is REQUESTS, PRAYERS & THANKSGIVING; the other side is INTERCESSION. Give a page to each person in your group. Each person prays (reads aloud) a paragraph prayer for a student as he/she feels led.

This is one way to stay focused; and to pray for yourselves and for the students. Some may find it a good way to begin praying out loud in a group. Finish with spontaneous prayers.

Leadership / Planning Meetings

Pray this way in planning or committee meetings using the Prayer HandOut. Pray with thanksgiving in your hearts and allow the Lord to minister to you and to others as you pray. Sing a Song to the Lord: (i.e., My Life is in You, Lord; Trust and Obey; Father, I Adore You).
