1st Call to Prayer Requests And Praises

My brother-in-law has been fighting brain cancer and recently received a bad MRI and news that the cancer was spreading. This is a nasty cancer and the prognosis is not good. The doctors are only giving him 2 -4 more months to live. This is of course a very hard time for our family. I am struggling with anger over why God would allow this to impact our family, and I am so worried about how this will impact my beautiful freshman daughter who is just starting her life at Baylor. His daughter recently got engaged and we want him to be here for her wedding. We need God's healing hand. 8/24/16

Please pray for the families in the Baton Rouge area that have been affected by the recent flooding. 8/17/16

My daughter is going to be a new transfer student this next week. I would love a prayer for her to be embraced by people who are of like mind in Christ. I am in California and it is very hard for me to see her in Texas. Thank you and I will probably be sending you many requests:) Thank you for you your team and all your prayers! 8/15/16

Please pray for my daughter. She is in a relationship with an abusive boyfriend. And she has isolated herself from her parents. I am praying that Baylor can be a window for us. As you have experienced a scandal in your university, due to women being abused, I ask for your prayers for my daughter. And I pray for Baylor, may God heal the hurts and provide wisdom to always seek His LIGHT and TRUE LOVE. I pray for healing, so that God can be a greater presence on your campus. I know domestic violence and sexual abuse are not easy topics for discussion, but God's love and presence is greater and will give us the strength to overcome and to help us handle these horrible situations. And I pray that through bringing out the truth, we can offer this to God, so His Light can shine, heal, comfort and offer us eternal life. Pray for my daughter's safety and salvation. And pray that God can open windows so His LIGHT can SHINE. 6/2/16

They are, also, trying to make their officer list for next year. Thank you. 4/21/16

I would like to pray for my daughter who is a freshman and seems to struggle with being at Baylor. She has not made any new friends and it's getting the best of her. She loves this school and wants to do amazing things when it's all over, but she's going to need some help first. My prayer is for her to become comfortable with other students and make new long life friends. No one wants to go through life alone and I do not want this for her either. In Jesus Name Amen! 1/25/16

Pray that my student has deeper and stronger relationship with God. He accepted God 15 months ago.

My daughter is in need of prayer. She is a freshman at Baylor and currently battling stress and anxiety.

Thank you. God bless you all. 11/6/15

I have a huge prayer praise regarding my son! He had a very rough first year at Baylor and had wanted to transfer to another school.

I miss my son so much. I haven't seen him since June. I live in Oregon. I know he is doing fine, but I would really wound like to see him. He lives off campus and has a girlfriend and a dog that are his loves now. I am trying to get to Texas for Thanksgiving, if it God's will.

Please pray that we would continue to love her well and know when and what to speak, as we wait patiently for the Lord to move in her heart. 10/13/15

Request prayer for my son, a freshman at Baylor. I pray for his strength, courage, confidence in himself and his abilities. He's very easy going, but typical smart high schooler adjusting to the demands of college. But now having issues with very assertive and stubborn roommate. I am asking God for wisdom and discernment about this, and how/what we as parents should do or handle this. First step is to pray and ask God, and that is my prayer today. Asking other praying parents to petition God for us as well. Thank you for the first call! I am out of town but hope to join the group to pray on one accord for our children. God bless! 10/08/15

Please pray that my son who is a freshman at Baylor will turn his heart back toward God and reaffirm his faith in Jesus as his personal savior. Please pray that God bring the right people around him to speak truth into his life and to answer his questions about his faith, so that when he has embraced it as his own, he will have a stronger faith than ever before. 10/06/15

Please pray for my freshman daughter. She is having real doubts about why she chose Baylor, so far from home. We feel that she is not just homesick, but is also a bit depressed. She went to the counseling center, and we will see if that helps her. She was a "top dog" leader and star in high school, and now just seems to be floundering to fit in. We aren't sure she will be returning for second semester, even though Baylor's values are so very similar to her own. God bless you and your Baylor children, too. 10/06/15

Pray for [my student] to feel connected on campus and have a successful academic first semester. Praise God for the church group she is a part of and for Him to keep them surrounded by leaders and friends that encourage and lift one another up. 10/05/15

Please pray for our daughter, she is a sophomore and is an CL this year. She is struggling with the CL responsibilities as there are several freshmen on her floor having a difficult time adjusting to college, requiring much of her time. Please pray for the Lord to guide her in helping these students and also that the new freshmen adjust to college life quickly and make good decisions as they navigate through this process. 10/02/15

Please pray for my daughter's application process to P.T. school. She is a senior this year, and has had an incredible time at Baylor! Pray that God will open the doors for her to be accepted into the P.T. school best suited for her, and that she will continue to trust God for direction. Also pray for her to have strength and peace as she juggles her studies, cheer, retaking the GRE, and additional P.T. shadowing hours. 9/24/15

Please pray for our daughter, a sophomore at Baylor. Pray that she holds true to her morals and values. Pray for her safety. Please pray that she continue to see the needs of others above herself. Thank You 9/24/15

My son's friend, a Baylor student, was in a terrible accident near Houston last weekend. He is on full life support with very little brain function. Please pray for a miracle for Sam, for his salvation, and for a devastated group of family and friends. Pray that this group will look to Christ for their hope and comfort. 9/14/15

I would like to ask that you uplift and pray for both my son and daughter who are both freshmen. Please lift them up that they choose the right friends. Friends that will draw them closer to Christ not lead them or distract them away. I'm most concerned with my son. I do not have the best feelings about his roommate and suitemates and those he has befriended so far. My daughter was always actively involved in church youth group and I know she loves the Lord. My son, on the other hand, was not involved and at the last just refused to even go to church. It was one of my answered prayers when he was accepted to Baylor, because I knew he would be required to go to chapel. I also knew the environment he would be surrounded and saturated in and maybe he then would develop a personal relationship with Christ. So please lift up my son and my daughter. Thank you. 9/14/15

Lord I pray for strength in [someone special]. Help him be strong against the wiles and evils of this world in his day and age. Lord I pray that he would feel strong enough to take on anything this life has to offer him with You by his side. Give him a noble heart, a steadfast spirit and a passionate pursuit for holiness. Let him embrace his calling as a Christian leader in the 21st century and let him know the depth of influence that he has on others. Jesus, give him a fierce love for righteousness and a healthy fear of You, God. Thank you for him Jesus. I surrender my thoughts and questions, doubts and fears in regards to him. Lord, take control of his love life, I entrust it to You. Please be the King of his heart, be all his hope and dreams. I love you Jesus. Thank you for all that you are doing in his life and in that of my Future Beloved’s! Amen. 9/11/15

Please pray that we are able to come together and form a First call to Prayer group in the Rio Grande Valley as we continue to lift up all of the concerns of all of our students. I ask that God use me to participate in this group if one is already in formation. My son is a sophomore this year and I ask prayers for him as he continues to try to find his calling at Baylor. Please pray that he would not forget to call on the Lord God almightly when in doubt,or fear or anxiety, and that he and all of our students will glorify HIS name in all that they do. Amen! 9/10/15

My son is attending Baylor this fall and seems to be having difficulty adjusting to college life and being away from home. We live in Colorado. Please pray for him. Please help us know what to say to him. Please pray for him to be self disciplined and to seek the help he needs with confidence. Please pray for him to see how blessed he is to be attending Baylor. Please pray that he has clear, rational thoughts. Please pray that he works hard. He is my first of four so please pray for anything else that I am not requesting that you can think of. He is smart and can go far if he adjusts and works hard and is disciplined. Thank you. 9/09/15

Also pray for health, safety, and most of all God's grace and peace to all of Baylor Family. 8/31/15

Pray for our son as he begins his freshman year at Baylor. This will be his first time to live in America after growing up on the mission field. He is also the first to leave the nest.
